Phoenix Suns (19-27) vs Dallas Mavericks (29-17)
NBA Regular Season, Tuesday, American Airlines Center at 8:30 PM (EST)
The Line: DAL -6 O/U 228
Wavering in form and seeing themselves having to play two games in as many days. When Dallas Mavericks waded into yesterday’s encounter against Oklahoma, everything was pinned up against them, a narrative which made their electric showing all the more special. Not only did they manage to defeat a side which looked to be an extremely tricky proposition for them to get past, but the side pulled off a comprehensive display to showcase the true mettle of their unit. The 107-97 display saw them not only instil in place an intricate defensive showing but rise to the occasion at crucial junctures to drop points at pivotal occasions. It’s a display they’ll be looking to emulate today as well when they take on a way inferior Phoenix Suns outfit. Languishing in 11th place in the Western Conference, this has been a season where nothing has gone Phoenix Suns way with the side coming into today’s encounter in the wake of three defeats in their last five games.
Can the Suns get another win away from home?
The Suns followed up their win over the San Antonio Spurs with a loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in their last game and will try to bounce back from the loss with a win over the Mavericks, which will give them their second win in their last five games. Phoenix has played well offensively, averaging 112.7 points per game. The team is shooting 46 percent from the field and 34 percent from three-point range. They finished with 109 points in their last game and will need a better performance if they want to get past the Mavericks.
