Series Wrap-Up: Mavericks-Warriors

Warriors win series 4-2. The Mavericks’ nightmare match-up turned out to be worse than anyone predicted. The consensus seemed to be that the Warriors would play Dallas tough and win one, maybe two games.

This was no fluke- Golden State was legitimately the better team over these six games. They ran the Mavs off the floor. Baron Davis dominated the tempo of the series, Stephen Jackson and Jason Richardson consistently hit backbreaking shots and Dallas had no one capable of stepping up and putting up a 40-point game when the Warriors’ D frustrated Dirk Nowitzki and broke his spirit.

Don’t want to look too far ahead, but the potential Phoenix-Golden State match-up in the Western Conference Finals would, without a doubt, go down as one of the most exciting series in playoff history. Cross your fingers!
