Brunson was remarkable as he put up 41 points against the Jazz, leading the Mavericks to an impressive win.
During Dallas’ 110-104 win over the Jazz, Brunson demonstrated that he’s a pretty well rounded athlete. In addition to those 41 points that he scored, Brunson also grabbed eight rebounds and had five assists.
Interestingly enough, Brunson did all of this without recording a single foul.
With this win, the Mavericks might just be in a position to really make this series interesting. If Brunson can continue playing like this, Dallas might have a real shot to advance on in the NBA playoffs. That’s a lot to ask, but Brunson has already proven that it is possible in theory.
Now, as Brunson has shown just how good he can be in a challenging situation, expect his contract situation to get a ton of attention.
