The Golden State Warriors are one win away from their third straight NBA Finals appearance

The Golden State Warriors trounced the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center on Sunday, putting them one win away from reaching the NBA Finals for the second time.

Golden State will enter Game 4 with a 3-0 series lead, an advantage held by no other club in NBA history. As thrilling as a Dallas comeback would be, it is unlikely to occur because Luka Doncic cannot defeat the Warriors on his own.

In Game 3, Doncic topped all scorers with 40 points and 11 of his team's 33 total rebounds. Reggie Bullock and Maxi Kleber combined to shoot 0-for-15 from the field for a total of 0 points, failing to even reach the free throw line.

On a night when the Warriors shot a combined 11-for-32 from beyond the arc, the Mavericks shot even worse, going 13-for-45 from long range. Golden State had twice as many offensive rebounds as Dallas and scored 12 more points in the paint.

Steph Curry has the upper hand.

Stephen Curry is finishing at the rim more than ever before and making it appear effortless, but he's also shooting efficiently. Curry came alive from deep, connecting on five of his ten shots for a game-high 31 points and 11 assists.

Andrew Wiggins had a tremendous fourth-quarter contribution and capped off his outstanding performance with a poster dunk over Doncic. In 40 minutes of play, Wiggins had 27 points and 11 rebounds.

Draymond Green and Jordan Poole each scored 10 points, with the latter making a game-winning 3-pointer in overtime. Klay Thompson continued to struggle from the perimeter (3-for-10) but added 19 points with a couple of beautiful dunks.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 26 points in 32 minutes off the bench for the Mavericks, and Jalen Brunson added 20. Apart from Doncic, no other Dallas player scored in double figures.

The Warriors led the Mavericks by one point at halftime and by nine points in the third quarter. Dallas led by nine points in the first half before falling down by 14 in the second.

There were 11 lead changes in the game, but Golden State always seemed in command. Due to an injury, Otto Porter Jr. had to leave the game early. Game 4 is set to begin at 6:00 p.m. PT on Tuesday, May 24.

Perhaps Golden State's advantage in the paint isn't due to the Mavericks' lack of effort.
Now, I'm betting on a Gentleman's Sweep, with the Mavs taking Game 4 at home before Golden State completes the sweep in five games.
In Game 3, they accomplished so by allowing only 14 points to the rest of the Mavericks' squad.
Is this series completely unfair to the Dallas Mavericks?
I believe this Dallas team is superior than Denver's, yet the Nuggets did manage to beat Golden State in a similar situation.
