NBA Film Room: Closer Look at Chris Paul, Devin Booker Dismantling Dallas Mavs in Suns’ Game 2 Win

4 min read


The Dallas Mavericks face a 2-0 series deficit in the Western Conference Semifinals after losing 129-109 in Game 2 against the Phoenix Suns. With the help of fourth-quarter heroics from Chris Paul and Devin Booker, the Suns pulled away late.

After a step-back 3 from Jalen Brunson at the 11:23 mark of the fourth quarter, the Mavericks trailed the Suns just 89-86. What happened over the remainder of regulation could be described as a dismantling by Phoenix.

Paul scored 14 of his 28 overall points in the final frame to lead the Suns’ offense to 40 points as a unit on a staggering 16-19 (84.2 percent) from the floor and 6-8 (75.0 percent) on 3s. Only the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 of the 2014 NBA Finals produced a higher fourth-quarter field goal percentage (87.5 percent) in the last 25 postseasons.
