How to Watch Mavericks at Warriors Western Conference Finals Game 2 on Friday

The Dallas Mavericks and the Golden State Warriors will play Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals on Friday. Here’s how to watch, with gametime and TV information, lineups, bios, plus other key information pertaining to both teams.

Coming off their seven-game series win over the Phoenix Suns in the Western Conference Semifinals, the Dallas Mavericks did not look mentally ready to play against the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals on Wednesday night.

In a game that Golden State controlled from the opening tip, the Warriors coasted to a 112-87 victory over the Mavericks.

All night long, the Warriors looked confident, their defense was suffocating and most importantly, they looked like they were having a blast out there in front of their home faithful.

Some 18,000 fans got to experience a dominant win for Golden State in the playoffs, inching them one win closer to reaching the NBA Finals for the fourth-time in the last six seasons.

Stephen Curry led the way for the Warriors with 21 points and 12 rebounds, but everyone who stepped foot on the court in this game for them seemed to have an impact. All five Warriors’ starters scored in double figures for the first-time in these playoffs and both Jordan Poole (19) and Otto Porter Jr. (10) scored in double figures off-the-bench.

Golden State’s offense was clicking all night long in Game 1 and defensively, they completely shut down Luka Doncic and the Mavericks.

Doncic was held in check to just 20 points on 6-18 from the floor and he seemed uncomfortable all night long, being hounded on offense by the likes of Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green. As a team, the Mavericks shot just 11-48 (22.9%) from three-point range, something that spells trouble against an elite-level scoring team like the Warriors.

Dallas is going to have to get solid play on the offensive-end of the floor if they are to have a real chance in this series and heading into Game 2, it will be interesting to see what changes head coach Jason Kidd and the Mavericks make against a stifling Golden State defense.

Can the Mavericks even up this series on the road Friday night or will the Warriors take a commanding 2-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals?

Here's how to watch Friday’s game, with gametimes and TV, lineups, bios and other must-know details.
