The Mavericks finally got themselves back in the win column, but the Suns are still searching when the two teams meet on Sunday.
Dallas has won 2 of 3 as they have defeated the Lakers and Nets, with a loss to Golden State mixed in between. The Suns have dropped 3 straight games as their defense has completely disappeared lately.
The Suns are certainly one team that can’t wait for the calendar to flip to February.
The wrap up a horrid month of January with this one against the Mavericks as they try to salvage what would be a 3 win month.
Phoenix two wins have come against Charlotte and Atlanta, both of which came at home. In the midst of a 4 game road trip to cap the month off, they’ve dropped the first 3 to the 76ers, Cavaliers, and Knicks.
Last time out, the Suns buried themselves with an 18 point deficit at half time as they shot just 41% from the field and had only 7 three pointers. Devin Booker was the only starter in double figures as he put in 21 points to go along with 3 assists.
Dallas had an average month of January as they didn’t allow losses to string together and they put modest winning streaks up.
The Mavs have handled business against the sub .500 opponents as they’ve taken down the Lakers and Nets, winning 2 of their last 3. Dallas had no problem with Brooklyn, using a big first half to really put them away.
While the two regulars in Chandler Parsons and Dirk Nowitzki have been on fire lately, it’s been Zaza Pachulia who’s been ignitor this season. The F put up a double-double in the win, going for 16 points and 12 rebounds while dishing out 3 assists.
On the season, Pachulia has averaged 10.5 points and 10.8 rebounds as he’s been a double-double machine.
These two teams met in Dallas back on 12/14 as the Mavs shot nearly 50% and handle the suns by 10.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Suns have had a very forgettable month.
They simply don’t have enough tools to keep up with the Mavs here defensively. Look for Dallas to expose that and dominate the paint en route to a big, lopsided win.
