Doncic totaled 40 points (11-23 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 14-17 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal over 40 minutes during Sunday's 109-100 loss to the Warriors in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. For the second time in three nights, the Mavs came up short despite a herculean individual effort from their best player. In Game 2, Doncic finished with 42 points, eight assists and five boards while going 13-of-15 at the line. He fell just short of that point total Sunday but was able to work his way to the line a playoff-career-high 17 times in 40 minutes. Doncic, Jalen Brunson (20 points) and Spencer Dinwiddie (26 points) were the lone bright spots for the Mavs on a night when Reggie Bullock (0-7 3Pt), Maxi Kleber (0-5 3Pt) and Davis Bertans (0-2 3Pt) combined for just two points on 1-of-18 shooting. With their backs against the wall down three games to none, the Mavs will look to extend the series in Game 4 on Tuesday night.

However, the Mavericks fell behind 2-0 in the series as they prepare to return home for the next two games in the series. This was Doncic's seventh game with at least 30 points during the current postseason run.

Doncic was dominant against in the Suns in the second-round playoff matchup, but he found the going much more difficult in Game 1 against Golden State. The All-Star point guard finished with his lowest scoring output of the postseason and turned the ball over seven times in 35 minutes. Doncic will clearly need to be better for Dallas to pull out the series, but his outstanding play in the playoffs thus far suggests that better performances lie ahead of him.

The 23-year-old superstar will have a pair of off days before Dallas heads to San Francisco for Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals against Golden State on Wednesday night.
