Will Fatigue Matter for Either Team?
Both the Suns and Mavericks are coming off Friday night games that required maximum efforts. The Suns played catch-up for essentially the entire game. Dallas fell by one in overtime to Toronto.
Such performances usually take their toll, but Phoenix’s forced reliance on bench production last night could pay off doubly tonight. Only Goran Dragic played heavy minutes 40 at Denver, while Eric Bledsoe and Markieff Morris were the only other Suns to log at least – and exactly – 30.
If Phoenix can get out in transition, the Mavericks could wear sooner than later.
