Phoenix Suns DFS Notes
Chris Paul hit just 3-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, two rebounds, 10 assists and a steal in Tuesday's 110-80 win over the Mavericks to take a 3-2 lead in the series. Game 6 is in Dallas on Thursday and it should be a blast, and it was surprising to see Paul not have a monster night after fouling out early in Sunday's Game 4. He wasn't needed to come through down the stretch after the Suns racked up a 17-0 run to start the third quarter, but he'll still be looking for his revenge in Dallas on Thursday. If the Mavericks win that game both teams will be back in Phoenix for Sunday's Game 7, which could be magical.
Dallas Mavericks DFS Notes
Luka Doncic hit 10-of-23 shots, two 3-pointers and 6-of-7 free throws for 28 points, 11 rebounds, two assists and three steals in Tuesday's 110-80 loss to the Suns in Game 5. Jalen Brunson chipped in with 21 points, seven rebounds, two assists and a steal on 9-of-17 shooting while the rest of the Mavericks struggled tonight. The Mavericks were only down three points at halftime after leading most the first half, but then were blown out 17-0 to start the second half and were never in the game. Game 6 is in Dallas on Thursday night and everyone expects the Mavs to hold homecourt and take it back to Phoenix for Game 7 on Sunday. Luka is going to go off in Game 6 on Thursday night.
