NBA Preseason: Mavericks beat up overwhelmed Hornets

The Dallas Mavericks have no trouble with overwhelmed Hornets and in the end score more than twice as many points as the opponent. Replacement weakened Boston Celtics lose with the siren, at OKC a rookie is in a good mood.

Phoenix Suns (3-1) – Portland Trail Blazers (0-3) 119:74 (BOXSCORE)

  • The Suns are still in good early shape. Without Chris Paul, but for the first time with Devin Booker, they dominated the game against Portland from the beginning, after only two quarters the lead had grown to 21 points. Booker himself was in a great mood and got 17 points (6/10 FG, 3/6 3FG) in his 18 minutes of action, leading his team.
  • There were also four bankers, who got double-digit scores, as well as Elfrid Payton, who almost scratched a triple-double (8 points, 9 assists, 8 rebounds). Booker & Co. were then through with their working day in time to watch Game 2 of the WNBA Finals on site. Paul then joined his teammates for this.
  • With the Blazers, the entire starting five was at the start, but offensive very little went together. Damian Lillard got 12 points, leading a team that didn’t even crack 30 percent out of the field.
