Mavs star Luka Doncic’s 15-word reaction to Game 1 blowout should serve as a warning for Warriors

Mavs, Stehen Curry, Luka Doncic

Luka Doncic will be the first to admit whenever he’s not up to par. Well, this was exactly the case on Wednesday night as the Dallas Mavericks were blown out by the Golden State Warriors, 112-87, in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

After the game, the Mavs superstar was quick to pin the blame on himself. Doncic knows full well that he has to step up for his team if they hope to upset a powerhouse Warriors side in this series:

“I gotta be better, that’s not me. I gotta be better for the whole group,” via Callie Caplan of the Dallas Morning News.

It was an undeniably brutal outing for Luka Doncic. He had more turnovers (seven) than field goals made (six) in Game 1, which just goes to show how forgettable this performance was for the Mavs stud.

As always, however, Luka is making no excuses here. He knows that his performance was not good enough and he’s come out with a promise here for Mavs fans.

You can’t keep a good man down, and the Warriors must be wary of this saying. They were able to hold down the Mavs star in Game 1, but odds are, this isn’t going to be the case throughout the series.
