Without Luka Doncic and Maxi Kleber, Dallas was feisty in two losses to Phoenix, leading late in both games. Ultimately, fourth quarter onslaughts by Phoenix handed Dallas their first back to back losses of the season. It’s a shame, as this season Dallas was 6-0 when going into the fourth with a lead, but without Doncic in crunch time, the Suns were just too much to handle.
Jason Kidd said after the loss he was “hopeful” Doncic would be ready to play Sunday, so that will certainly be something to keep an eye on.
After missing two consecutive games, Luka Donu010diu0107 (left knee and left ankle sprains) has been moved to questionable for Sunday’s afternoon tipoff in Los Angeles against the Clippers.
