Five players from Dallas scored double-digits with Spencer Dinwiddie sank five 3-pointers from his 21 points to notch the first regular season victory against Suns since November 29, 2019. The newly acquired Christian Wood also contributed big time with 18 points and nine rebounds, Tim Hardaway Jr. made five 3-points and scored 17 points while Josh Green almost pulled a 100% shooting to score 16 points.

The last time the Mavs and Suns met was on Opening Night as the Phoenix Suns made an impressive comeback from being down by 22 points. Sadly, Phoenix Suns failed to replicate those comebacks and ended with the team ending their 10 game (regular season)  winning streak against Dallas. The Mavericks poured a hot-shooting to drilled 20 3-pointers on 48.8% shooting.

Cameron Payne registered a double-double performance in a losing effort for Suns with 14 points and 10 assists, while Deandre Ayton scored a solid 20 points and 8 rebounds.

Mikal Bridges, Damion Lee, and Landry Shamet all provided 13 points contribution while Josh Okogie added 12 and Devin Booker on a bad shooting night finished with just 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting for the Suns. 

This is Dallas’ second straight blowout after dominating the New York Knicks. Despite Luka putting up another valiant performance of 33 points, it was Josh Green’s 16 points, five assists, and four rebounds that had everyone buzzing around the internet.

“The truth is the kid is really good. And if he continues to keep working, he’s going to make a lot of money. Josh is going to get paid a lot of money. I’m telling you here today. If he continues to work and help with the team, the kid has all the talents to be a superstar. He just has to play,” Dallas Coach Jason Kidd said during a post-game interview.

“I think it’s an opportunity,” Green said. “Confidence comes with opportunity. I’ve been preparing for today since pre-draft. Moments like this are really cool, but I know I’m going to want to continue to build from this.”

It was a fantastic follow-up to their rampage of the Knicks. They improved to 12-11 after beating the current best record holder in the Western Conference, Phoenix Suns who fell to 16-8.
