Phoenix Suns PK

Dallas has become one-dimensional as the Mavericks are relying too much on Luka Doncic, who is averaging 40.0 points per game through the first two games of this series. Dallas has failed to cover the number in 23 of the last 31 overall against Phoenix and in 13 of the last 16 played at home against the Suns. Phoenix shot the lights out in Game 2, hitting 64.5% of their shots overall and 52.0% from three-point territory and look for those trends to continue on Friday. Final Score Prediction, Phoenix Suns win and cover ATS 114-110.
