The Dallas Mavericks have passed the first round of the NBA Playoffs for the first time in more than a decade. However, the size of the Phoenix Suns is too big to start the Western Conference semifinal series. The team around the national player Maxi Kleiber has no chance, but one convinces anyway.
The Dallas Mavericks around NBA player Maxi Clipper started the NBA series with a loss against the Phoenix Suns. At the start of the Western Conference semi-finals, the Texans waived 114:121 at Phoenix. The Mavericks were almost steadily trailing 10 to 15 points behind the tournament favorites and they managed only to create a bit of tension among the Suns fans in the end. Luka Doncic with 45 points and Kleiber with 19 had the best record noted by Dirk Nowitzki, but overall the Mavericks attack wasn’t strong enough for the Suns for long.
The host nation had six players in double digits, led by Dender Eaton with 25 points and Devin Booker with 23 points. In particular, The Suns’ reaction was more effective, with the Arizona team providing a total of 27 assists – the Mavericks had only 16. “We trusted each other and played together,” Eaton told American TV.
The team needs four wins to advance to the conference finals. Next meeting is Thursday evening (4 a.m. CEST) Back in Phoenix, then two games in Dallas. Whoever wins, meets with the Memphis Grizzlies or the Golden State Warriors. In this series, the Warriors lead 1-0.
In the East, the Miami Heat began the semi-final series with a comfortable home victory over the Philadelphia 76ers. At 106:92, Tyler Hero, who scored 25 points as a substitute, was particularly convincing. The 76ers, without basketball star Joel Embiid due to a head injury, were behind for most of the game and were not on a par with the hosts except for one stage right after the break. Besides Herro, Bam Adebayo was in good shape on the Heat, contributing 24 points and 12 rebounds. The 76er got the most points from Tobias Harris (27).
