Dallas Mavericks defeated Golden State Warriors 119-109 on Tuesday night to avoid being swept in the Western Conference finals at the American Airlines Center. The loss ended the Warriors’ nine-game winning streak in Western Conference finals games, though they are still in control of this series as they head back to California for Game 5.

Luka Doncic scored 30 points and 14 rebounds as it was his 10th double in his 14 games this postseason. Dorian Finney-Smith had 23 points, and Bullock scored 18 on 6-of-10 shooting, all of them coming from 3 pointers. The Mavs were 20 of 43 on 3 pointers.

Stephen Curry had 20 points and returned to the game with 3:22 left, which was his first appearance in the fourth quarter after the Warriors had cut a 29-points deficit to 110-102. Jonathan Kuminga had scored 17 points and Andrew Wiggins 12-points for the Warriors. There was even a 16-minute rain delay at the start of the second half which caused leaking of the roof at American Airlines Center.

Reports have suggested at least two leaks, as one was dropping water near the bench of Golden State, while at the other end of the court, water appeared to be falling in the stands. Arena workers covered the corner of the court in front of the Warriors’ bench with towels to contain the runoff from the second roof leak that delayed a Mavericks game this season.

The video which emerged from the court saw coach Jason Kidd and general manager Nico Harrison conversing at the bench and pointing up at the ceiling, where maintenance employees tried to contain the issue. Sensing the environment, the arena DJ played rain delay-themed music for entertainment, such as Rihanna’s Umbrella and the Jeopardy theme song. As per the pictures doing the rounds on social media, Mavericks governor Mark Cuban seemed not pleased with Tuesday night’s leaking incident.
