NBA Playoffs: Dallas Mavericks with horror break

The Phoenix Suns came back with a dominant performance, winning Game 5 against the Dallas Mavericks. In the 110: 80 victory, all dams in the third quarter break.

After an even first half, the Suns finally got their muscles tensed after the break. Devin Booker was leading with 28 points (11/19 FG), support came from all sides. Chris Paul remained very unobtrusive as a goal scorer (7 points), but distributed 10 assists. Deandre Ayton had 20 points and 9 rebounds.

Luka Doncic was the top scorer for the Mavericks with 28 points (10/23) plus 10 rebounds. With the exception of Jalen Brunson (21, 9/16) he received little support, only Davis Bertans (10, 3/4 3FG) ended up on double digits. Maxi Kleber also remained below its potential (4, 1/5 FG, 6 rebounds).

The Mavs took their excellent shot from Game 4 and hit three of their first five three-pointers, Finney-Smith having two of them. Doncic in the post did it 15: 9, on the other hand, Booker took the matter into his own hands early as usual. The All-Star lowered a series of heavy midfield shots to 12 points in the first quarter, with Doncic at 11. 26:23 Dallas after 12 minutes.
