Dallas Mavericks vs Phoenix Suns 5/2/2022 Betting Odds
Dallas Mavericks Betting
The Dallas Mavericks are glad to survive the Utah Jazz and move on to the next round of the playoffs to test themselves against the league-best Phoenix Suns. Luka Doncic will be suited up, healthy to go in this series and he will get help from emerging guard Jalen Brunson who carried the team in the last series. Spencer Dinwiddie has been a factor and he came off the bench giving the Jazz problems during the closeout game. This team’s big men need to step up and find a way to be significant in order for the Mavericks to keep up and fill in their weaknesses in the paint.
Players to watch: Luka Doncic PG 3 GP 3 GS 36.3 MIN 29 PTS 0 OR 10.7 DR 10.7 REB 5.7 AST 1.3 STL 1 BLK 4 TO 3.3 PF 1.4 AST/TO 21.35 PER
Jalen Brunson PG 6 GP 6 GS 38 MIN 27.8 PTS 0.8 OR 4 DR 4.8 REB 4.2 AST 0.8 STL 0 BLK 0.7 TO 1.7 PF 6.3 AST/TO 20.63 PER
Spencer Dinwiddie PG 6 GP 3 GS 33.3 MIN 15.3 PTS 1 OR 2.3 DR 3.3 REB 4.3 AST 1.2 STL 0.2 BLK 2.2 TO 4 PF 2 AST/TO 9.38 PER.
Phoenix Suns Betting
The Phoenix Suns are just going to be tough to beat especially how Chris Paul continues to age like wine. The “Point God” showed why he is still the prime point guard in the league and why his name is among the best in basketball history. DeAndre Ayton has not had much competition in the opposing team and if he establishes his presence in the paint, this could mean an easy series for the Suns. Devin Booker will also need to be his scoring self to help give the team an extra dimension in the offense. The Suns are one of the deepest teams in the league and expect them to maximize that edge.
Players to Watch: Devin Booker SG 3 GP 3 GS 32.7 MIN 23 PTS 0.3 OR 3.3 DR 3.7 REB 4 AST 0.3 STL 0 BLK 1.7 TO 1.7 PF 2.4 AST/TO 17.89 PER
Chris Paul PG 6 GP 6 GS 36.8 MIN 22.3 PTS 0.7 OR 3.7 DR 4.3 REB 11.3 AST 1.8 STL 0.2 BLK 1.5 TO 2.5 PF 7.6 AST/TO 24.44 PER
Deandre Ayton C 6 GP 6 GS 35 MIN 20.5 PTS 2.2 OR 7.7 DR 9.8 REB 2.5 AST 0.7 STL 1.2 BLK 1.2 TO 3.2 PF 2.1 AST/TO 21.28 PER.
