Nick Wright, a commentator for Fox Sports, has angered Phoenix Suns supporters with his analysis of the Western Conference NBA Playoffs matchup between the Suns and Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks.
After Phoenix’s huge win against Dallas in Game 5 on Tuesday night, he still hasn’t changed his mind about the Suns or the series.
Dallas Mavericks Will Beat Unlikable Phoenix Suns in Seven Games
Wright, who has predicted that the Mavericks will defeat the Suns in this series, made the prediction again on his FS1 show Wednesday morning, labelling the Suns “quite the unlikable bunch” in the process.
What he actually stated was: “There will be seven rounds of this. It’s going to take seven games, but the Mavericks will prevail. I’m not concerned; rather, I’m infuriated, and we’ll get into why in a second. These Suns have evolved into a very unlikeable group. They’ll come to regret making fun of my grown son (Doncic) from Slovenia, who is quite large for his country.”
The Phoenix Suns are trying to top their run to the NBA Finals from last year by going one step further, and they have been the best team in the league all season. However, with just one game left in the season, the Suns’ chances of reaching the NBA Finals are fading away.
The second round has come for Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks. Although Jason Kidd has helped the Mavericks improve, they are still one win short of the Western Conference Finals and the ultimate “we have arrived” feeling.
Sunday night is Game 7 between the Mavericks and the Suns (8 pm on TNT). Whoever wins will move on to take on Stephen Curry and the Warriors, while the loser will have to figure out what comes next. In a series that has been decided at home, here are three factors to keep an eye on that could make a difference tonight.
