Golden State Warriors vs Dallas Mavericks
The Mavericks will welcome the Warriors to American Airlines Center as they are coming off an impressive road win over the Wolves while the Warriors blew out the Bulls in their last game. Game tips off at 7:00 PM ET.
Golden State Warriors's Latest Performance :
The Warriors are starting to look like the Warriors again, they are coming off a blowout victory over the Bulls where they put up 146 points. Stephen Curry is now in 3rd place for the third most 3-pointers in NBA history passing Jason Terry with 2,283 triples made so far in his career he finished the game with 28 points hitting five threes on the night. Klay Thompson caught fire once again as he dropped 30 points against the Bulls he stated that he loves to play against them scoring a combined 82 points against them already this season. The game was already over in the first quarter as the Warriors outscored the Bulls 43-17 and they never looked back. The Warriors hasn’t been great on the road this season they are 11-8 playing on the road and heading into Dallas where they have only lost four times this season so you can say that this game will be a challenge for the Dubs considering how well is Luka is playing as well it will be interesting to see how the Warriors try to contain the rookie sensation.
Dallas Mavericks 's Latest Performance :
This game will be the biggest challenge for this Mavericks team as they will be going up against the world champs. The Mavs are coming off a win on the road against the Wolves where Luka took over the game. He finished with 29 points, 12 assists, eight rebounds, two steals, and one turnover. He scored the final seven points for a Mavericks team. He is only 19 years of age and carrying this franchise by himself. The only downside from this game was JJ Barea went down with a torn Achilles forcing his season to end early. Brunson should be getting his minutes. I expect Carlisle to have the same rotation by putting Kleber at the four as he scored in double digits in both of his starts. He is expected to contain Durant in this game. It is pretty clear that Luka is thriving being the floor general for this Mavs team as he became the first teenager in NBA history with at least 29 points, 12 assists and 8 rebounds in a single game. He is something special as he should have another great night against the Warriors.

It is safe to say no expected him to be this good coming from Europe, Luka has exceeded everyone expectation. It will be a great game as Luka should have a great duel with Curry in this game.
