The Mavs-Phoenix series is tied up. As the team heads back to Phoenix, fans are riding the wave and optimistic that the Dallas Mavericks could do something that hasn’t been done in years.
Luka Doncic scored 26 points and the Dallas Mavericks took advantage of foul trouble for Chris Paul to beat the Phoenix Suns 111-101 on Sunday, evening in the Western Conference semifinal series at 2-2.
Paul was out of Game 4 early in the fourth quarter, the period when he often dominated the Mavericks during an 11-game winning streak that ended with consecutive home victories for Dallas.
Those who remember the excitement of winning the NBA Championship in 2011 understand what this momentum does for the city.
Fans are going into the next game fueled by the high of Sunday's win. Game 5 is Tuesday night in Phoenix.
