The Dallas Mavericks come under pressure after a clap in the NBA playoffs.
The team of the German international Maximilian Kleber lost the second game with 109: 129 in the quarter-final series against the Phoenix Suns and is now 0: 2 behind.
Four victories are necessary to move into the conference finals.
Kleber came to nine points, the best thrower of the Mavs was Luka Doncic with 35 points.
After a balanced first half and a 60: 58 lead of Dallas at half-time, the Suns, who put the best team in the main round, pulled away in the third and, above all, fourth quarter.
Devin Booker with 30 points and the outstanding Chris Paul with 28 points did not get the Mavs defensive under control.
On Friday (local time), the 2011 champion has the chance to shorten in the first game in front of their own audience.
The Miami Heat also run 2-0 after a 119:10 win against the Philadelphia 76ers.
