NBA - US Sports: Doncic delighted as Mavs stun Suns

Dallas star Luka Doncic says the Mavericks' belief never wavered after they thrashed Phoenix Suns 123-90 on Sunday to secure a place in the Western Conference Finals.

Dallas can be backed at 13/2 to win the NBA Championship outright and Doncic is 7/1 to be the Finals Series MVP.

Warriors waiting to face Mavericks

The Mavs will take on Golden State Warriors in the Conference Finals after seeing off top seeds Phoenix in emphatic fashion on Sunday.

Dallas were never behind at the Footprint Center in Arizona and by the halfway point they had built up a huge 30-point lead.

The Suns simply had no answer and were unable to respond after the interval, as they saw their own championship hopes extinguished in front of their own fans.

"I can't get this smile off my face right now, I'm just really happy. Honestly, I think we deserved this," said Doncic, via Fadeaway World.

"We've been playing hard the whole series - maybe a couple games here we weren't ourselves. But we came here today for Game 7. We believed our luck, everybody believed. So, I'm just happy."
