Open Thread: Phoenix Suns (4-24) vs. Dallas Mavericks (15-11)

New, comments

A rematch from the season opener, once again on the primetime scale.

NBA: Dallas Mavericks at Phoenix Suns Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Probable starters:

Suns - De’Anthony Melton, Mikal Bridges, Josh Jackson, T.J. Warren, Deandre Ayton

Mavericks - Jalen Brunson, Wesley Matthews, Harrison Barnes, Luka Doncic, DeAndre Jordan

  • How will Ayton respond in his second go-around versus Jordan? Last time, Ayton won the first round. We’ll see how he responds on Thursday night.
  • Will Trevor Ariza even play tonight? In San Antonio, Ariza sat out with no injury-related issues. Is a trade for Saturday already complete? If Ariza doesn’t suit up versus Dallas, then the answer is yes.
  • Richaun Holmes continues to be the Suns’ X-factor and emotional leader the past week or so. Will Holmes’ infectious energy continue to rub off on the young core?
