AThe Final of the Western Conference in the NBA started, facing two of the players who are emblems of the NBA such as Stephen Curry and Luka Doncic who arrived still dragging the magical night he had last Sunday in game 7 against the Suns. However, it became clear that against a team with the experience of Golden State, it takes more than Luka’s magic.

The Warriors imposed conditions at home and took the resounding victory 112-87 to take the lead in the series 1-0and deal a blow to the morale of the Mavs that was on the rise after eliminating Phoenix. Only the first half we could see resistance from the Mavs, they finished down only by 9 (54-45), but at the beginning of the second half there was only one team on the court, that was the Warriors.

Golden State’s offense exploded in the third quarter, Stephen Curry found his distance and with two 3-pointers helped extend the lead for the Warriors who applied great defense on Doncic freezing him to only 20 points, only 2 of them in the second half.

The difference extended up to 20 points and both coaches decided that there was nothing to fight for, giving way to players who have had little activity.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 21 points and 12 rebounds.In total, six Golden State players finished with double figures in points. Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole contributed 19 each.

In the previous series against Memphis, he stepped on the court in four of the six games, being the fifth game when he had the most activity with 16 minutes, although it was precisely when the Grizzlies beat the Warriors 134-85.
