Dallas Mavericks vs Phoenix Suns: News
ABOUT MAVERICKS (15-11):
Luka Doncic was the best rookie in the NBA in the first third of the season. His full game presented again by registering 24 points, 10 rebounds and six assists in Atlanta. Veteran Dirk Nowitzki (ankle) is about to make his début this season, but coach Rick Carlisle would only say he’s “getting close”. J.J. Barea scored 18 points in 16 minutes against the Hawks before leaving with a sprained left ankle and looks doubtful for Thursday’s game.
ABOUT SUNS (4-24):
Phoenix Suns used alignments of patches with Booker and other players, and coach Igor Kokoskov said juggling was a major problem. “Extremely difficult, you can not even imagine it,” Kokoskov told reporters. “When you train, you feel like you’re in the summer league because you have substitutes, we have a group of young players, so it’s extremely difficult.” Deandre Ayton is one of the players who fight against Doncic for the rookie of the year award since the first pick in the repêchage registered 16 double-doubles with an average of 15.8 points and 10.2 rebounds.
