There are no two-ways in stating that Golden State Warriors, Stephen Curry enters the 2021-22 Western Conference Finals as the favorites against Luka Doncic’s Dallas Mavericks. On the same note, the Dubs marquee went onto hit the opposition with the most brutal and disrespectful slap after this epic 3-pointer in the third quarter of Game 1 at Chase Center.
Given that Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson majorly struggled in the first half of Game 1, Curry found himself in a wide-open space in the third quarter. Although Mavs’ Dwight Powell saw him, yet it was too late to catch the 3-point King as he launched a long range shot from downtown to swoosh the bucket ever so comfortably. Take a look at the video below.
Stephen Curry bullies Mavs in Game 1
After knocking the 3-pointer, Stephen Curry surely opened the box of his ‘out-of-the-world’ dance moves to add salt on the burns of the opposition. Not only did Dallas Mavericks struggled in the second half of Game 1, but the Warriors went onto impose their authority, with majority of their players making space and finding loopholes in the Mavericks’ defense.
Talking particular about the peculiar dance moves, Stephen Curry had every reason to celebrate the shot for sure. Not only did it extend their lead to 14 points at that moment, but it was also quite the confidence-booster for him as the Mavs kept on double-teaming him up in the game.
The first showdown of the WC Final ended with Dallas Mavericks only scoring 42 points in the second half. While they were outscored 58-42, only to eventually fall prey by 25-point margin. Seven Warriors stars went onto register tallies in double digits, with Stephen Curry scoring game-high 21 points. He was supported two young studs, Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins with 19 points respectively.
Dallas Mavericks are once again down to begin their respective 7-game series. Will they be able to bounce back like they have in the past against the experienced Golden State Warriors? Remains to be seen.
