Suns top Mavs to finish 8-0 in bubble, but fail to advance

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) The Phoenix Suns did all they could in the bubble. It still wasn't enough.

Devin Booker scored 27 points and Phoenix beat the Dallas Mavericks 128-102 on Thursday to finish as the only team to win all eight games seeding games. That kept the Suns alive for a few hours, but they ended up on the outside looking in when Portland beat Brooklyn by a point.

Dario Saric scored 16 points and Cameron Payne and Cameron Johnson each added 15 for the Suns.
