Beverley picked the Mavericks to beat the odds and win game 7 down the road. The Minnesota Timberwolves The Guardian cited Luka Doncic’s experience in Game 7s, and the lack of Suns.
“Must go with Luka. Beverley said. “He played Game 7. I don’t know, other than (Chris Paul), I don’t think anyone on the (Suns) roster played in Game 7, other than JaVale McGee, but no one is sure in the starting lineup. . . ”
Beverley is heavily experienced in the Game of 7 do-or-die, and he believes Dallas has more to offer than the Suns. A win for the Mavericks would certainly go against how the rest of the streak has gone, as the hosts have won each of their six games so far.
Doncic and Beverley have previously been playoff opponents more than once, and things got hot sometimes. Even so, Beverley clearly respects Doncic as an opponent, and thinks the 7th match experience will be extremely important.
