The Dallas Mavericks are 0-2 down against the Phoenix Suns in the second round of the playoffs. Suns registered a 129-109 victory in the second game where Chris Paul had another ‘Point God’ night as he scored 28 points with six rebounds and eight assists alongside Devin Booker’s 30.
For the Mavericks, Luka Doncic had another stellar performance as he scored 35 points with five rebounds and seven assists. But unfortunately for Doncic, his teammates couldn’t contribute at a similar level to their performances in the first round.
As the 22-year-old returned to the dressing room, he was seen in a verbal exchange with a Suns fan. Walking back frustratingly, the fan said something to Doncic who stopped and tried confronting the fan. The Mavericks staff pulled him back and stopped him from any further interaction.
