The Golden State Warriors took a 3-0 series lead in the Western Conference finals with a 109-100 road victory over the Dallas Mavericks. Golden State are only one win away from reaching the NBA Finals.

Steph Curry followed up his 32-point performance in Game 2 by registering 31 points and 11 assists here. Andrew Wiggins was another standout performer last night. He had 27 points and 11 rebounds to register his third career double-double in the playoffs. With less than six minutes on the clock, Wiggins made a huge dunk on Luka Dončić that shook the entire arena. 

“Luka was making him work very hard and what a game he had tonight,” guard Klay Thompson said of Wiggins’ performance. “He was looking like Dominique Wilkins out there with the dunks he was throwing down.”

Bad Shooting Night For Dallas

The Mavericks did try to make a final push by scoring 14 points in the final four minutes to cut the deficit to five points. Luka Doncic put up nine of those points en route to finishing with a game-leading 40 points. Dallas’ struggles with 3-point shooting in this series continued as the team only made 28.9 percent from deep. Shots just didn’t seem to fall for Dallas. Other than Doncic, nobody else seemed to be able to make a shot. As they continued to miss, it appeared there would only be one winner on the night. 

There was some concerning news for Golden State as  forward Otto Porter Jr. exited in the second quarter. He landed awkwardly after a layup. He underwent X-rays in the locker room and did not return. Coach Steve Kerr called Porter’s foot injury “definitely concerning” and said the X-rays were negative. The Warriors expect to know more about his injury in the next 24 hours.

Wiggins’ Performance 

Wiggins has been a vital part of this series so far. The Warriors have needed all of his length and athleticism to go up against Doncic. They don’t have another big wing to throw out there. Without him, they’d have little defensive answer. Offensively, he’s taking advantage of Dallas overloading to stop Curry and Thompson. That has certainly created avenues to the rim without a true rim protector to deny him. Wiggins finished with a playoff high 27 points.
