Suns-Mavericks live stream (5/8): How to watch the NBA playoffs online, on TV, on time
The Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks face off on Sunday, May 8 in Game 4 of their NBA Western Conference playoff series. The game will be streamed live on fuboTV, which offers a free trial.
Dallas snapped an 11-game losing streak against Phoenix, including the regular season. The Mavericks limited the impact of Devin Booker the same way they did with Chris Paul. Booker scored 18 but was just 2 of 7 inside the 3-point line. Paul had 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting in the Suns’ lowest-scoring game of the season. Paul also had seven turnovers.
“You’re two games ahead and you know they’re going to come out and hit you in the mouth, but I thought we could have calmed down a bit more on offense,” Suns coach Monty Williams said.

MUST KNOW: The Suns went 50% short on shots for the first time in the Game 3 playoffs, finishing 45% to end an eight-game streak. They also struggled to get shots for Paul and Booker. The pair combined for just 22 shots while two complementary scorers behind Doncic, Dorian Finney-Smith and Reggie Bullock, attempted 21 3-pointers and made eight (four each).
KEEP AN EYE ON: Deandre Ayton’s numbers were solid in Game 3 (16 points, 11 rebounds), but he wasn’t the force that helped the Suns navigate Game 1 of the series. Its overall effectiveness is also down. Ayton is shooting 55% against the Mavericks after finishing 70% in the six-game win over New Orleans.
INJURY WATCH: Dallas F Maxi Kleber continues to face physical challenges. He played 32 minutes after a frightening fall to his back, shoulders and neck in game 2. Then he came out of game 3 with a small shadow under his left eye after a collision while trying to block a dunk attempt by Mikal Bridges.
THE PRESSURE IS ON: The Suns don’t even want to think about what happened the last time they had a 2-0 lead. It was the NBA Finals last year when Milwaukee responded with four straight wins. Now is the time for the defending Western champions to put the Mavericks on the brink of elimination in Dallas’ first post-round trip since winning the title 11 years ago.
