The Mavericks Skewer the Suns

The Mavericks put on a show Monday night in the Valley of the Sun winning 122-99. Even though Steve Nash was out with a bruised thigh, the Suns manage to pull it within 3 in the beginning of the second quarter. However the rest of the night belonged to Dallas as they found a rhythm late in the third. From Vince Carter’s behind the back basket to Delante West’s buzzer beaters, the Mavs are starting to finally seem comfortable with each other on the court. Mavericks front man Dirk Nowitzki contributed only 10 points in his second game back but his teammates took up the slack with three starters scoring 20+ points. It is still early in the season but with games like this the Mavericks have potential to show the country why they’re still the champions.
