Dallas Mavericks Betting

The Dallas Mavericks struggled to keep up with the Phoenix Suns after shooting a dismal 38% from the field while also committing 16 turnovers. Luka Doncic delivered his usual numbers of 28 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and two assists while Jalen Brunson followed through with 21 points and seven rebounds. Only Davis Bertans managed to score double-digits outside of Brunson and Doncic while Dorian Finney-Smith only did 8 points. This was a very disappointing performance from the Mavericks as they needed more from Reggie Bullock and Maxi Kleber who only combined for four points.
