Is Dallas ‘allergic’ to Recreation 1s?

For the third straight series in the 2022 NBA playoffs, the Dallas Mavericks have dropped Game 1.

In Wednesday night’s opener of the Western Conference finals, the Mavs were once again popped in the face (literally, in the case of Luka Doncic) by Steph Curry and the Warriors. Dallas dropped Game 1 by a score of 112-87.

It was, once again, a game that was basically wrapped up by midway through the third quarter. The Mavericks started cold and stayed cold from 3-point land, and were never able to make a game of it down the stretch.

Here are some of the national reactions to the Mavericks Game 1 loss:
