The Suns stayed perfect in the bubble, as they beat the Mavericks 128-102.

Phoenix got contributions up and down their lineup, with Devin Booker leading the way with 27 points. The Suns are 8-0 since the NBA season restarted.

Kristaps Porzingis didn’t play for Dallas and Luka Doncic only played in the first half. The Mavericks are gearing up for a first round postseason series against the Clippers. Boban Marjonavic got extended playing time and took advantage of it, finishing with 18 points and 20 rebounds.

Phoenix had 34 assists, while Dallas finished with 17. The Suns led by 19 at the half and never looked back.

The win keeps Phoenix’s playoff hopes alive as they fight for the eight seed in the Western Conference. If they get it, they will play LeBron James and the Lakers in the first round of the postseason.

The Suns are attempting to end a playoff drought, which dates back to 2010.
