Luka Doncic, Dallas Mavs Face Phoenix Suns With Spot in West Finals At Stake

Fresh off their first playoff series win in more than a decade after dispatching the Utah Jazz, the Dallas Mavericks get the top-seeded Phoenix Suns as the reward. The league’s best team by far during the regular season also advanced Thursday night by beating the New Orleans Pelicans on the road.

The best-of-seven Western Conference semifinals open Monday night with the first of two games in Phoenix. The Suns are 2-1 in the playoffs at home thus far, while the Mavs are 2-1 on the road.

Phoenix went 64-18 during the season, easily besting the rest of the league. The closest challenger was the West second-seeded Memphis Grizzlies, who won 56 games and a currently leading their first-round series with the Minnesota Timberwolves 3-2.
