The Suns are hoping Devin Booker might be back between Christmas and the New Year.
At least the Suns finally won a game without their best player. Phoenix won at Minnesota over the weekend by two points.
Dragan Bender broke out for a team-high 17 points and Isiah Canaan came off the bench to score 15 points in in 27 minutes on a perfect eight out of eight from the free throw line.
Rookie first-round pick Josh Jackson scored 13 points on four out of nine from the field. Jackson has put up some decent number but it’s only because he’s been a main cog in the Suns’ rotation right from the start.
He’s shooting 37 percent from the field and 22 percent from three.
Dallas has had a heck of a schedule over the last two weeks. The Mavs started on the road at Boston, Milwaukee and Minnesota.
Then they beat the Spurs at home in Kawhi Leonard’s debut and have lost the last two since then, at Golden State and then at San Antonio.
So 1–5 isn’t so bad during that stretch, especially without starting rookie point guard Dennis Smith Jr. Rick Carlisle is hopeful Smith will return tonight for the first easy opponent for the Mavericks in some good time. DSJ is averaging 15/4/4.
Meanwhile, Seth Curry is still a ways away from returning. He hasn’t played since injuring his leg in the preseason. At first, it looked like it might only be a few weeks but the injury has taken longer to heal that originally expected.
Dirk Nowitzki has also said that he wants to play one more season.
He’ll be 40 in June and is still shooting nearly 43 percent from three. Somebody will pick Dirk up for one more season if Dallas wants to move on.
