Can the Dallas Mavericks limit Devin Booker and the Suns in Game 7?

Expect head coach Jason Kidd and the Mavs to keep up the aggression on Booker in Game 7. They will continue to trap him and force the Suns' role players to make plays. Dallas will be flying around the floor on the defensive end and looking to keep a lid on Phoenix’s high-powered offense.

Booker is the best first-quarter scorer in the NBA, and making tough shots is what star players do. Expect the three-time All-Star to make a few difficult attempts early on Sunday, and the Phoenix crowd will provide their star with plenty of energy. Book will play better in Game 7, but forcing him to make tough shots should be the goal for Dallas.

The Mavericks are going to try to force Deandre Ayton, Mikal Bridges, and the rest of the Suns' role players to defeat them in Game 7. They are going to keep trapping Devin Booker and going at Chris Paul on the defensive end of the floor. Can the Suns' supporting pieces step up? Will Phoenix get superstar performances from their backcourt duo?
