Wheels Off The Wagon: Sloppy Dallas Mavs Blown Out By Phoenix Suns in Game 5

Heading into Game 5 against the Phoenix Suns in a 2-2 series, the Dallas Mavericks knew they’d have to bring their best effort yet in order to steal a game on the road.

Despite getting off to near-perfect start in the first quarter, the wheels started to fall off the wagon for the Mavs towards the end of the first half, and they never recovered as the Suns went on to capture a 110-80 win and a 3-2 series leads. Dallas will face elimination at home on Thursday in Game 6.

There has been a lot of talk from coach Jason Kidd this postseason about Mavericks aside from Luka Doncic “joining the party.” That happened in Games 3 and 4, as the Mavs got well-balanced efforts all around. However, Dallas wasn’t able to translate that home success to the road.
