Luca Doncic frustrated on drop to locker room after Dallas loss (Twitter)

"A lot of people said there was going to be a defeat here," Dallas coach Jason Kidd said cynically at the conclusion, "They were right."

Many estimated that Phoenix, the team that finished the season with the best balance in the league, would break up Dallas tonight (Sunday through Monday) in Game 7 of the semifinal series, but Luca Doncic and his teammates were the ones who provided an amazing show in Phoenix, defeating the Suns 90: 123 and qualifying For the Western Conference Finals against Golden State.

Dallas star Luka Doncic finished a tremendous evening of 35 points, 10 rebounds and 4 assists in just 30 minutes as he sits on the bench in the fourth quarter and watches with a smile in the final game.

Doncic came up determined and sharp for the game, scoring his first three shots to put his teammates in pace, finishing the first half with 27 points - the amount of points all Phoenix players together scored in the first half.

The first quarter still ended in a clear Dallas 17:27 advantage, but the second quarter was already humiliating for the Suns (10:30), who went down to the break with a 57:27 lag - the biggest ever in the half in Game 7 of the playoffs.

The local crowd in Phoenix whistled contempt for his teammates, who simply could not express themselves under the pressure and class.

It was a surprising sequel to the series, which started with two impressive Phoenix wins that went up to a 0-2 lead, but Dallas recovered great and won four of the next five games, against whoever was considered a serious contender for the championship.

Phoenix, it will be recalled, qualified for the NBA Finals last year, but ended the season painfully humiliatingly.

Where is he now and where is Forzingis.

The Phoenix trio - Devin Booker, Chris Paul and Diandra Eyton - finished the first half with 1 of 15 from the field.

Chris Paul, 37, who dreamed of winning his first championship of his career after qualifying for the finals for the first time last season, scored his first field goal only after Phoenix trailed by 40 points in the third quarter.

Boker scored his first basket even after him.

Phoenix, who finished the regular season with 64 wins, looked shocked the entire game, from which it will be difficult to recover.

The host players often missed (only 37.9 percent from the field), even light shots, lost balls, and collapsed under pressure - in a series that until tonight the home team had won all six games.

As you may recall, even last year Phoenix already led 0: 2 (in the final), losing four games in a row against Milwaukee.

The numbers of Phoenix players are painfully disappointing.

Boker finished as the most prominent scorer among the five players with 11 points on 3 of 14 from the field (0 of 4 from three).

Chris Paul scored only 10, which as mentioned all by the time the game was over.

Diandra Eyton scored 5, Jay Crowder 5. Phoenix, which finished the first quarter with 6 of 23 from the field (26.1 percent), has never won a championship since joining the league in 1968.

Embarrassing disintegration.

Easier than expected.

Spencer Dinwiddie, on the other hand, who joined Dallas from Washington this season, finished with 30 points, 21 of them in the first half.

He and Doncic scored 48 of the Mavericks' incredible 57 points in the first, exceptional half.

Dinvidi scored 7 of 10 from the field and 4 of 5 from the first two quarters.

Doncic finished the game with 12 of 19 from the field, and 6 of 11 from three.

Jaylen Branson scored 24 for the winners, and Dallas advanced to the finals for the first time since the 2011 championship season.

Game number 1 in the series against the Warriors will be on Wednesday night.

At the moment there seems to be a clear favorite, but as mentioned, it is never possible to know.
