Fact Checked by Young Ruth

The Phoenix Suns felt they had a chance to take control as they began the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s Game 2 in their NBA Playoff series against the Dallas Mavericks.

The Suns had a strong final quarter performance, outscoring the Mavs 40-26. This led to a 129-109 victory for the Suns, giving them a 2-0 series lead over Dallas.

Thus, the Suns are favored to win the 2022 NBA Finals on four newly launched Arizona sports betting applications.

Many NBA betting sites are now recognizing Suns guard Devin Booker’s outstanding performance and have listed him as the frontrunner to win the NBA Finals MVP award.

Booker delivered an exceptional performance on Wednesday, scoring 30 points on 11-of-19 shooting while adding four rebounds and four assists to lead the team.

Former Kentucky Wildcat and Chris Paul, playing together in the backcourt, teamed up to lead a dominant surge against the Mavericks in the final quarter of the game, resulting in a 33-9 run for their team.

In total, Paul scored 28 points, 14 of which were in the fourth quarter. Additionally, he contributed eight assists and six rebounds.

The third game of the Suns-Mavericks series will be held in Dallas at 6:30 p.m. Arizona time on Friday, and will be broadcasted on ESPN.
