The NBA Playoff series between the Suns and Mavericks will feature some of the most talented perimeter players in the league.
Phoenix guard Chris Paul was stellar in the first round, averaging 22.3 points and 11.3 assists against New Orleans. He had to carry the offense without Devin Booker, who missed three games with a hamstring injury, but the Suns should have both of their backcourt stars available against the Mavericks.
Dallas will enter the Western Conference Semifinals with plenty of confidence after eliminating Utah. The Mavericks advanced despite Luka Doncic sitting out half of the first-round matchup, but he looked very much like an MVP candidate when he returned to action. And don’t forget about Jalen Brunson, who has emerged as a difference-maker this postseason.
