Dallas Mavericks DFS Notes
Luka Doncic went off for 33 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists and four steals in Thursday’s blowout victory in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals. Dallas needed a win, and Doncic delivered one thanks to another near triple-double. The superstar guard has carried Dallas to three victories against one of the NBA’s best teams despite a major talent disparity. He’ll head into Sunday’s Game 7 sporting ridiculous averages of 32.2 points, 9.8 rebounds, 7.5 assists and 2.2 steals through six games.
Phoenix Suns DFS Notes
Deandre Ayton posted 21 points on 10-of-16 shooting and added 11 boards and an assist as the Suns dropped Game 6 to the Mavs on Thursday. Ayton posted his second straight 20-point performance and third double-double in four games, leading the Suns in scoring and rebounds in the ugly loss. It was a brutal night for most Phoenicians, but Ayton was a lone bright spot with another solid showing. He’ll look to keep the positive momentum going in Sunday’s decisive Game 7 back at home.
