With a Game 3 victory, Curry and the Warriors push the Mavericks to the brink of elimination

DALLAS, Texas (AP) Stephen Curry scored 31 points, Andrew Wiggins added 27, and the Golden State Warriors defeated the Dallas Mavericks 109–100 on Sunday night

Klay Thompson scored 19 points, including a pair of clutch fourth-quarter three-pointers, as the Warriors moved within one win of a return to the NBA Finals

Golden State, who swept Portland in the 2019 West finals before Toronto won the title, will try to complete the sweep in Game 4 on Tuesday in Dallas

Doncic scored 40 points and broke the first-quarter buzzer with a 32-footer as the Mavericks trailed 2-0 at home against top-seeded Phoenix before winning the West semifinal series in seven games

That shimmy-inducing bucket was a blip on an otherwise poor night from three-point range for the Mavericks, who missed their first seven attempts and ended 13 of 45

Reggie Bullock and Maxi Kleber, Dallas' two long-range specialists, combined to miss all 12 of their three-point attempts and were 0-for-15 overall

Both players went scoreless, cancelling Spencer Dinwiddie's 26 points off the bench. Jalen Brunson scored 20 points

Midway through the fourth quarter, Wiggins' dunk over Doncic was first called an offensive foul

The Warriors appeared, and it was determined that Wiggins' elbow to Doncic constituted accidental contact, giving Golden State a 93–83 advantage

About a minute later, Wiggins, who had 11 rebounds, went fast down the right baseline for a follow dunk on Curry's miss

The Warriors set an NBA record by winning at least one away game for the 26th straight series
