After the win in Game 2, Phoenix Suns increased their winning streak against Dallas Mavericks to 11, enough to see the disparity between the two teams. Despite better control of the game in the first half of Game 2, the Horses’ weakness was still evident when their star had to go out to rest. Doncic continued to become the main with 35 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. Compared to the 45 points scored in game 1, it shows a significant decrease in the effectiveness of the former Madrid star in this BO7.
While Dinwiddie was still struggling to find his form, Brunson seemed to disappear in both games before Suns. The reason was that Ayton and McGee were too solid defensively.
Looking at Phoenix Suns, they are a very stable team at this point. Chris Paul got 28 points in the last match, the attack was not too dependent on Booker as before. The possibility that Game 3 will continue to end quickly is very high, if the Suns continue to maintain their current performance.
The score in the first 2 games has always exceeded expectations with over 235 points scored. The next game probably made no difference, as The Mavs’ defense wasn’t good enough to stop Ayton’s powerful or Paul’s ingenuity.
