Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic still believes they can beat the Golden State Warriors, despite the Mavericks still being down 1-3 after tonight's win in Dallas 119-109 (28-24, 34-23, 37-23, 20-39).

Odds are against the Luka led Mavs. No team ever had come back from a 3-0 deficit in a playoff series. However, that does not faze Luka's belief.

"I mean, I still believe we can win, you know," Doncic said. "Swept or not swept, in the end, if you lose, you lose. Don't matter how many we win. We have to go game by game. We're going to believe until the end."

It wouldn’t be the first comeback that the Mavs pull off this post-season. They have come back from 0-2 and 2-3 deficits vs the Phoenix Suns, closing the series in style with a 33-point win in Phoenix.

Doncic, who was named All-NBA first team for the third straight season, is the only player ever to score at least 30 points in the first 5 elimination games. The Mavericks guard finished the last game with an impressive stat-line of 30 points, 14 rebounds and 9 assists, but he keeps his mind on doing more.

"We got more to do, you know," Doncic added. "This is nothing. We got three more."

The series returns to San Francisco on Thursday for the Game 5.
