NBA Twitter reacts to Warriors winning thriller in Dallas

The Golden State Warriors‘ road trip didn’t start the way the team would have hoped, but they’ll be returning to the Chase Center on a winning streak after edging Luka Doncic’s Mavericks on Wednesday, 126-

The Warriors entered the game just a half-game ahead of the Thunder and Mavericks in the Western Conference, but clinched what could be a vital tiebreaker over the Mavericks as the regular season draws to a close.

Steph Curry found Draymond Green for a crucial bucket that turned into a three-point play, and then later put the Warriors up 127-125 with a blow-by layup with 8.5 seconds remaining in the fourth.


Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, however, already stated his intent to protest the outcome of the came should the Mavericks lose by two according to the ESPN broadcast, due to a controversial play in the third quarter. The Mavericks thought they had possession of the ball and allowed the Warriors to inbound unguarded, leading to an easy two points for the Warriors.

The Mavericks misplayed their next possession as Doncic ended up trapped under the basket and missed a short shot, and the Warriors held on for a very important victory in the race for playoff seeding.
