Ja Morant's Bold Tweet About The Suns During Game 7

The Dallas Mavericks abruptly ended the Phoenix Suns' historic season with a 123-90 stunner in Sunday's Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals before a shattered sellout crowd of 17,071 at Footprint Center.. The top-seeded Suns trailed by 30 at the half, 57-27, as Luka Doncic matched them with 27 points and Spencer Dinwiddie scored 21 off the bench in the first half.

Doncic finished with 35 points and 10 rebounds while Dinwiddie dropped a playoff career-high 30.Trailing by as many 46 points for the game and losing wire to wire, Phoenix shot an atrocious 24.4% from the field in the first half, going 3-of-14 from 3. Devin Booker didn't make a field goal until five minutes left in the third quarter as he finished with just 11 points on 3-of-14 shooting while Chris Paul only scored 10

Deandre Ayton took just five shots in scoring five points and reportedly got into with Monty Williams. When asked why Ayton only played 17 minutes, Williams said, "it's internal." Each team protected homecourt through six games, but the fourth-seeded Mavs broke through Sunday in a completely dominant way. Dallas will now face third-seeded Golden State in the Western Conference finals that begin Wednesday in San Francisco.

The Mavs went 3-1 versus the Warriors in the regular season. The Suns entered this season on a mission to return to the NBA Finals and finish what they started after losing to the Milwaukee Bucks in six games They won a franchise-best 64 games in having the NBA's top record this season and earning the top overall seed in the postseason.

Phoenix needed six games in the first round to eliminate eighth-seeded New Orleans, the only team in the playoffs with a losing record. The Suns then opened the conference semifinals with a 2-0 lead on the Mavericks after winning Game 2 by 20. However, Dallas won Game 3 and Game 4 at home to even the series.

The Suns came back to blast the Mavericks by 30 in Game 5 in Phoenix, but Dallas returned the favor in Thursday's 113-86 home victory to force a decisive Game 7. Then, the Mavs destroyed the Suns to end Phoenix's historic season in embarrassing fashion.

Morant got injured (knee) at the end of Game 3, and did not return for the final three games of the series, so the Grizzlies were playing without their best player.

The Suns made the NBA Finals last season, but they lost to the Milwaukee Bucks in six games. As for the Mavs, they are in the second-round of the playoffs for the first time since the 2011 season.
