After being taken to the limit in the conference semifinals, the Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks have survived and advanced to play for the right to represent the West in the NBA Finals. It's expected to be an exciting, high-scoring series featuring two of the game's biggest stars in Steve Nash and Dirk Nowitzki.
Both teams are looking to show that they're capable of winning their first NBA championship. While Dallas has never reached the NBA Finals, Phoenix's last trip came 13 years ago with Charles Barkley leading the way.
Will the Suns have difficulty slowing down the Mavericks? Which team's star is more valuable to his team: Nash or Dirk?
