Dallas Mavericks vs. Phoenix Suns Prediction

At home, the Phoenix Suns shot 64.5% from the field, including 13-of-25 from three-point range to win Game 2 by 20 points.

The Mavericks only brought down 25 rebounds and only 18 were on the defensive side of the ball. The Suns have absolutely dominated around the rim on both ends of the floor.

The Suns held the Mavericks to just 32 points in the paint while Phoenix scored 50 points in the paint.

The Mavericks don't have much production away from Luka Doncic right now. In Game 2, Jalen Brunson shot just 3-for-12 from the field in 28 minutes. Meanwhile, Spencer Dinwiddie scored 11 points on 3-of-10 from the field. On the other hand, Doncic put up 35 points, seven assists, and five rebounds in 36 minutes.

The Suns have more stars, more playmakers, and just play with more consistency. The Suns have a plan and that's to force the rock inside and score against a weak Mavericks defense.

The only way the Mavericks are going to win Game 3 is if the Mavericks outshoot the Suns, at home. But right now, things look bleak. The Suns aren't going to miss easy layups around the rim. Sure, Phoenix won't shoot 52% from deep on the road, but if they continue to play inside-out, they'll get very good looks that will be knocked down.

The Mavericks are no match for the Phoenix Suns in this series. Dallas won't be able to defend inside or out-shoot the Suns to win a game. Take the Suns.
