In the first match of the final in Western Conference in the NBA League basketball players of Dallas triumphed on the road against Minnesota with 108:105 (33:27, 29:32, 21:23, 22:26) and took a 1:0 lead in the series thanks to the excellent Luka Doncic, who scored almost half of his 33 points in the decisive quarter.

In the meeting, which mostly took place in a somewhat greater initiative of Minnesota, it stopped in the last quarter. As the decisive part began, it seemed that the momentum was on the side of the home team (89:84), who struggled to stop Irving in the first half, where he scored 24 points. And then Doncic showed why he is one of the best basketball players in the world.

With a 7-0 run, he completely turned the tide of the game in Minneapolis and Dallas took control. The Timberwolves couldn't hit anything. The series of Dallas ended 15:0 and in the last hour the visitors led by +8 with seven minutes to go – 97:89. However, the drama did not end there. A new series followed, this time for the hosts. On the wings of Towns and Edwards, Minnesota directed a 13:1 run and led 102:98 with 3:37 minutes until the final whistle.

Again, Dallas had an answer. When he was supposed to, Doncic appeared again. The Slovenian and Washington made a series of 8:0 for a new lead for Dallas (106:102). The Mavericks then upped the ante on defense. Minnesota made just one field goal in the final three and a half minutes. And that to Naz Reed for 104:106 with 11 seconds left.

Irving then hit both shots in the next Dallas attack (108:104). Connelly was then halved from the line on the other side, and in the very end Towns missed a three-pointer to end the last hopes of the home fans.

In addition to 33 points (15 in 4/4), Doncic recorded eight assists and six rebounds, Irving finished the game with 30 points, while McDaniels led Minnesota's scoring list with 24 points. Edwards had 19 points, 11 rebounds and eight steals, while Towns had 16 points on a poor shooting percentage (6/20).

The next game on the program is the night between Friday and Saturday from 02.30:XNUMX.
