Warriors dominate the first half and collapse late

Finally, the dubs went into the cabin with a break guide from 60:48 and also presented themselves without Thompson until then as clearly better team,
After halftime the same picture: The Mavs and Doncic did not come in while the Warriors played beautiful teambasketball. In the middle of the third section, Curry put the leadership through a deep threesome for the first time to over 20 points. The guests did not fight phases badly, but the constancy was missing. After some good stops, it was slept or not consistently defended enough and Golden State could achieve simple points so often.
