The Suns have gone 39-13 against Western Conference opponents. Phoenix ranks eighth in the NBA allowing just 107.3 points per game while holding opponents to 44.4% shooting.

Dallas are 0-10 SU in their last 10 games against Phoenix.
Phoenix are 7-2 SU in their last 9 games at home.
Phoenix are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games when playing at home against Dallas.
The Suns will get here with a lot of confidence after winning in Game 1. They're winning the 77% of the time this season and have won their last 6 games playing at home vs Dallas. The Mavs will have to make some adjustments and they're going to need to help a lot more to Doncic if they want to beat the Suns. I think the Suns will be too much again for the Mavs.
PICK: Suns -6 (-110)
