Mavericks vs Warriors Prediction: Last Game Analysis
Can the Warriors get back to winning ways?
The Golden State Warriors dropped another away fixture with the defeat to the Denver Nuggets in the last game. The defense lacked a solid strategy to counter both Jokic and Murray. The Warriors shot well, especially from the 3-point line with an accuracy of 50.0%. Their free throw accuracy of 63.2% looked too low against 76.2% of the Nuggets. The Warriors also committed 23 turnovers which made things difficult for them. The absence of Klay Thompson turned out to be a big disadvantage for Golden State.
Stephen Curry was the top performer for the Warriors again as he finished with 28 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists. Jordan Poole scored 22 points with 5 assists and 3 rebounds.
Are the Mavericks good enough to stun the defending champions at their home?
The Dallas Mavericks are coming off a home win against the New Orleans Pelicans. Another stellar show by Doncic helped the Mavericks dominate the visitors. However, his exit with 6:47 remaining turned the tables as the Pelicans fought back from a deficit of 27 points. They tried hard to close the gap in the closing minutes. In the end, Dallas managed to win the contest by a margin of 5 points. The Mavericks need to improve their 3-pointer success rate which dipped to 25.0% in the last game.
Luka Doncic led the scoring for Dallas with 31 points. He also added 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Spencer Dinwiddie gave a valuable contribution of 21 points with 4 assists and 3 rebounds.
