Dallas Mavericks at Phoenix Suns, 10 pm Eastern

The Pick: Phoenix -250, bet $37.50 to win $15; Phoenix -5.5 (-115), bet $11.50 to win $10

So, this series is tied 2-2 when Phoenix thought it would have an easier time of it. So, future Hall of Famer Chris Paul only played 23 minutes in Game 4 due to foul trouble, fouling out with miles to go in the second half, with several of those fouls being, er, “soft.” So Chris Paul’s family was verbally abused and even physically touched (the full story is yet to be heard) by some Dallas fan during that Game 4 on Sunday. Hm. Yeah, I’m going to say all of those facts are motivators for the Suns tonight. Phoenix is now in a series, one they didn’t expect to be in. I didn’t expect them to be in it either, but while I now think Dallas is better than I thought, I still think the Suns are the better team. Sunday was a weird game altogether. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say Chris Paul will have a good game tonight.
