Suns vs Mavericks: prediction and bets on 2021-22 NBA, May 15, 2022

Match info

The top-seed Phoenix Suns and the Dallas Mavericks (No.4) are to meet in the decisive Game 7 of their NBA Playoffs – Western Conference semi-final series on Sunday, May 15, at the Footprint Center in Phoenix, Arizona. The game will begin at 1 p.m. local time (11 p.m. Moscow time).

Meeting statistics

Everything boils down to a single game. In Game 7 of the Western Conference semi-finals, the Phoenix Suns take on the Dallas Mavericks. It’s win or go-home for both teams, who have given their all in the previous 6 encounters, delighting the crowd each time they were on the court. So far, each team has won 3 games in their own arena, and the Suns should be safe at the Footprint Center based on that history. However, it’s not the case in the NBA. The Mavs are coming to win, on a high after their recent victory, and without the pressure that the hosts certainly do have.

The current form of the Suns

The Phoenix Suns were defeated in Texas in Game 6. They shot 39.7% from the field, made only 6 three-pointers, and had 22 turnovers. Chris Paul and Devin Booker combined for 13 turnovers, and the Suns can’t expect anything good when their two greatest players have such dismal numbers. ’D-Book’ had 19 points and 8 rebounds on 6-for-17 shooting. Paul had 13 points and only 4 assists. These two are Monty Williams’ engines, and when they perform poorly, the entire team suffers.

Only Deandre Ayton could match the Mavs’ intensity on the court. In 30 minutes on the court, the former No. 1 pick had 21 points and 11 rebounds. All of the other players were unworthy of consideration. The bench combined for 17 points, and they, too, were powerless to stop the horror in the last game.

The current form of the Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks blew out the No. 1 seed in the West, 113-86, in Game 6. This was one of the Suns’ most difficult losses in the last year or so, and the visitors looked impressive. The Mavs showed excellent ball-handling, with only 6 turnovers, including one by the starting lineup of Luka Dončić. He played 35 minutes and finished with 33 points, 11 rebounds, 8 assists, and 4 steals, shredding the Suns’ backcourt.

Reggie Bullock awoke, finishing with 19 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 made three-pointers, while Jalen Brunson had 18 points. Spencer Dinwiddie’s 15 points came on 5 three-pointers off the bench, and his impact was seen right away.

Head-to-head encounters

We said earlier in the text that both teams took advantage of their home-court advantage to the fullest, winning 3 games each. The Suns won the first 2 games of the series, 121-114 and 129-109, respectively. The Mavs replied by winning the next 2 games, 103-94 and 111-101, both in Texas. After that, Phoenix won Game 5 by a score of 110-80 but received instant retaliation last night.

Match analytics

You’ve undoubtedly figured out by now that the home-court advantage is the difference-maker in this series. Since the beginning of the series, there hasn’t been a single close game, owing to the home crowd and all it entails. That’s why we believe the Suns will defeat the Mavericks on Sunday and punch their ticket to the Western Conference Finals. We saw them win by 20 or more points twice in the previous three games at Footprint Center.

So, bet on the Suns to win with a handicap (-6) for which one of the top bookmakers for NBA betting, Everygame, offered an odd of 1.90.
