The Suns and Mavericks will face off on ABC tonight in what will be their second game of the season series. The Mavericks won the first one 128 to 114 but the Suns have been as hot as the sun lately. Let's take a look at this matchup and get into our Phoenix Suns vs Dallas Mavericks Prediction for tonight.
The Suns, with a record of 25-18, have been showing a strong performance, especially highlighted in their recent victory against the Bulls with a close score of 115-113. Key player Kevin Durant played a significant role in this victory with his mid air double pump game winner! The Suns have now won 6 in a row and 7 of their last 10 while scoring 115+ in 6 straight games. The Mavericks have been allowing a lot of points in recent games - 119, 127, 120, 118, and 124 in their last 5 games so the Suns should be able to stay hot.
On the other side, the Dallas Mavericks, holding a record of 24-19, are also coming off an intense game, though they faced a defeat against the Celtics with a final score of 119-110. Luka Doncic, a vital player for the Mavericks, delivered a notable performance, scoring 33 points and securing 18 rebounds, despite the loss. The Mavs have lost 3 of their last 4 games and the defense has not looked good at all. The only chance the Mavs have in this game is if it turns into a shootout.
Suns vs Mavs Prediction
I like the Suns in this game just because they have been playing better as of late even thought a couple of their wins have required big comebacks. Wins like that really build team chemistry and I think the Suns are definitely building it right now. I also think the Mavs defense is at a low point right now and I expect the Suns to score with ease. I'll be targeting the Suns on the moneyline or Suns team total in this one depending on where the numbers line up as we get closer to tip off.
Suns 122 Mavericks 117
