Luka Doncic had been dominating for most of the night, scoring in total 42 points. Still, Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors delivered an amazing third quarter and got things done with the unexpected offensive help of Kevon Looney
“I feel honored just to be a part of the ride,” Looney said.
The Mavericks led most of the way before Golden State grabbed its first lead of the night on Otto Porter Jr.’s three-pointer 18 seconds into the fourth.
“We have that attitude and spirit that we’re never out of it,” Curry said.
Doncic had 18 points in the first quarter, two shy of his 20-point Game 1 total. His 3-pointer with 13 seconds before halftime — the Mavs’ 15th of the first half — made it 72-58 at the break and gave him 24 points.
But Golden State answered with a 25-13 third quarter to pull to 85-83 going into the fourth. The Warriors trailed by 19 at one point, but in they end they prevailed.
