It seems incredible, but within the chaos, there is still room for the predictable in the NBA. After a sixth duel that seemed to start evenly —that’s how it was until shortly before the break—, the tone of the tie ended up prevailing this morning in Dallas and the local Mavericks went over the visiting Phoenix Suns to force the game seven of the series in the Western Conference semifinals (113-86). It doesn’t matter how the teams arrive. The dynamics, the sensations or the differences that have been established in the last meeting do not matter. So far, every matchup in the series has fallen to the home side by an average of 11 points.
