Warriors blow 19-point lead in 4th quarter, lose to the Mavericks

The Golden State Warriors 107-101 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday marks the Warriors' second straight game giving up a 4th quarter lead.


The Dallas Mavericks out-played the Golden State Warriors at the moment it mattered on Sunday, or rather the Warriors faltered when it mattered. During three quarters of the game, the Warriors defense was unstoppable. Andrew Wiggins held the Mavs to 2-of-11 shooting and forced three turnovers in the first half. The Warriors had the lead by 19 points going into the 4th quarter and the win looked like a shoo-in.

Stephen Curry, who recently won All-Star MVP, had 27 points and ten assists against the Mavericks. He hit a three-pointer with ten seconds left to try and keep the Warriors in the game, but it wasn't enough. The 19-point blown lead is the largest blown 4th quarter lead in the NBA so far this season.

Luka leads comeback win

Though Mavs star Luka Doncic had nine turnovers in the game against the Warriors, he made up for it by scoring 34 points and 11 rebounds, converting two free throws with eight seconds left to guarantee Dallas the win, 107-101. Mavericks coach Jason Kidd joked with Doncic, saying "you almost had a triple double!"

The Warriors and Mavericks will meet again this Thursday in Dallas.
