The Golden State Warriors will look to take a 2-0 lead over the Dallas Mavericks in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals. Here’s everything you need to know.
The Warriors overwhelmingly outscored the Mavericks in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, 112-87. Seven different Warriors finished in double digits, led by Steph Curry’s double-double of 21 points and 12 rebounds. As a team, Golden State shot 56.1 percent from the field and showed up defensively to help keep Luka Doncic just 20 of 6 of 18 from the field.
The Warriors will be looking to replicate the same formula in Game 2, while the Mavericks are hoping to release Doncic and also get more production from the supporting cast. Reggie Bullock, Spencer Dinwiddie and Jalen Brunson combined for 43 points but needed 41 shot attempts to get them and finished 6 of 22 from beyond the arc.
The whistleblowing from the Chase Center in San Francisco, Calif., will take place at 9:00 p.m. ET on Friday, May 20.
