The Dallas Mavericks were able to avoid the sweep after beating the Warriors 119-109 on Tuesday night. Now, the series shifts back to the Bay Area for game five.
“I mean, I still believe we can win, you know. Swept or not swept. In the end, if you lose, you lose. Don’t matter how many we win. We have to go game by game. We going to believe until the end,” said Doncic.
Doncic on going back to San Francisco?
“We got to believe. I think our defense was way better today. I think we attacked the paint. Those two things are key. That’s what we got to bring to San Francisco.”
Before the game TNT analyst Charles Barkley shared the Mavs will win this series in 7.
Let me tell you something—Mavs in 7. We are getting this game tonight; Mavs in 7.
He would double-down on that prediction when speaking with 105.3 The Fan’s Kevin Gray.
“Mavs in seven I’m sticking to it baby. Mavs in seven.”
So, we will see the TNT crew back in Dallas on Saturday?
Barkley has been trolling the Golden State Warriors all series long. After they been heckling the Hall of Famer.
“If you don’t leave me alone, I’m going to come to your house and f—k your mama,” Barkley said.
Before game two, Charles Barkley was a guest on the Ryen Rusillo Podcast and shared he can get behind the Warriors but hates their fans.
“Oh, I can buy into the [Warriors],” Barkley said on the “Ryen Russillo Podcast” prior to Game 2 (h/t NBC Sports). “I hate their fans. But we have a lot of give and take, and that doesn’t bother me. They, you know, you know, Ry? As long as people are reacting to your opinion, you’re doing what you’re supposed to do on television.”
“I mean, your job is to make sure people enjoy the sport. You, hopefully, you have good games, but when you, when you’re announcer, you want an analyst, whatever, I’m not sure what the hell I am, to be honest with you. You want people to respond to whatever you say. So whether you boo me or cheer me, as long as they. … I’m like Roman Reigns. As long as they acknowledge me, I’m doing my job.”
Game five is on Thursday at 9 pm EST on TNT.
