Phoenix Suns DFS Notes

Chris Paul hit 11-of-16 shots, a 3-pointer and 5-of-5 free throws for 28 points, six rebounds, eight assists and a steal in Wednesday's Game 2 129-109 win over the Mavericks to take a 2-0 lead in the series. CP3 scored nine of Phoenix's first 14 points in the fourth quarter and hit nine straight second-half shots before finally missing one when the game was out of reach. He's old and his knees are shaky but he's the Point God and pulled out all the stops tonight. Paul and Devin Booker combined to hit 22-of-35 shots tonight, along with six triples, 10 rebounds and 12 assists with their 11th straight win against Dallas. The Mavericks will have to find a way to win two at home this weekend, or this series is over.

Dallas Mavericks DFS Notes

Jalen Brunson hit just 3-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal in 28 minutes of Wednesday's Game 2 129-109 loss to the Suns. Brunson hit 6-of-16 shots for 13 points in Game 1 and is now averaging just 11 points on 9-of-28 shooting in the first two games of this series. Spencer Dinwiddie hit just 3-of-10 shots for 11 points tonight and these two are the X-factors for the Mavericks. Brunson hadn't scored fewer than 23 points in his first six playoff games and the Mavs will have to find a way to get him involved in Dallas on Saturday if they're going to bounce back in this series.
