Mavericks Too Big For Warriors

The Dallas Mavericks cruised to a 91-71 victory over the Golden State Warriors in the Las Vegas Summer League on Monday at the Thomas and Mack Center.
The Mavericks (2-1) controlled the game from the tip-off and blitzed the Warriors with a 14-0 run in the fourth quarter that sealed the win. Phil Greene led the way for Dallas with 14 points and shot an impressive 4-of-8 from beyond the arc. Former Louisville standout Ray Spalding chipped in with nine rebounds and eight points.
Golden State (1-2) never saw the lead, as the Warriors shot a sluggish 35.9 percent from the floor and struggled from beyond the arc, making only eight treys in 23 attempts. Without second-year forward Jordan Bell (shoulder) in the lineup, the Warriors were out-rebounded 55-34 and only saw double-digit scoring performances from Kendrick Nunn and Josh Magette, who each finished with 10 points.
This game concluded the first set of games for both teams, and both will now await seeding for tournament play, which begins Wednesday.
