The Dallas Mavericks once again find themselves 0-2 in a series after the Golden State Warriors showed their quality and returned from a 19-point deficit on Friday night. Luka Doncic was on another level for the Mavs, but his performance wasn't enough to lead his team to the promised land, leaving the door open for the Warriors to take a commanding 2-0 lead.
It was a terrible ending for the Texans after finishing the first half with a big lead that couldn't keep down the stretch. Stephen Curry took care of business and led his team to the promised land, even hitting a dagger to end the Mavs' hopes of making a comeback.
Luka had a hard time trying to lead his team to the win, but that wasn't the only thing he struggled with. Following the match, the Slovenian player spoke to reporters and couldn't understand a couple of words from one of those. Doncic starred in a fun moment with this person, asking them to clarify what they meant (2:23):
"Is this the most substantial bit of adversity that you guys have faced these playoffs and how do you bounce back now?" the reporter asked Doncic.
“Can you normal English for me? I don’t understand those two words,” Luka replied to the reporter, who laughed before asking the question again.
"Is this the toughest situation that you guys have faced in the playoffs?" he asked.
Luka then proceeded to explain that the Warriors have a great team with championship experience, and even though the Mavs held a huge advantage over there, nothing was decided until the final buzzer.
The Mavs now head back to Dallas trying to tie the series, and everybody is waiting to see what Doncic can do at home. The Warriors look very solid right now and the Mavs need to make big adjustments to turn things around.
