After defeating the top-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 6 of the West semifinals on Saturday, Kyrie Irving and Luka Doncic guided the Dallas Mavericks to the Western Conference finals. With the win, the Mavericks go to their second consecutive Western Conference Finals in three years.

Dallas awaits the result of the Denver Nuggets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves Game 7 on Sunday to find out who their next opponent will be.

During the post-game interview, Kyrie Irving discussed the significance of winning a conference title with the Cleveland Cavaliers again after 2017. Despite being a member of the Boston Celtics in 2018, he could not play in the East finals due to injuries that kept him out of the starting lineup.

“It’s been a long time coming. Just being back in this position, getting back to the finals or the conference finals, it’s just a long way back. You know, looking back at parts of my career where I took it for granted, you know just getting to the conference finals.” Irving said during the press conference.

According to the stats on the NBA website, despite four turnovers, Kyrie Irving ended with 22 points, two rebounds, and three assists on 9 of 23 field goals, including 4 of 10 from beyond the arc.

Kyrie Irving Has Been Incredible When It Comes to Clutch Situations for the Dallas Mavericks

Despite a poor start, Kyrie Irving produced several vital shots in the second half. At halftime, with the Mavericks behind by 16, Irving pushed his teammates, and they answered.

Kyrie’s incredible shooting stroke produced one of the Mavericks’ three 3-pointers in the final four minutes of play, as the ball swung around the rim and into the hoop to give the Mavericks a little lead in the close game.

After recording a 30-point triple-double in Game 5, Luka Doncic continued with 29 points, 10 rebounds, and ten assists, shooting 9–15 overall and 4-6 from three-point range. This was his finest postseason performance to date.
