Dallas Mavericks: Jalen Brunson pokes fun at Luka Doncic for not dunking
Dallas Mavericks superstar Luka Doncic was incredible on Wednesday night in Charlotte. He showed off his improved defense by getting two steals and four blocks to go along with his 34 points, 13 rebounds, and nine assists. Doncic had the entire tool kit on display in the blowout win. See his best plays from Jan. 13 here.
The Mavs needed Luka more than ever with five players sidelined because of the NBA’s health and safety protocols. The 21-year-old superstar responded with one of the best all-around games of his career. The Mavericks should continue to improve as Kristaps Porzingis ramps up his workload, but they have won four straight and look dangerous.
It was an outstanding night for Doncic, but he did catch some heat from the bench on one play. Jalen Brunson was not at the game as he is quarantining, but he even chimed in on Twitter about it. Let us take a closer look.

In the third quarter, Doncic stole an off-target pass and got a breakaway in the open court. Instead of slamming down a dunk, Luka decided to just softly lay the ball in. The bench erupted in disapproval as he flashed a big smile. Fans can see the play here.
Jalen Brunson was quick to chime in with his thoughts on social media. See his tweet below.
Consider it the one blemish on a nearly flawless night from the Mavericks superstar. The team looked unstoppable in Charlotte. The Hornets never led as the Mavs dominated the action for their sixth win of the season. It is good to see that everyone is still having fun and not afraid to poke some fun at their star player.
The best is yet to come from Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks, so please stay tuned.
