Market Report for Sunday, May 8th

Phoenix Suns (-1.5, 215) at Dallas Mavericks

Game 4: Suns lead 2-1

After a massive win on Friday night to cut the series deficit in half the onus is on Dallas’ defense to turn in another incredible performance tonight. The Mavericks held the Suns to 1.068 points per possession, forced turnovers on 18.2% of their possessions and limited Chris Paul and Devin Booker to a combined 30 points. The biggest factor was cutting off the insane shot making from mid-range, and Dallas did so. Phoenix went 10-of-31 on all mid-range attempts on Friday night, nowhere near the mind-bending 55.3% they shot in the first two games of the series. If the Mavericks can once again make life difficult from that area of the floor then they can certainly replicate their defensive performance from Friday night, but the offense needs to continue to provide support for Luka Doncic as well.
