NBA - US Sports: Dallas haven't given up Finals hope

Dallas coach Jason Kidd and guard Luka Doncic still feel the Mavericks have a chance to reach the NBA Finals after their Game 4 win over Golden State Warriors.

The two teams meet in San Francisco for the fifth game on Thursday and Dallas can be backed at 5/2 to win in the Money Line, while the Warriors are priced at 10/11 with a -7 handicap in the Point Spread.

Uphill climb for the Mavs

The Mavs found themselves 3-0 down after the first three games but managed to avoid a series sweep in impressive fashion in the fourth game on Tuesday.

Dallas had opened up a 29-point lead by the start of the fourth quarter and they held off the Dubs' fightback to win 119-109, with Doncic leading the scoring with 34 points, as well as game-highs in rebounds with 14 and assists with nine.

No team in the history of the playoffs has ever won a series after losing the first three games but Kidd and Doncic say they have to keep believing as they prepare to make the trip to Golden State on Thursday.

"We believe it's just one game at a time, we did our part tonight and found a way to win," said Kidd, as reported by the BBC.

"The next part is to find a way to win on the road. We can't get ahead of ourselves.

"It's still 3-1 and Golden State is a tough place to play. But we've won there before. We just have to take care of the ball and make shots."

"Our defence was amazing today. That's how we've got to play, when we play like this we're a dangerous team."
