Phoenix vs Dallas: prediction for the NBA match

Will Suns secure a second victory in the series? The answer is in our prediction.

Phoenix Suns

After the return of Devin Booker, Phoenix started to play much better on the offensive end. Suns managed to edge New Orleans in the first series and won the first match against Dallas. Monty Williams' men secured a 121:114 victory at Arizona. 

Devin Booker, Chris Paul and DeAndre Ayton inspired Suns' victory that night. Mavericks were unable to stop these players. Monty Williams will probably expect another top-quality performance from the leaders. 

Dallas Mavericks

In the first play-off round Dallas managed to eliminate Utah out of the playoffs. Jazzmen fought hard, but ended up beaten by the Mavericks. Jason Kidd's men won the series (4:2). Now Texas team is facing a much stronger opponent. 

In the first match of the series Luka Doncic put up a wonderful performance for Dallas. In 44 minutes on the floor Slovenian player scored 45 points, collected 12 rebounds and gave eight assists. But his effort was not enough for team's success.

Prediction

First match of the season was extremely high-scoring, thanks to a wonderful performance by Luka Doncic. But everything will probably be different in the second match. Even such a brilliant player like Doncic can't retain such a high level of performance for long, so we are expecting slightly less impressive game from him. Mavericks are considered a defensive team, so we offer to place a bet on total under. 

Our prediction - total under 218 points

Prediction: Total under 218

Dallas lost the first match of the series by only seven points. We are not expecting a better performance from the Mavericks in the second match. Texas team depends on Luka Doncic. If he will have a bad day, team's offensive game will fall apart. 

Our second bet is on Handicap (+4) points for Phoenix

Prediction: Handicap (-4) on Phoenix
