The Mavericks went 0-2 in the Western Conference Finals against the Warriors after they lost Game 2. Luka Doncic bounced back after a difficult Game 1 and dropped 42 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and also dished out 8 assists.
However, it wasn’t enough for Dallas to tie the series. The Mavs were vey much focused on three-pointers. They took 45 three-point attempts against 28 of the Dubs.
“I think we rely too much on the three,” Doncic said postgame. “We weren’t attacking the paint that much. We got to attack the paint more like [the Warriors] did.
“They attack the paint a lot. They have two of the best shooters in the world and they still attack the paint. So, I think we gotta to rely less on the three. Obviously, it’s a good percentage, but I think we gotta rely more on getting to the paint and then kick out.”
