Warriors-Mavericks score: Golden State again Clay Thompson scores 32 in NBA final; Luca Tonsik’s flow ends

The Golden State Warriors return to the NBA Final for the sixth time in eight seasons. On Thursday night, they defeated the Dallas Mavericks 120-110 in the 5th game of the Western Conference Finals to win the series 4-1. Now, the Warriors will be waiting for the winner of the final of the Eastern Conference between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat.

In keeping with the trend during the finals of the conference, the game was largely non-competitive. The Mavericks hung around early and ran to reduce the deficit briefly to single digits by the end of the third quarter, but they never led the night. It was all Warriors because they played one of the most complete games of the last season. They dominated the paint and glass, with limited turnover and assisted in 36 of their 45 baskets.

Clay Thompson turned the clock through his best play and led the way with eight 3-pointers and 32 points. Six different Warriors scored doubles, including Andrew Wiggins, who went on to score 18 points and 10 rebounds in another strong performance. The Warriors also shot the ball well from downtown, scoring 14 of 36 runs.

Luca Tonsic got off to a tough start, but the Mavericks fired back in the third quarter to lead the effort. He finished with 28 points, nine rebounds and six assists in defeat. Spencer Tinvidi also added 26 points to the bench.

CBS Sports will be releasing these important news soon.
