Luka Doncic & Mavericks Crush Suns In Game 7
Luka Doncic matched Phoenix at halftime, and the Mavericks routed them in the final tally, as Dallas torched the Suns 123-90 in an epic Game 7—perhaps for the wrong reasons.
The Suns, one year removed from blowing a 2-0 playoff series lead, did not show up (at home!) for the pivotal game and suffered some serious deja vu.
Phoenix’ Chris Paul and Devin Booker started 0-of-11, while Doncic was 9-of-12. The latter had 27 points at the half—the same amount the Suns had as a team at the break.
The Suns, they of the 64 regular-season wins, trailed by as many as 46 points in the rout.
Doncic finished with 35 points on 12-of-19 shooting and 10 rebounds.
The Mavs will now face the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals, starting Wednesday.
