Mavericks @ Suns in NBA Playoff Game 5
Suns guard Chris Paul was outstanding in his team’s two wins, and unusually ineffective in the Mavericks’ two wins. Paul averaged 23.5 points and 3.5 turnovers in Games 1 and 2, but his seven first-half turnovers in Game 3 and foul trouble in Game 4 helped a resurgent Dallas team knot the series 2-all.
“If you don’t have CP out there,” said Luka Doncic, who led the Mavericks with 26 points in their 111-101 victory Sunday. “It’s for sure tougher on (his) team.”
Paul’s struggles made things harder for the Suns, but they didn’t hand anything to Dallas, which played much better at home than it did on the road. The Mavericks, who gave up an average of 125 points in Phoenix, held the Suns to less than 50 percent shooting in each of the last two games after they had shot 50 percent or better in their first eight playoff games.
“Our defense won us these two games,” Doncic said.
