Can the Mavs Upset the Suns in Phoenix?

18

Today is a Sunday filled with winner-take-all games. The Mavs and Suns are squaring off in Phoenix. The Bucks are looking to keep their title defense alive against the Celtics in Boston. The NHL has two more Game 7s on the schedule today. What else could you ask for?

A quick note: Due to COVID-19, sports schedules are fluid and subject to change.

MUST WATCH:

Dallas Mavericks at Phoenix Suns

Jerome Miron/USA TODAY Sports

The home team has won each game in this series. But the Mavericks seem to have a bit of momentum after responding to a 30-point loss in Phoenix with a 27-point win at home. Last season, in a Game 7 playoff loss to the Clippers, Luka Dončić put up a monster game with 45 points. And his playoff performances have continued to be elite. Coming into tonight’s game, the 23-year-old is second all-time in playoff points per game at 32.6 for his career, behind just Michael Jordan.

But Devin Booker, Chris Paul & Co. have been the best team in the league all season and will have a plan to contain Dončić and the Mavs’ perimeter shooters. But their own struggles on offense must be noted. Paul, especially, has been quiet since Game 2. He hasn’t eclipsed 13 points in the four games since.
