Golden State Warriors
In the first two rounds of this year’s playoffs, the Golden State Warriors reminded all NBA fans how powerful they are. After Klay Thompson did not play for two seasons due to two serious injuries, the Warriors twice missed a playoff appearance, but now that the band is back together, so they are once again contenders for the championship title. Thompson may have lost speed, but their shooting precision is still there. Steph Curry is at a consistently high shooting level, while Andrew Wiggins has also shown solid games. The Warriors got the most out of Jordan Poole this year, who earned an important role in this team with his great games, and the Warriors won a few matches thanks to Poole. Young Jonathan Kuminga also got a lot of minutes in the playoffs this year and he also became an important part of Steve Kerr rotation. The Warriors were a bit lucky because Memphis Grizzlies lost their superstar Ja Morant after the third game of the Western Conference Semifinals, while the Denver Nuggets played without Jamal Murray and Michael Porter.
The mission is clear.

The Dallas Mavericks made a sensation in the seventh game of the Western Conference Semifinals. They went to Phoenix as outsiders, just to humiliate the #1 seed Suns there. The Mavericks won 123-90, and at one point it was 114-68. Luka Doncic and Spencer Dinwiddie were unstoppable, but a huge credit for advancing to Western Conference Finals is going to Mavericks’ defense, which was perfect. It turns out Mark Cuban made the right move when he fired Rick Carlisle last summer and brought in Jason Kidd. The former Mavericks point guard has found a winning formula and the Mavericks have again made it to the Western Conference Finals after 11 years. It remains to be seen whether they can go to the very end and win the title, as they did then. In the first two playoffs series this year, the Mavericks started slowly against the Utah Jazz and Phoenix Suns. They were playing better and better as the series progressed, but against the Golden State Warriors it is very difficult to chase the result, so one win in the first two games in San Francisco would be essential for the Mavericks.

Golden State Warriors vs. Dallas Mavericks Prediction
The Mavericks played poorly in both game number 1 so far in this year’s playoffs and only through adjustments they played better in the following games. The Warriors started both series well (against Nuggets and Grizzlies) and now had two days more than the Mavericks to rest and that might also be important.
