Dallas Mavericks vs. Phoenix Suns

The Phoenix Suns are one win away from making it to the Western Conference finals. On Tuesday night, they beat the Dallas Mavericks 110-80 to go up 3-2 in the series. Devin Booker's 28 points and seven rebounds helped the Suns win the game.

Even though Dallas did well in the first half, they fell behind early in the second half and never caught up. Poor shooting and 12 turnovers in the third quarter gave the Suns a massive lead, and now the Mavericks are in danger of losing the series in Game 6 on Thursday night.

Dallas Mavericks

Finney-Smith, Bullock, and Kleber had shot more than 40 percent from deep going into Game 5. The three missed all 12 of their shots on Tuesday night. Dallas won't win many games as long as these three players are struggling, and it was just one part of the Mavericks' offense falling apart in the second half as a whole.

Even though Doncic finished the game with 28 points, he was still not very good from beyond the arc, going just 2-for-8 from deep. In his last two games, he's gone 3-for-18 from long range. Even though Doncic had 11 rebounds, he only had two assists, showing that he still doesn't fully trust his teammates.

That low number of assists shows how little Dallas moved the ball, and it can't play the same way in Game 6, which is a must-win game, as it did on Tuesday.

Phoenix Suns

The Suns reminded Dallas — and the league — why they were the best team during the regular season.

After a close first half, the Suns took control in the third quarter and never looked back. The Mavericks were held to just 6-for-16 shooting and forced 12 turnovers in the third quarter. 

Due to Phoenix's stellar defense, Dallas settled for poor shots and looked helpless on the other end, while Devin Booker and Mikal Bridges continued to cook after halftime. It was exactly what the Suns needed after two poor road performances. A better rotation on defense also restricted Doncic's ability to drive to the rim, effectively killing the Maverick's offensive flow in its entirety. This might be the case again in the upcoming match.
