Dallas Mavericks vs Phoenix Suns Predictions and Picks
Ten games in a row and in fine form, the Phoenix Suns won’t be easy to take down. If it weren’t for a fourth quarter collapse, Dallas would’ve had another in the win column. Phoenix is still too strong though, and the Mavericks’ chances are in doubt with Luka Doncic injured.
Phoenix Suns def. Dallas Mavericks (-160).

How can the Mavericks beat the Suns?
The Dallas Mavericks were close to victory when they last faced the Suns, but they faded late in the game. When they take on the Suns again, Dallas needs their bench to produce for all four quarters.
In their last game, the Mavericks’ bench produced 25 points to the Suns’ 31. The main issue lies in the fact that Dallas’ bench contributed just 2 points in the fourth quarter to the Suns’ 6.
With Doncic out, the Mavericks need an all-around effort for the entire game. If their bench can’t keep up, they won’t have the juice to take down the Suns.
Mavericks Key Player: (G) Jalen Brunson
With Luka Doncic’s participation in doubt, Jalen Brunson should enter as the primary playmaker for the Dallas Mavericks.
In his last game against the Suns, Brunson was one of Dallas’ bright spots. He posted 18 points, 9 assists, and 9 rebounds in 36 minutes of play.
Brunson takes care of the ball and is great at getting his teammates involved. How he leads the Mavericks in this game will determine how successful their offence can be.
How can the Suns beat the Mavericks?
The Phoenix Suns have now won ten straight games. If they want to push the win streak to eleven, they need to maintain their shooting efficiency throughout the game.
The Suns have a good mix of young and veteran players, which allows them to stay composed. However in their last game against the Mavericks, Phoenix shot just 37.5% and 29.2% in the second and third quarter.
It’s better if they avoid a life saving fourth quarter against the Mavericks team. Hopefully, Chris Paul can find his rhythm before the last 12 minutes.
Suns Key Player: (G) Chris Paul
In their last game against the Dallas Mavericks, the Phoenix Suns dominated in the fourth quarter. Much of their success was due to the stellar play of Chris Paul.
Paul was quiet in the scoring department, but he was excellent in every other aspect of his play. He posted 7 points, 14 assists, and 4 rebounds in 36 minutes of play.
Paul’s veteran leadership is what carried the Suns over the Mavericks. A 6 point, 7 assist fourth quarter, of which Paul played all 12 minutes, just shows how game-changing he can be.
