Spencer Dinwiddie and Luka Doncic

The Dallas Mavericks have managed to push the No. 1 seeded Phoenix Suns to seven games, and there's no doubt that this is a fantastic outcome for them. There's no doubt that Game 7s are often unpredictable, and any team could end up taking it.

Generally, the team with the best player tends to win Game 7s. That is the reason that Spencer Dinwiddie is confident in the team's chances in Game 7, pointing out that the Dallas Mavericks have the best player in the series in Luka Doncic. Dwain Price of Mavs.com relayed the news:

Guard Spencer Dinwiddie has never played in a Game 7, but said he’s knowledgeable to know: “These are the moments you live for. Obviously, Phoenix was the best team in the regular season (with a 64-18 record).”

“Obviously they’re at home, hostile environment. But you know they also say Game 7 typically goes to the best player, and I believe we have that in this series. It’s going to be an exciting clash of styles.”

That “best player” Dinwiddie is referring to is Mavs superstar point guard Luka Doncic, who is averaging 32.2 points in this series and has given the Suns fits. If the Mavs’ supporting cast can hold their own, the Mavs will be able to pull off the upset of all upsets and dethrone the defending Western Conference champions.

The Mavs know they can effectively play in Phoenix. They just have to do it for a full four quarters.

It remains to be seen if the Dallas Mavericks will in fact be able to pull off an upset. Beating the best regular-season team in the NBA on their home court isn't an easy task, but if anyone can do it, it's a superstar like Luka Doncic. There have definitely been some people such as Patrick Beverley, that picked the Mavericks to win the game and thus the series.

All Game 7s are generally entertaining basketball, and this game between the Suns and the Mavericks won't be any different. Hopefully, we see both teams put out their best performances, and we'll see who ends up coming out on top.
