*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, Saturday, March 4th. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Sunday March 5th.
Kevin Durant was off the court for over six weeks missing 20 games but is showing very few signs of rust in his return.
Specifically, in two games he’s averaging 21.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, four assists, and 1.5 blocks in 28.9 minutes shooting 68% from the field and 50% from the perimeter.
And, the Suns are 2-0 in those matches albeit against the Hornets and Bulls so this contest should offer a better test of how Phoenix’s bench and overall defense will fare versus a higher ranked squad.
On the negative side, presently, Phoenix ranks 21st for scoring averaging 112.8 points per game while shooting 46.5% from the field and 37.97% from the perimeter ranking 24thand fifth respectively.
Opponents average 110.8 points per game ranking fourth lowest overall while allowing opponents to shoot 46.5% from the field and 35.6% from the perimeter ranking fifth and 14th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Deandre Ayton C (questionable—knee)
- Terrence Ross SG (probable —toe)
- Landry Shamet SG (OUT indefinitely—foot)
It’s a good thing the Mavs beat the 76ers because losing consecutive games after leading them by over 20 points would play havoc with a team’s confidence and have carry over impact.
By winning they can erase some doubt and continue to build their chemistry. That said, this revamped Mavs squad has decisive drop off when the bench enters the game and it would be unwise to rely on scoring 25 deep balls ever game.
To wit, Philly shot a blistering 57.7% from the field and were no slouches from deep (44.4%) but because they attempt fewer 3-balls (12-27) it equated to a 39 point differential as Dallas shot 52.1% (25-48) but attempted 21 more deep balls.
Meanwhile, on defense, the Mavs allow 112.9 points per game which rank 13th. In terms of efficiency, opponents are shooting 48.6% from the field and 35.1% from the perimeter ranking 25th and ninth respectively.
The Mavericks score 113.8 points per game ranking 17th overall. As for their efficiency, they shoot 47.5% from the field and 37.0%.from the perimeter ranking 15th and ninth respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Davis Bertans, PF (probable— calf)

Free Phoenix Suns vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Prediction:
It’s the first time Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant will face each since both demanded trades from the Nets and joined new teams. Now they’re both on clubs that many believe could make deep runs in the West albeit KD’s squad has the better depth and opportunity.
Luka and Kyrie have meshed offensively but the clubs depth and step back defensively has lead to some precarious finishes and based on that fact I’ll take the Suns and the points.
