The Phoenix Suns host the Dallas Mavericks in Game 7 of the Western Conference Semifinals on Sunday, with both teams all square for the decider.
The Mavericks will need to build on their momentum following their victory in Game 6. Led by superstar Luka Doncic, the Mavericks will need Spencer Dinwiddie, Jalen Brunson and Maxi Kleber to help the team advance to the Conference Finals.
Meanwhile, the Suns will depend on Chris Paul to support the workload with Devin Booker. The Suns were by far the best team in the regular season and hope to go even further than they did last season.
