The Warriors travel on the road for a two-game road trip after beating the Miami Heat on Monday with a score of 115-108. Meanwhile, the Mavericks extended their winning streak to three games after a 103-89 home victory against the Denver Nuggets. Dating back to the 2019-2020 season, Golden State has lost five out of the last six matchups against Dallas. Their most recent game against each other was played on April 27, 2021 in a game the Warriors lost, 103-133.
Golden State still holds the best record in the NBA by half a game over the Phoenix Suns. The great thing about this team is that they can win in a multitude of ways. Stephen Curry struggled in their last game against the Heat, shooting 3-of-17 for 9 points, however the Warriors still found a way to win. Draymond Green was a defensive menace, while offensive outbursts from several players, including Jordan Poole who chipped in a game-high 32 points, showed that this team is more than capable of winning during a Curry off-night. Look for Golden State to carry this momentum against Luka Doncic and the Mavericks who sneakily hold a top 5 defensive rating over the past month according to NBA.com.
It should be a fun game. Enjoy the basketball Dub Nation. GO WARRIORS!!!
