The Dallas Mavericks needed to win on Tuesday night to keep their season alive, and they answered the challenge in a dominating that turned too close for comfort 119-109 win over the Golden State Warriors to send the series back to San Francisco for Game 5. Luka Doncic led the way on a strange night in Dallas that featured a leaky roof delay, an unexplainable Draymond Green free throw that got stuck on the rim, and wild Warriors fourth-quarter comeback that made the game interesting.

The Mavs are still down 3-1 in the series, but Tuesday’s win proved Dallas can compete. Head coach Jason Kidd had his team locked in for Game 4 as they shared the ball, made shots, limited turnovers, and ratcheted up their defense. It was an impressive performance from the Mavericks to keep their season alive.

Luka Doncic had 30 points, 14 rebounds, nine assists, two steals, and two blocks in 37 minutes of action. He was the Mavericks' leading scorer, but it was Luka’s supporting cast that secured the victory. How did Dallas win Game 4 after falling behind 3-0 in the series?
