Set ablaze by Doncic’s relentless drive, Jason Kidd, the Mavericks’ coach, gushed about his player’s zeal to turn the tide. He credited Doncic for rallying his teammates, sparking urgency in them to amp up their game.

Joining Doncic in the limelight was Kyrie Irving, who also bagged 36 points for the Mavericks, aiding significantly in crafting a massive 29-point halftime lead. This lead was established courtesy of a 61% shooting rate which effectively doused the enthusiasm of the Timberwolves’ home crowd, who barely had time for refreshments before the Mavs steamrolled to a 36-point lead by the third quarter.

Emphasizing the team’s confidence, Irving elucidated his unwavering faith in the team. He fondly reminisced about a strong gut feeling which assured him that the team was in for a grand spectacle on the court – and indeed they were.

The Mavericks, seeded fifth in the West, now have an entire week to recuperate before they brace themselves for the NBA Finals in Boston on June 6. This will be their first appearance since their champion run back in 2011 under – what’s more – the very same Jason Kidd. On the opposing end are the Celtics, who’ve been resting for 10 days after sweeping Indiana in the Eastern Conference finals.

Despite their shot at besting the Mavericks, the Timberwolves’ Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns, who scored 28 points each, grappled against the sturdy defense dynamics of Doncic and Irving. Edwards stated how their spark as a team seemed to fade during the series, affecting their cohesiveness and shot selection.

Irving, however, relished in the victory, marking an astounding 15-1 in his career playoff closeout games. Doncic too, basked in the win and his player-of-the-series title, reiterating his love for a boisterous game surrounded by rival fans while defying the Timberwolves’ defense with bright rainbows of shots from 28 and 31 feet.

“It gets me going,” he said, driving home the point with a 32-footer in the first quarter as the Mavs embarked on a 17-1 brilliant run.

With the Mavericks putting up an admirable performance, the star-studded displays by Doncic and Irving left a bitter taste in the Wolves’ mouth. The Timberwolves tried valiantly to fight back, with Edwards consistently on the offensive, but struggled to find their footing against the stalwart Mavericks’ defense.

Yet this resilient Wolves team, despite their shortcomings, moodily acknowledged their hard lessons and growth margins this season, preparing steelily for their upcoming battles. Head coach Chris Finch maintained pride in his teammates and their season run, emphasizing the team’s determination to keep building towards their championship aspirations.

The Mavericks, equally excited, anticipate a historic run, with the mighty Maverick duo of Doncic and Irving ready to take on their next big challenge – the NBA finals. It’s not just about the glory, but the sheer love for the game that drives them, and we can’t wait to see how this thrilling ride unfolds.
