Dallas Mavericks at Golden State Warriors Western Conference Finals Game 2 predictions
The Mavs punch back in Game 2 to even the series. Luka Doncic goes off for 35 points as he solves every defense the Dubs throw at him. Coach Steve Kerr tries to trap him late, which allows Dallas to drill open threes in the fourth quarter and secure a 110-99 victory in San Francisco to steal home court from the Warriors.
Stephen Curry scores 25 to lead the Dubs, but it is not enough as those mid-range jumpers that fell in Game 1, rim out on Friday night. Doncic steps up on the defensive end too as Andrew Wiggins finishes with 12 points on four of 15 shooting from the field.
The Dallas Mavericks want to prove that Game 1 was an outlier in this series, and they will be locked in on Friday night. Defeating the Golden State Warriors is never easy, especially at the Chase Center. Can the Mavs make it happen in Game 2? Be sure to tune in and enjoy the game.
