The Mavericks edged the Utah Jazz in the previous series 4-2 to set up this matchup. There was hope that Tim Hardaway Jr. could return from his foot injury for the playoffs, but head coach Jason Kidd has said that isn’t likely. Other than that, Dallas is as healthy as it has been all season. The emergence of Jalen Brunson will be something to watch, as the Suns won’t be able to consistently hound Luka Doncic as long as Brunson is on the floor.
Phoenix just got through a grueling six-game series with the New Orleans Pelicans that it won 4-2. Star Devin Booker has put on quite the playoff show to this point, averaging 23.0 points per game. We’ll see how he ramps up after returning quickly from a hamstring strain that was supposed to take 2-3 weeks to heal. The Suns played the Mavs three times this season and won each of the games, so Phoenix will have confidence going into this matchup.
