The Phoenix Suns typically have all the answers at home, but the Dallas Mavericks are posing a tough problem. Three quarters in and the Mavericks’ offense has really been able to impose its will, dominating Phoenix 94-72 three quarters in.
Dallas has been riding high on the performance of point guard Luka Doncic, who has 28 points and seven assists along with seven rebounds. A double-double would be Doncic’s fourth in a row. Doncic does need to be careful, however, as he is in foul trouble with four. Small forward Dorian Finney-Smith is also in foul trouble with four.
The Suns have been led by center Deandre Ayton, who so far has 21 points in addition to nine boards.
Phoenix @ Dallas
Current Records: Phoenix 3-2; Dallas 2-3
The Phoenix Suns will face off against the Dallas Mavericks on the road at 9:30 p.m. ET Thursday at American Airlines Center. Phoenix should still be riding high after a big win, while the Mavericks will be looking to get back in the win column.
Dallas is out to make up for these teams’ matchup on Tuesday. The Suns made easy work of Dallas and carried off a 110-80 victory. The score was close at the half, but Phoenix pulled away in the second half with 61 points. Phoenix’s shooting guard Devin Booker was one of the most active players for the squad, picking up 28 points in addition to seven rebounds.
Phoenix is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Sacramento Kings April 10 easily too and instead slipped up with a 116-109. In other words, don’t count the Mavericks out just yet.
The Suns are a slight 2-point favorite against the Mavericks, according to the latest NBA odds.
