Mavericks vs Suns Prediction
While the Suns are the more complete team and SHOULD win this series, the Mavericks have the goods to put up a real fight. Nothing figures to come easily for the defending Western Conference champs. Luka Doncic has been stellar since making his postseason debut in Game 4 of the First Round. The real player who deserves praise, however, is Jalen Brunson. No one could have foreseen Brunson scoring 23 points or more in every single game of the Mavs’ opening-round series.
When Doncic was sidelined to begin the playoffs, Brunson carried the load with 41 and 31 points scored in Games 2 and 3, respectively. He continued to be a sturdy secondary option offensively even after Dallas’ superstar rejoined the lineup. The manner in which several other Mavericks were able to step up in Doncic’s absence speaks volumes about the underrated depth of this team. Both Dorian Finney-Smith and Spencer Dinwiddie also played extremely well throughout the series.
The Mavs are not a team to be taken lightly. Of course, Chris Paul is clearly a man on a mission after shooting 14-14 from the field in the Suns’ Game 6 clincher last round. Even with Devin Booker healthy and back in the lineup, Phoenix is likely to have a much more difficult time offensively against the Mavs than they did against New Orleans. Having already proven to be a capable force on the defensive end, look for Dallas to muck things up and keep Game 1 close tonight.
Mavericks vs Suns Prediction: Suns 107, Mavericks 103
