Did Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez take a nap during Game 7?

The Mavericks dominated the game right from the start. The Luka Doncic-starred team had a 30-point lead on the Suns at halftime, which is the biggest lead in a Game 7 in the NBA history. Not only this, but the Mavericks also held the Suns to just 27 points till the first 24 minutes of the game.

As usual, Luka Doncic was the star for the Mavericks. Doncic alone scored 27 points in the first half. So, blaming A-Rod for taking a nap during the game will not be fair. Because the game was one-sided from the first minute on the court.
