The Golden State Warriors registered a huge comeback win against the Dallas Mavericks in game 2 of the WCF. They were behind by a large deficit after the first half, but they came back and destroyed the Mavs in the second half. With this win, they have kept their home court intact, and currently lead the series 2-0.

Luka Doncic bounced back pretty well after a bad performance in the 1st game as he scored 42 points, but still, it was not enough for his team to get the win. The Warriors used their home-court advantage to full effect, as their fans helped them to rally back in the game.

Despite this loss, the Mavs played pretty well. Apart from Luka, Brunson and Bullock also had a nice game. They scored 31 and 21 points respectively, and they would want to build on it for the rest of the series. The focus now shifts onto Dallas, where the Mavs would look to crawl back in the series by winning the next two games and level up the series.
