Hollinger: Western Conference finals thoughts on Luka, KAT and more

·1 min

The Western Conference finals have been an exciting series despite appearing to be over quickly. Although Dallas is leading the series 3-0, the Minnesota Timberwolves have given them a tough fight in each game. The Timberwolves even held the lead in the fourth quarter in all three games. Luka Dončić’s dominant performance and shot-making skills have been a key factor in Dallas’ success. Minnesota has struggled to find a defensive strategy to contain Dončić. Additionally, Kyle Anderson has been effective in guarding Dončić for the Timberwolves. The replay rule regarding fouls on out-of-bounds calls has come under scrutiny due to a missed call in Game 2. Dallas reserve guard Jaden Hardy has been making a positive impact off the bench for the Mavericks.
