Dallas Mavericks: Jalen Brunson pays off bet with Luka Doncic in custom Cowboys jersey
The Dallas Mavericks hosted the Minnesota Timberwolves in their team’s final preseason game on Dec. 17. They only had one home game in the shortened build up. It was odd seeing the American Airlines Center without fans during Thursday’s game.
Luka Doncic did not play his best, but he helped the Mavericks build a 15-point lead at the end of three quarters only to watch the reserves let it slip away in the overtime loss. Jalen Brunson had an off night as he finished one of nine from the field.
Perhaps, paying off a bet pregame threw him off. Fans saw Brunson’s tweet about what jersey Luka should get him. The bet was paid off on Thursday, and the jersey was not one people expected. Let us take a closer look.
