These Mavericks vs Suns games are highly entertaining and I think we are seeing a budding rivalry here. Both teams have a young core playing similar positions. They matchup against each other well and both teams are gunning for their spotlight in the postseason. If these two teams meet for a seven-game series, it may become one of those classic, hard-fought matchups.
The Phoenix Suns hosted the defending “champion” Los Angeles Lakers last night in their 3rd of 4 preseason contests. The Suns would ultimately come up short, losing 112-107, led by Lebron James and Anthony Davis combining for 21 points with Kyle Kuzma netting 23 points on the night.
The Phoenix Suns have made some rather large moves in a short offseason. Trading fan favorites Kelly Oubre Jr and Ricky Rubio, Signing veteran Jae Crowder and bringing in perennial All-Star Chris Paul. The presence of these moves have already been felt around the league, teams are taking notice.
