Suns vs Mavericks on Christmas Day Takes Rivalry to The Next Level

One of the other Exciting Matchups for the Suns this season will take place on Christmas day as they face the Dallas Mavericks in a game where both teams and fan bases don’t like each other.

There is a lot of history between the two teams as back in 2021-22, the Suns and Mavericks faced off in the playoffs and the Mavericks beat the Suns in game 7 at Footprint in blowout fashion.

This game not only ended their season, but it was so bad that the Suns’ social media team sent out an apology to the fans a day after the game.

The series had a lot of chippiness and trash talk that it was slowly turning the two teams into one of the NBA’s most anticipated rivalries.

This past season, the Suns and Mavericks had a lot of great memories including game-winners from Damian Lee on opening night and Kevin Durant later in the season.

And let’s not forget the Devin Booker and Luka Doncic scuffle at the end of the game that only made looking forward to this Christmas day game that much more exciting.

Both players don’t seem to have any hate for each other on or off the court. But when they’re competing, you can tell that there’s always something brewing for both teams.
