Watch Suns-Mavericks GameThis is madness. Why do the Phoenix Suns and the Dallas Mavericks keep doing this to us? Why do we keep watching this crazy series? Because if you're a fan of either team, you have to. No matter how much stomachache you have. No matter how crazy - or happy, whichever - it makes you. The Suns and Mavericks meet Sunday at 5 p.m. for Game 7 of their second-round NBA playoff series. Win or go home and so on. Phoenix Suns vs. Dallas Mavericks: More on Game 7 of the NBA Playoffs Series The home team has won every game, often by a substantial margin. For example, the Suns looked terrible in their 113-86 collapse in Dallas on Thursday. All around just ugly; Even some of the entire Homer crowd following Sun's Twitter during games seemed to switch off early. Perhaps Mavericks fans did the same on Tuesday when the Suns blew Dallas 110-80 in Phoenix. It's a good trend if you're Phoenix, as Sunday's game will be played at the Footprint Center, with Kevin Harlan and Reggie Miller calling the game again for TNT. But after Thursday's game it's hard to have a lot of confidence. That makes this not only great TV, but - obviously alert - the most important game of the Suns season. Because if they don't win this, it will be the last game of their season. Moron. Beyond that, though, it's a chance to regain that trust. There were times in the playoffs when Devin Booker or Chris Paul had the ball and it was magic. You just know that something good is about to happen. Unfortunately, there are also times when you just know that's not the case. It's bizarre. In Paul's case, he's certainly old, but he owned the fourth quarter for most of the Suns' series against the New Orleans Pelicans. (After a subpar Game 3 against the Mavs on his 37th birthday, someone tweeted that they hoped the deal Paul made with the devil didn't expire in exactly 36 years.) You can pretty much always count on that Luka Dončić from Dallas goes to do something good every time he has the ball. You can be absolutely confident that if something good doesn't happen, he'll complain about it. A lot. It's his supporting cast that seems to be falling apart in Phoenix.

Speaking of whiners, the way NBA basketball is officiated these days really plays into their hands. It's usually absurd to complain that the official cost a team a game. But no matter who you're cheering for, the real absurdity is how players who take a light punch act like they've been hit with a sledgehammer. It's not football. That's not to say the NBA playoffs should go back to the bad ol' days when the Detroit Pistons raided everyone they played. A season wasn't complete until Sports Illustrated had at least one photo of Bill Laimbeer aiming for a rebound while choking an opponent the way Homer Simpson chokes Bart. Of course, good television is full of great drama. But officiating is bad drama, real "Manimal"-esque stuff. And the constant march to the replay screen takes the sting out of everyone, including the TV audience. However, it's another reason to yell at your TV screen, of which there have been many.
