Delonte West who scored 25 in the game led the Mavericks. Brendan Hayward led all with 8 rebounds while Dallas’ assist leader was Beaubois. Dallas scored over 30 points in 3 of the games 4 quarters including a whopping 35-point 2nd quarter. Carter also added 21 points for Dallas, which was key to the victory. The win brings Dallas’ overall record to 14-8 on the year.
Marcin Gortat led Phoenix in both points and rebounds. The scoring was quite low as he scored 17, but did have 10 rebounds on the game. The double-double was about all the Suns had to show in the game. They scored over 25 in just the fourth quarter of the ballgame, as they were able to get some garbage buckets. The Suns continue to slide as they are just 7-13 on the year and are a mere 4-6 playing in their own arena. They simply have not been the team they have been in the past and now only have glimpses of greatness that appear from time to time.
Both teams will now have Tuesday off as they look forward, but in two different directions, into the rest of the season.
