PHX vs DAL Dream11: Two teams who have played at a top level will clash against each other. In this game, the Phoenix Suns host the Dallas Mavericks for the second time in three days. The Suns are clicking right and are on a ten-game win streak while Mavericks have also won most of their games so far. In the last match-up between the two, Suns beat Mavs by 7 points as Luka Doncic didn’t play for Dallas

Phoenix is on fire right now and has steamrolled ten opponents in a row. It is no surprise with a high-yielding backcourt of Devin Booker and Chris Paul, pairing up for both playmaking and scoring. Deandre Ayton is the X-Factor on this team with his ability to provide double-doubles. Meanwhile, at the wing, Jae Crowder and Miles Bridges possess two-way talents. McGee has been huge off the bench while Johnson and Shamet have also chipped in with decent contributions.

Without Doncic in the last game, the offense slowed down and the Mavericks lacked depth. Dallas did a great job of holding the Suns before Phoenix blew them away in the fourth period. Kristaps Porzingis has played some of his most imposing basketball lately while Hardaway and Brunson can also clip 20 points or so. However, despite their sturdy defense, the unit missed Doncic sorely.

Host: Phoenix Suns
Visitors: Dallas Mavericks

Match Timing: 20 November, @ 08:30 AM
Venue: Footprint Center

NBA Projections, Stats & Analysis

Mavericks: Their defense is solid
Mavericks don’t allow the oppositions to score a ton of points and Dorian Finney-Smith and Dwight Powell have done a great job of being anchors on defense. The Mavericks have some issues with offense and don’t put up 110 -120 points regularly. In this last game, without Luka, the team couldn’t even reach the 100 points mark.

Suns: Imposing on both ends
With Ayton in the middle, the Suns are able to overwhelm teams on both ends of the floor. Paul dishes assists at an elite rate, Booker is able to scrap 20-30 points regularly, Bridges and Crowder both can score in double-digits as well. Phoenix has won ten games in a row and that is not a shock considering the team reached the Finals last season. Can they sustain the run against loaded squads though?
