After being tested in the first round, it looks like the Suns have their battle scars taken care of after going up 2-0 over the Dallas Mavericks. They’ve dominated both games of this series with Devin Booker not missing a beat in his return and Chris Paul continuing to score efficiently, especially in the fourth quarter. After being in a contested matchup through three quarters, Phoenix ran away with the game in the fourth and will look to put the Mavericks away early as the series shifts to Dallas.
Back-to-back spectacular performances from Luka Doncic have not been enough as the Mavericks find themselves in an 0-2 deficit, traveling back home for Games 3 and 4. Wednesday night’s loss was felt especially in the fourth quarter, as Phoenix ran away with the victory despite the game being close through three quarters. Doncic will need to be produce amazing numbers once again for Dallas to stand a chance but the Mavs also need an answer for Paul and Booker, particularly down the stretch if they hope to make this a series.
