Dallas Mavericks’ star Luka Doncic struggled in his team’s 112-87 loss to the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals on Wednesday night.
Doncic had 20 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and seven turnovers on 6-18 shooting from the field, 3-10 shooting from three, and 5-8 shooting from the line.
Still, Doncic was the Mavs’ highest scorer; guard Spencer Dinwiddie was the team’s second highest scorer with 17 points on 5-11 shooting.
Stephen Curry led the way for the Warriors with 21 points, 12 rebounds, and four assists on 7-16 shooting from the field, 3-9 shooting from three, and 4-7 shooting from the line.
Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole added 19 points each.
The Mavs (13) committed less turnovers than the Warriors (15); which is a good sign for Dallas fans going into Game 2.
However, the Mavs will need to shoot better than 36% from the field and 23% from three to have a chance at consistently beating the Warriors.
