Dallas is now 2-6 when Doncic scores 40+ in the playoffs in his career.

"I'm still learning," the Slovenian wunderkind said post-game. "I think the first two quarters I played very bad. That's on me. But I'm still learning.

After this season is done, wherever we are, I think I'm going to look back and learn a lot of things. It's my first time in Conference Finals in the NBA. I'm 23, man. I'm still learning a lot."

Dallas will have to make history in order for the Warriors to not advance to the NBA Finals.

GSW takes a 3-0 series lead, and NBA teams are 146-0 when having a 3-0 advantage in the best-of-seven series.
