Both of these teams knew they were not going to to compete this season and they aren’t in the grand scheme of things it appears that Phoenix is ahead as they have known they did not have the pieces for some time and have been trying to acquire young assets to see what sticks.
Dallas seems to have taken longer to come to that realization so now that they are there they have an interesting mix of future and damaged parts.
Dallas has lost four in a row and even of eight. They are also missing the spark that JJ Barea provides. He is not an elite talent but has that something special at times.
No Barea makes it even easier to give max minutes to Dennis Smith. He is having an awful shooting season as a rookie but you can see how it could be just about getting it out of his system.
Harrison Barnes is averaging about as empty an 18ppg as there is in the league. Sure the team is losing but where are the spectacular athletic plays he should be making.
God bless Dirk. When the shots go up they look like they are going to go in but he could have rode off into the sunset a couple of years ago and still made the Hall of Fame.
Maxi Kleber is from where Dirk is from but he has not had the same impact that Nowitzki had as a rookie. He might be wishful thinking rather than a strategy.
Phoenix is on a losing streak too but at least they are at home. Unfortunately they are not good enough to dominate on their home turf. They just don’t play defense well enough and their offense is spotty. They still have to figure out how they are going to play in terms of winning.
Devin Booker is stud but he is questionable in this spot with a rib injury. There is no obviously replacement and on a team that struggles to score his absence is even more pronounced. Odd stat, in their most recent games only two starter scored in double figures – four off the bench did though.
This is a group that is nearly impossible for handicap and the one sure thing, Booker’s points, are not going to be there in this matchup. It looks like a fade spot but that means backing the Mavs. Phoenix could show some courage and gut this one out even though it is not really their style.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
Phoenix will be the favourite whether Booker plays or not. He is super valuable to his team but perhaps they do not need him to win in this one.
This is likely to be a low scoring game which even though the Suns want to play with tempo will suit them just fine.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
Take the Suns at home. The number is likely to be fair but it could also be a good teaser spot.
