Dallas Mavericks Stun the Phoenix Suns in Game 7 Upset – Derna Chrichten Channel

The Phoenix Suns dominated the N.B.A. regular season and set a franchise record for wins with one goal in mind: return to the N.B.A. finals for a second straight year — and win the championship this time.

They won’t even get a chance to try.

The top-seeded Suns lost to the No. 4-seeded Dallas Mavericks, 123-90, in Game 7 of the teams’ Western Conference semifinals series on Sunday in Phoenix. Dallas, which led by 30 points at halftime, will face Golden State on Wednesday in San Francisco in Game 1 of the conference finals.

Sunday’s game between the Suns and Mavericks was the first time the road team won a game in the series. The Suns had beaten the Mavericks by an average of 19 points per game in the previous three games in Phoenix.

For Phoenix, the loss ended a season that began ominously when the N.B.A. started investigating Robert Sarver, the owner of the team and the W.N.B.A.’s Phoenix Mercury, after current and former employees accused him of racist, sexist and otherwise inappropriate behavior. The results of the investigation have not yet been announced.
