What you need to know about the Mavericks
The Mavericks beat Oklahoma City 107-97 on Monday. It was another big night for Luka Doncic, who shot 5-for-12 from beyond the arc and finished with a double-double on 29 points and 11 rebounds along with five dimes. Kristaps Porzingis had 14 points and 10 rebounds. Porzingis is questionable for tonight because of left knee injury recovery.
Willie Cauley-Stein is expected to make his Dallas debut tonight after being acquired in a weekend trade with the Warriors. The pickup from Golden State became necessary for added depth after Dwight Powell was lost for the season with an Achilles injury.
Dallas scored a 120-113 victory over Phoenix on Nov. 29 as Doncic tied a career high with 42 points, one of his four games with at least 40 points this season.
What you need to know about the Suns
In a sloppy game that saw the teams combine for 42 turnovers, Memphis took down Phoenix 114-109 on Sunday. One thing holding Phoenix back was the mediocre play of Ricky Rubio; he finished with only five points on 1-for-10 shooting in his 30 minutes on the court. Devin Booker led the Suns with 36 points, Kelly Oubre Jr. added 27 points, and Deandre Ayton finished with 17 points and 15 rebounds. The Suns tied the game twice late but the Grizzlies sealed their win by scoring the game's final four points on free throws.
