The Dallas Mavericks had one of their best wins of the season on March 17. They bounced back to defeat the LA Clippers 105-89 to split the two-game set. Luka Doncic had a monster 42-point performance, but it was the defense that sealed the game in the second half.
Jalen Brunson did not have one of his best games. He finished with five points, three rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 16 minutes of action. Still, the Mavericks point guard has been outstanding this season and is one of the most underrated players in the league.
Draymond Green took notice on Wednesday night. Here is a look at what the three-time All-Star and three-time NBA champion had to say about Brunson’s game.

Green did not hide his affection for Brunson’s play. Here is his Tweet from March 17.
JB was quick to respond on Twitter and offer his usual brand of comedy.
It was not Brunson’s best performance on Wednesday night, but Mavericks fans could not agree more with Green’s tweet. JB is the perfect glue player. He comes in off the bench and keeps the offense rolling. Brunson can hit difficult shots, but he always brings energy and hard-nosed play. The 24-year-old is in the midst of a breakout season that should only earn him more playing time going forward.
The Dallas Mavericks travel to Portland for a two-game set against the Trail Blazers this weekend. Those are always exciting contests as Damian Lillard and Luka Doncic often engage in an unbelievable scoring duel. Keep an eye on Jalen Brunson, though. The Mavs backup point guard could go off against the Blazers.
Draymond Green shared his love for Brunson’s game. Fans should not be afraid to do the same. Do not hesitate to tweet at The Smoking Cuban showing love for the Dallas Mavericks.
