The Phoenix Suns will host Game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Dallas Mavericks at 5:00 pm on Sunday.
The home team has won every game in the series so far, which should bode well for the Suns.
However, the Game 6 loss in Dallas was the first time in the Monty Williams era that the Suns failed to win a close-out game.
Game time was not determined until the result of Game 6 of the series between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Boston Celtics.
With a Celtics win over the Bucks, the Suns contest will be the second game on the NBA slate Sunday on TNT.
It is the first Game 7 the Suns have hosted since 2006 when the Phoenix beat the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference semifinals, 127-107.
The Suns also hosted Game 7 in the first round of the 2006 playoffs, defeating the Los Angeles Lakers, 121-90.
It will be the 10th Game 7 in Suns franchise history. The team is 4-5 all time.
Listen to the game live on 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station.
