Hmmm...the Golden State Warriors took a 1-0 lead over the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference Finals. But depending on who you ask, apparently that means the Mavs have the higher seeded Dubs right where they want them. After all, Dallas eradicated the #1 seeded Phoenix Suns with extreme prejudice in 7 games after the almighty backcourt of Chris Paul and Devin Booker took a 2-0 lead.

The Suns were the reigning, defending Western Conference champions and had the best record in the league! And three-time champion Javale McGee. This was this no weak squad by any means and Dallas shook off adversity to bury the hall-of-famer CP3’s greatest shot ever at an NBA title...and they did it with a bloody vengeance.

No one bothered to check what the Warriors’ record is after they beat the hell out of a team in Chase Center on a nationally televised game (but I digress). The fact is the Dubs are trying to bring the same level of inevitable domination that their old home across the bridge Oracle Arena did in Oakland.

It was against the Mavericks that the Warriors put the Yay Area back on the basketball landscape when they dismantled Dirk Nowitzki’s #1 seeded squad 15 years ago. So it’s only apropo that the Warriors once again use the sacrifice of an excellent Mavericks team to electrify Dub Nation back to the soul-rattling decibels that once birthed a dynasty.

This dynasty:

How will Dallas coach Jason Kidd adjust to the hellacious defensive schemes the Warriors threw at his team in Game 1? Golden State is -260 on the moneyline per Draft Kings.
