Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving scored 66 points collectively, and Dallas secured a 116-107 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. This victory gave the Mavericks a 3-0 lead in the NBA Western Conference final.

The most recent contest in the series transpired in Dallas on Sunday, following the Mavs’ victories in Games 1 and 2 in Minneapolis by a margin of four points.

The star Mavs duo led a final 12-3 scoring surge in the fourth quarter, during which the teams traded the lead seven times.

The Mavericks will have their first opportunity to secure the series when they host Game 4 on Tuesday.

‘We require an additional individual.’

Doncic stated that Dallas should stay active even though no team has ever recovered from a 3-0 deficit to win an NBA semifinal series.

“We require an additional individual,” he stated. “Nothing has been accomplished, as they have an exceptional team.”

Doncic and Irving each scored 33 points, with Doncic contributing seven rebounds and five assists and Irving contributing 14 of his points in the fourth quarter.

PJ Washington tallied 16 points, including a three-pointer that secured Dallas’ victory at 107-104 with 3:38 remaining.

A monster rejection of Mike Conley at the final minute was one of the three attempts that Daniel Gafford blocked for Dallas.

Minnesota was led by Anthony Edwards, who scored 26 points but managed only four in the fourth quarter. Karl-Anthony Towns failed to convert four attempts in the fourth quarter.

In the NBA Finals, the Boston Celtics or Indiana Pacers will be the opponents of the series victors.

According to Doncic, the Mavericks’ offence was energised by the Timberwolves’ efforts to stifle Doncic and Irving.

He stated, “They are attempting to double me throughout the entire game, and they are also attempting to double Ky so that only serves to enhance our performance.” “Everyone touches the ball, plays, and man, it’s awesome.”

“We reach the final stretch and execute.”
