The top-seeded Phoenix Suns rolled to a 121-114 victory over the Dallas Mavericks in Game 1 of the Western Conference semifinals on Monday night. Deandre Ayton scored 25 points, Devin Booker added 23 for the Suns. On the other hand, Luka Doncic led the Mavericks with 45 points, 12 rebounds, and eight assists.

“I thought Maxi and Luka in that first half kept us afloat,” the Mavericks coach Jason Kidd said, via ESPN. “We could have easily been down 39 at halftime but Maxi and LD were good. LD was good in the second half, too.

“We’ve just got to get someone to join the party.”

Game 2 is on Wednesday in Phoenix.
