Curry was crowned the Magic Johnson Western Conference MVP. Thompson was also a star, making 32 points of the 120 that it took the Warriors to win.
Despite having avoided a sweep in Game 4, the Mavs were still unable to make it past the Warriors this time. They did seem to find their footing in the third quarter but that was not enough to make up for the poor performance in the first half.
Mavs head coach Jason Kidd, said, “We accomplished a lot with the two words we’ve talked about: Accountability and chemistry.”
“Now, it’s about what’s our appetite come next season? Next season, are we going to be hungry? And then, are we going to train this summer to understand what it means to play until May and June?”
“We were able to accomplish a lot,” said Kidd. “This is just the start of the marathon, the journey. … I think we’ve laid the foundation, and now we can start building.”
