THE STORY: As Jordan pointed out in the preview, the Mavericks very rarely lose back to back games. The Suns are an interesting team for a bounce back game as they’re talented but inconsistent. They defeated the Wizards Friday evening. Hopefully Dallas comes out of the gate ready to play.
Luka Doncic in particular needs a bounce back performance after a sloppy game against Houston where he couldn’t hit an outside shot all evening. He was also very loose with the ball, coughing it up eight times.
The Suns are playing for next season and beating the Mavericks would be a highlight as they try to assess the team they currently have. If you’re bored, I went on a Suns podcast here where we discussed the Dallas and Phoenix rosters.
