Suns inch closer to West finals with Game 5 rout of Mavs

MIAMI – Top seed Phoenix moved to within one win of the NBA Western Conference finals on Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time) after a 110-80 blowout win against the Dallas Mavericks.

Dallas had roared back into contention to level the series at 2-2 on Sunday after dropping games one and two in Phoenix last week.

But normal service resumed as Phoenix reasserted themselves emphatically in front of their home fans in Game Five.

Devin Booker led the Phoenix scoring with 28 points while Deandre Ayton had 20 points with nine rebounds.

Dallas had led by as much as eight points during an even first half that saw the Suns lead by three at the break.

But Phoenix erupted in the third quarter, outscoring Dallas by 33-14 to take a stranglehold on the contest.

Luka Doncic led the Mavericks scorers with 28 points and 11 rebounds with Jalen Brunson providing support with 21 points.
