If the top-seeded Phoenix Suns thought the Dallas Mavericks were going to roll over in their NBA Playoffs Western Conference semifinal series, they were sadly mistaken.

A demonstrative Luka Doncic gritted his teeth and delivered No. 4 Dallas to a 113-86 blowout of Phoenix in Game 6 at American Airlines Center on Thursday night, forcing a deciding seventh game Sunday in the Valley of the Sun.

Doncic piled up 33 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists and a whopping four blocks to silence the Suns, coming off their own dominating win in Game 5. Reggie Bullock added 19 points and seven boards.

Doncic outplayed Suns stars Devin Booker (19 points, three assists) and Chris Paul (13 points, four assists). The Mavs' defense dictated things, forcing Phoenix into a stunning 22 turnovers and sub-40% shooting.

Who will walk away from this wild, West series victorious? FrontPageBets take a look at wagers of note for the finale with a spot in the conference finals in the offing.
