Dallas Mavericks stud in home win over Spurs: 1. Jalen Brunson

The Mavs needed a scorer on Thursday night, and have been searching for someone that can handle the ball and make plays next to Luka Doncic. Jalen Brunson filled both roles in the win over the Spurs. It was his second straight impressive offensive performance after he produced an 11-point 11-assist double-double versus the Rockets in the team's home opener.

Brunson looked more for his shot on Oct. 28. He went eight of 15 from the field including three 3-pointers to finish with 19 points in 30 minutes of action. JB got inside for some easy ones and made multiple key passes in the first quarter to get the Mavericks back in the game.

Brunson rounded out his line with five assists and seven rebounds in Thursday’s win as Dallas held a 21-point edge on the scoreboard when he played. It was an impressive night for JB, but not his first one of the season.

Jalen Brunson is on pace for a second straight career year. He improved his finishing and playmaking this offseason and looks ready to take another step forward. Expect JB to play significant minutes this season as he continues to be a key piece moving forward.
