The 16th minute rain was delayed due to rain leaking through the roof of the American Airlines Center. It rained heavily outside, and there were at least two leaks. One was dripping water near the Golden State bench, and at the other end of the court, water appeared to be dripping from a stand.

Dončić’s 3-point shot put Mavs ahead 81-56 with 6:57 left in the third quarter, which was their biggest lead up to that point.

Draymond Green was fouled in the ensuing Golden State possession and his first free throw attempt was stopped wide behind the rim. After Dončić and Green stood in the lane together and laughed about it, Green missed the second attempt before the ball eventually went down. The attempt, however, did not go through the rim and was rebounded to Dončić.

Dallas continued to play 25-6 in nearly seven minutes of the second quarter, when the Warriors missed nine of ten shots and recorded two turnovers.

Golden State led 31-29 after Moses Moody’s jumper and scored just one goal in the next 7 minutes. Davis Bertans’ 3-point shot took the Mavericks into the lead.

Mavericks took half time 62-47 after Dončić attempted a hard layup in response to the opponents Curry’s basket.
