DAL vs PHX Dream11: The Dallas Mavericks are back home following their 97-107 road win over Oklahoma City Thunder as they play host to Phoenix Suns in the all-Western Conference matchup in the NBA at American Airlines Center, on Wednesday morning (IST).
Dallas may not be playing with the same consistency they showed earlier in the season, but they are beyond expectations this season, with their lofty 5th position in the West is not something many predicted at the start of the season. They are 29-17 in the season, and 13-11 in home games this season heading into this game.
Phoenix Suns have also exceeded expectations but their current form is a cause for worry for the fans, as they have won only 8 times in the last 20 games. They have slipped down the table as a result and now find themselves outside the playoffs positions, down at 11th in the West, with three games separating them from the top-8.
