On Thursday night, the Dallas Mavericks advanced to their first NBA Finals appearance in 13 years after a dominant Game 5 victory in Minnesota. After losing Game 4 on their home floor, Dallas had reinvigorated energy and focus on Thursday night. From the opening tip, it was clear this would be a night to remember for Mavericks fans.

This was one of the tightest Western Conference Finals matchups in recent memory. A combined 18 points decided the first four games until Game 5's blowout victory in favorite of Dallas.

With the Mavericks advancing past the Minnesota Timberwolves, Dallas will face off against their toughest opponent yet, the Boston Celtics. In the regular season, Boston dominated Dallas in all facets of the game in their two regular season matchups. Boston defeated Dallas by a combined 37 points in their two matchups with the largest margin of victory coming on March 1 when Boston killed the Mavericks by 28 points.

Michael Finley reminds Luka Doncic that the job isn't finished by taking his beer away

With just under a week before the NBA Finals tips off, the Mavericks took to some locker room festivities as they celebrated their Western Conference title. Luka Doncic celebrated by having a drink with his father. Unfortunately for Doncic, Mavericks VP Michael Finley stripped Doncic of his drink in a hilarious way.

Finley has had his fair share of championship runs with both the Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs, and understands that the job is not finished, it has only begun with the Mavs reaching the NBA Finals. Seeing Doncic celebrate is a welcomed sight for many fans, and this moment with Finley was pure comedy.

Doncic dominated in Game 5 with a 36-point performance that took the breath out of any Timberwolves fan. He dictated every facet on the offensive end of the floor and even nailed multiple shots from the Minnesota logo.

After battling multiple injuries during this title run, it's understandable why Doncic would choose to have a drink in celebration of him leading his team to the NBA Finals. Doncic has expended everything he has had in the tank in this playoff run, and it's been incredible to watch.

Obviously, there is more work to be done as the Mavs will play at least four more games in the Finals and Finley knows this better than anyone.
