Takeaway from Dallas Mavericks Game 2 playoff win over Jazz: 1. Brunson silences doubters

Fans were questioning how Jalen Brunson could perform in the playoffs after he was virtually played off the floor in Game 7 against the LA Clippers last year. JB silenced those doubters in Game 2 against the Utah Jazz as he went off for a career-high 41 points on 15 of 25 shooting from the field.

The 6’1 guard kept attacking all night. It was the first 40-point game of his career, and he tied a career-high with ten 3-point attempts. Brunson was unstoppable in Game 2, and it did not matter what look Utah sent his way.

JB is an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, and his list of suitors and contract increased on Monday night. Brunson proved that he can take over and lift his team to a playoff victory. Fans talked about his fourth-year breakout all season, and he cemented it with his Game 2 performance.
