“I trust Steph-Klay-JP-Wiggins more than I do the Mavs’ shooters on this stage”

After a road clutch victory over the Dallas Mavericks, the Golden State Warriors are now on a tightrope against another NBA Finals appearance. Golden State’s 109-100 win propelled them to an almost insurmountable 3-0 series lead against Jason Kidd’s reeling team.

The mainstay of the Warriors’ offensive punch in the series comes from the trio of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins. Dallas didn’t have a consistent answer for all four of them at once, which is why they didn’t win a game in the Western Conference finals.

Skip Bayless, co-host of The Undisputed, doubled down on his analysis after the Warriors’ crucial win:

“Like I said on Undisputed, this is a 3 pt shooting competition and I trust Steph-Klay-JP-Wiggins more than I do Mavs shooters on stage under this kind of flame. It’s as simple as that.”

As I said on Undisputed, this is a 3 pt shooting competition and I trust Steph-Klay-JP-Wiggins more than the Mavs shooters on stage under this kind of fire. As simple as that.

The Dallas Mavericks’ opponent with the Warriors quartet is Luka Doncic, Dorian Finney-Smith, Reggie Bullock and Jalen Brunson. The Dallas quarterback only overcame their Warriors rivals in Game 2 when the Mavericks took a 19-point lead.

The second half saw Doncic, Finney-Smith, Bullock and Brunson combine to shoot 19-33 (57.57%) from long distance, while Curry, Thompson, Poole and Wiggins won 8-25 (32%). Despite that, the Bay Area team had enough firepower to stun the Mavericks.

Mavericks vs Warriors is a glorified three point shooting contest

The Warriors quartet made 32% and 37.93% of their trebles in games 1 and 3, respectively, while the Mavericks quartet had 25% and 33.3% respectively. Golden State, in both games, seemed like the much better team in those games.

Skip Bayless nailed it with his analysis. If the Golden State Warriors can win even if their top shooters aren’t as effective, they’re nearly undefeated in a series.

The Golden State Warriors have missed the post-season for the past two years. This year, they win against another NBA Finals landing because of their iconic Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green trio.

Playing key roles in the series against the Dallas Mavericks are Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole, who are playing at the biggest stage of their careers. In three games against the Mavericks, Wiggins is averaging 20.7 points, of which 48.3% have scored from long range.

Andrew Wiggins is +66 this set, best on Warriors. Luka Doncic is -61 this set, worst on Mavs.

Wiggins is also the main shadow of Luka Doncic in the series, which only adds value to his impact. He leads the Golden State Warriors in net points in the series with 66.

Jordan Poole is averaging 17.3 points with 65.4% shots from the pitch. He’s also a super hit from long range, hitting 41.7% of his triples.

Head coach Steve Kerr always had plenty of legitimate scoring options during the Warriors’ reign a few years ago. He seems to have found the best complement to Steph Curry’s brilliance in attack. The Gulf team is proving more formidable than ever with the play of Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole.
