Suns Slight Arizona Betting Favorites to Close Out Dallas in Game 6
Fact Checked by Young Ruth

Phoenix’s season could have changed trajectory during the third quarter of their commanding 110-80 win over Dallas in Game 5 on Tuesday.

Until then, the Suns had been having difficulties on offense, but they were able to outscore the Mavericks 33-14, effectively quashing any hopes of a Dallas win in the crucial seventh game of the series.

During this quarter, Suns guard Devin Booker stood out by scoring 12 points out of his team-leading 28 points and by assisting forward Deandre Ayton in creating open shot opportunities near the basket.

After a convincing win, Phoenix is now ahead in the series 3-2, gearing up for their next game against the Mavericks in Dallas on Thursday night.

The Suns secured their win thanks to a solid defensive effort that held the Mavericks to a 40% shooting percentage and forced 16 turnovers, while committing just 12 turnovers themselves.

Monty Williams, the coach of the Phoenix Suns who recently won the NBA’s Coach of the Year award, praised his team for their united effort.

Williams emphasized that tonight’s defense is crucial to the success of our program.

The Suns are set to play against the Mavericks in Dallas at 6:30 p.m. Arizona time on Thursday, with the game being broadcast on ESPN.
