Latest NBA Playoff Basketball NBA Playoffs – Golden State Warriors vs Dallas Mavericks Game 4 Betting Odds – Money Line / Handicap
The second game of the Western Conference Finals showdown will be played on 9am, 21st May in Malaysia time.
Facing large range of defenses from the Golden State Warriors who constantly switched defensive schemes and rotation, Luka Doncic was held to a 6/18 FG%, marking it one of his weaker performance in his current awe-striking playoff run.
The key to Game 4 for the Mavs will be sustaining their defensive effort. The Warriors shot 61.0 percent in the second half of Game 2 and 78.9 percent in the fourth quarter on their way to a 126-117 win.
DallNow, the Mavericks will desperately need Doncic to explode – again – in order to take a single game in this series. Meanwhile, the Warriors are so close to their sixth Finals appearance in eight years that it will be hard to keep a championship-hungry team away from returning to that stage.

“They did a really good job. Wiggins picking him up full court,” Mavs coach Jason Kidd said. “They went box-and-one, they went zone. We understood coming into the series that we were going to see that. We’ll go back and look at the video and see what we can do better.”Jason Kidd addressing the Warriors defense scheme
