The Dallas Mavericks defeated the Memphis Grizzlies 104-96 on Dec. 8 behind an impressive performance from superstar Luka Doncic, but it took a total team effort to grab the win.

Kristaps Porzingis was in foul trouble on Wednesday night. With Willie Cauley-Stein out, head coach Jason Kidd called on Moses Brown. Fans have been clamoring for more minutes for the 7’2 big man this season, but he played just a total of 32 through the first 23 games.

Brown rewarded Kidd and the Mavericks with 12 minutes that features plenty of flashes of his immense potential. The 22-year-old is still raw and figuring things out, but he made a massive impact. Here is a look at his stat line, what fans should be excited about, and where Brown still needs to improve.

He was the first player this season to produce nine, seven, and two in less than 15 minutes, according to Stathead.
