NBA ‘bubble betting’ was a little tough for the 1st game as nobody really knew how each team would return out of the gate. With Dallas and Phoenix each having one contest under their belt, things get a bit easier to break down.
The Mavs returned from the 4-1/2 month pause by not being able to answer the bell to Houston, 149-153 in OT. The Suns took care of a battered Wizards squad 125-112.
Dallas doesn’t have a ton to play for in the bubble as their spot in the postseason is likely slotted at the 7 seed, playing the Clippers in the 1st round. The Mavs would need to make up 2.5 games on Houston for the 6 seed.
The Mavs also won’t fall into the 8th seed which would mean a first round meeting with the Lakers as Dallas holds a 7-game lead over Memphis.
Of course it never hurts to get out and knock off some rust though and that’s just what happened in the electrifying game with Houston. If you’re Dallas you like the 39 points and 16 rebounds from Kristaps Porzingis in the opener.
The Mavs also got yet another triple-double from Luka Doncic who went for 28/13/10 against the Rockets. Tim Hardaway showed the Mavs are more than a 2-man team with 24 points.
Of course there are some things to be concerned about from Dallas, namely the 153 points allowed including 49 to James Harden. Dallas was the 16th ranked scoring defense prior to the shutdown.
Dallas had problems with the fast pace of Houston on Friday as the Rockets are 5th in the league in possessions per game. Phoenix isn’t far behind though ranking 10th.
It should be another run and gun night for the Suns who are really just playing some no-pressure extra basketball. Phoenix is 5 games out of the 8 seed with 7 to go – and they have to jump three teams to get there.
Phoenix is no threat to make the postseason and they looked care free in the 125-112 win over Washington on Friday. Devin Booker should exploit the Dallas SG defense like Harden did as the Phoenix G had 27 in the opener.
The Suns also have a dominant big presence that could give Porzingis fits on the blocks. Deandre Ayton had 24 points and 12 rebounds vs. the Wizards.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Over is 11-5 in Mavs last 16 vs. Pacific
- Suns are 6-13 ATS last 19 overall
- Mavs are 2-9 ATS last 11 meetings
Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
The Suns and Mavs split two games during the regular season with each team winning on the road. Phoenix lost by 7 points the first meeting, but won by 29 in the second as the Mavericks were without Porzingis.
Dallas used a lot of energy on Friday in the back and forth game with Houston. Sunday’s late start will help them in that regard but this still looks like a nice matchup for the relaxed Suns.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Suns +5.5
Booker and Ayton are putting together something to build on next season for the Suns.
***NOTE*** In case you missed it…When the 2020 NBA 16-team playoff field is set, the NBA Playoffs will proceed in a traditional conference-based format with four rounds and best-of-seven series in each round. The 2020 NBA Finals will end no later than Oct. 13.
