Looks like it’s near the end of the Dallas Mavericks.
After a 109-100 Game 3 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Sunday night, Luka Donsic and his Maverick are now 3-0 up against the former champions.
After losing just two matches, their chances of returning to the series were slim.
Their possibilities are all but non-existent now.

Many NBA experts and analysts point out that no team in the league’s history has recovered from a 3-0 deficit.
Although it is not impossible to find their place again and fight back in the series – designed to break records – the Mavericks will certainly not be able to do that if they continue to play on Sunday night.
Outsmarted by Golden State
Looking at Sunday’s game, you saw a team that was fast, integrated, smart and adaptable.
And then there was Mavericks.
The Warriors lapped Mavericks for almost the entire game.
Their defenses were weak and forced Donsik to rely on others who were not always able to help.
Reggie Bullock, for example, was different from himself and scored zero points.
Maxi Kleber suffered the same fate and was literally nervous about giving shots for most of the game.
Donsick was tough, taking another 40 points.
But it wasn’t enough – not by a long shot.
In everything from offense to defense, the Warriors had a tough handle in the game for almost every minute.
The Mavericks can’t get their heads around the Warriors and that’s why the thought of making their history and overcoming this 3-0 hole seems far away.
