DUBS RECRUITS MAKE AN IMPACT
Warriors reserves attempted a fourth quarter comeback on Tuesday, with the team beating the Mavericks 39-20 in the last frame. The fourth-quarter feat was led by rookies Jonathan Kuminga and Moses Moody, who took the court together for the first time since Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals series. Kuminga scored 10 of his 17 points in the fourth frame, going double digits for the third time this playoffs. The 19-year-old forward also finished with a career-high eight rebounds in the playoffs. Moody, who has played in every game so far in this series, had a playoff-high 10 points in 23 minutes, with the guard sinking a pair of 3-pointers in 31 seconds in the final minutes of Game 4 against Dallas. .

DALLAS SCOUTING REPORT
The Mavericks make way to Chase Center after avoiding a series sweep and recording a Game 4 win at Dallas, snatching their first win of the Western Conference Finals. Luka Doncic has played at a high level in the face of elimination, averaging 36.4 points in five such games in his career. Doncic and the Mavs went 3-0 in the face of elimination from this playoff as they overcame a 3-2 deficit against the top-seeded Suns to advance to the Western Conference Finals. After having top-to-bottom performances through the first three games, several Dallas players performed well in Tuesday’s Game 4 win at Dallas. Reggie Bullock made six 3-pointers and Maxi Kleber drove in 13 off the bench, providing huge rebounding efforts after combining to go 0 for 15 in Game 3 on Sunday. Eight different Mavericks players made at least one 3-pointer Thursday, and whether Dallas can get those kinds of contributions throughout their roster Thursday may possibly determine whether the Mavs season lives to see another day.
