He did struggle shooting the ball, going 3-of-11 from the field, 0-of-2 from beyond the arc, and 4-of-10 from the free throw line. If Smith can continue to play this well, he will surely be in the conversation for Rookie of the Year.

Nick Young hits four three-pointers

Nick Young had a great offensive game off the bench for the Golden State Warriors. Young contributed 13 points and one rebound in just 19 minutes. He shot 50 percent from the field and 57 percent from beyond the arc. Nick Young will not have a lot of minutes this season, but he can heat up quickly and light up the stat sheets despite playing limited minutes.

Jordan Bell gets a lot of hate after the game

Jordan Bell only played nine minutes for the Warriors. He only contributed six points, four rebounds, two assists, and one block.

But what got the people buzzing was his self alley-oop dunk at the two-minute mark of the fourth quarter.

A debate among fans suggested that this was either a dunk as a candidate for dunk of the year or simply arrogant and disrespectful. Steve Kerr went to Rick Carlisle after the game to apologize for the dunk, but Carlisle just walked past Kerr. Draymond Green also said that it was a great dunk and it would not have made any difference if he just dunked it normally.

CUrry makes 13 free throws

Stephen Curry struggled with his three-point shot against the Mavericks but was still able to score 29 points. He also added two rebounds, eight assists, and four steals in 31 minutes. He shot 47 percent from the field, 2-of-10 from beyond the arc, and 13-of-13 from the free throw line. Curry has been red hot in their first four games. He has averaged 29 points, four rebounds, 6 assists, and one steal per game. Curry has now made a total of 15 three-pointers in just four games. #The Golden State
