With Dirk Nowitzki out of the line up, the Dallas Mavericks looked to Shawn Marion to lead the way. Marion performed scoring a season-high 29 points against the Phoenix Suns. The victory over the Suns stretched the Mavs home winning streak to seven straight games.

Marion was the story of the night, entering the game with just five three pointers all night, he ended the game going 4-6 from behind the arc and 11 for 20 from the field. The Mavericks are 11-7 on the season, and ended a two game losing streak with their victory over the Suns.

The Mavs are the reigning NBA Champs, look to repeat in this shortened NBA season.
