The NBA world was recently amazed by the work of Luka Donsick of the Dallas Mavericks.
Donsick and his Mavericks were able to bring down the best team in the league, the Phoenix Suns, in the Western Conference semifinals last week.
This is a huge achievement and puts Donsik on the radar of many people who have not been familiar with it before.
After the victory over the Sun, many wondered what Donsick would do against the Golden State Warriors.
Well, in Game 1, he didn’t do much.

In fact, Donsick had a higher turnover than a field goal for the first time in his play-off career on Wednesday night.
Donsick finished the night with 20 points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists, but also promised 7 turnovers.
Will Donsik be able to turn it around and become its regular self again?
Going against the Golden State
Donsick is playing in his first Western Conference final, a huge career highlight.
However, he is playing against a team that has played some legendary games in the playoffs.
There are very few strong teams like Warriors in the post season.
They will not let the Mavericks go to them easily.
Head Coach Steve Kerr is no stranger – he and his team are studying Mavus and Donsick in particular.
They have a game plan to slow down and stop Donsick.
So far, their plan seems to be working, but that doesn’t mean Jason Kidd and His The staff will not adjust and will not figure out how to get around the Warriors.
While the Mavericks didn’t make a great start, no one would be surprised if they came back strong in Game 2.
And even if they don’t, they overcame a 2-0 deficit in the last series so they can definitely do it again.
