“This team is totally different than any other championship team we’ve had”

The Golden State Warriors are just one win away from reaching their sixth NBA Finals in eight years. The Warriors hit the milestone after beating the Dallas Mavericks 109-100 in game 3 of the Western Conference finals on Sunday. The American Airlines Center win marks the 26th consecutive playoff series where the Warriors have won at least one game on the road.

The visitors had a couple of stellar performances from the start leading to an impressive win over Chase Center. Stephen Curry took home the seventh game with 30 points in the 2022 Playoffs since he finished with 31 points with 50.0% shooting from the field and downtown. Curry also took home his second double after the 2022 season, thanks to his 11 assists in the competition.

Stephen Curry has his 7th match with 30 points in the knockout round. Michael Jordan and LeBron James are the only players to have more than 30 point games in a single season aged 34 or over. MJ and LeBron both won Finals MVP in the seasons they did so.

But the star of the night for the Golden State is definitely Andrew Wiggins. The former 1st draft picker ended the game with a career-high 27 points in the playoffs with 55% shots (11/20). Wiggins also dropped 11 rebounds overnight, including six of the best offensive goals of the game. It was a 20-point game, the first 10 rebounds of Wiggins’ post-season career. But the real highlight of the evening was his monster poster on Luka Doncic.

With the Golden State Warriors currently leading 3-0 in the series, the Mavericks are on the brink of elimination. No NBA team has ever come back from such a deficit to win a post-season series. And although the Warriors have reached the NBA Finals five times before between 2015 and 2019, former Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green feels that the team is different. He told the media after the Warriors win:

“This team is completely different from any other championship team we’ve had… it feels so different.”

Draymond says the team has taken a huge step forward in development today, not only talking about the successful launch but also implementing it. But he says this is unlike previous teams: “This team is completely different from any other championship team we’ve had… it feels very different.”

“We still have one more win,” said Draymond Green as the Golden State Warriors look to return to the NBA Finals after a three-year gap

Green also issued a note of caution in his post-match comments, warning Golden State Warriors fans not to get too excited with the 3-0 lead. He reminded Dubs loyalists that the team still had to win one more game to get past the Mavericks. Green says:

“You appreciate the journey… we obviously had a bunch of trauma and crazy things going on, but we never believed that was what was for us. We knew it. that we are healthy, we will have a chance to come back..to win the Finals is absolutely unbelievable, but saying, we still have one more win… I would appreciate that and feel gratified about that when we’re actually finished, but for now, it’s just one more book win in the series. Now we have the ultimate task of finishing this series.”

“To get a win in the Finals is absolutely unbelievable, but having said that, we still have one more win to go.”
