It didn’t take long for the intensity of the Western Conference finals between the Warriors and Dallas Mavericks to pick up.
With 8:25 remaining in the first quarter of Game 1, the hand of Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins made unintentional contact with Luka Dončić while the Mavericks star attempted a cross over.
Wiggins’ scrape left a large battle scar across Dončić’s face. The mark made its rounds on Twitter once the TNT television broadcast zoomed in on Dončić’s mugshot during a pair of free-throw attempts.
After the first quarter, the Warriors led Dallas 28-18. Dončić had eight points on 3-of-8 shooting to go along with his scar.
