Brunson delivered 16 points (6-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three assists, two rebounds and two steals across 26 minutes in the Mavericks' 126-118 loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday. The rookie continues to turn in highly efficient offensive performances, as Wednesday's 60.0 percent success rate marked the fourth time in the last five games in which he'd drained at least half his attempts. Brunson has now taken double-digit shot attempts in eight consecutive contests as well, and both his starting role and usage appear locked in for what remains of the campaign.
Brunson managed 16 points (6-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists and two rebounds across 26 minutes in the Mavericks' 121-116 win over the Cavaliers on Saturday. Brunson continued his strong stretch of recent play Saturday, and his contributions were particularly important in the absence of Luka Doncic (knee). The rookie has now scored in double digits for seven straight games, and in 10 of his last 12 overall. He's been doing it with elite-level shooting, as Brunson has now drained 53.3 percent or more of his attempts in four of his last five contests, a sample that includes three games with at least a 60.0 percent success rate. The 22-year-old projects to continue logging plenty of minutes as Dallas looks to lay a foundation for next season.
Brunson finished with 20 points (8-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 39 minutes during Thursday's 100-99 loss to Denver. Brunson was magnificent again Thursday, notching his sixth straight double-digit scoring game. Over that period he is averaging 18.5 points, 3.6 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 1.8 three-pointers. He has also hit 17 consecutive free-throws and has emerged as a must-roster player across most formats.
Brunson generated 34 points (12-16 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT), five rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 112-105 loss to the Spurs. Brunson finished with career high scoring and minutes totals while producing double-digit points for the fifth straight contest. It was an extraordinarily efficient effort from the rookie point guard, who stepped up with Luka Doncic (knee) struggling in this one. Given that the Mavericks are clearly focused on developing the young talent on the roster, Brunson is a good bet to continue earning at least 30 minutes more often than not.
Brunson totaled 18 points (6-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds and four assists over 35 minutes in the Mavericks' loss to the Rockets on Sunday. Brunson made his sixth consecutive start in Sunday's loss, producing a solid stat line. He's averaged 15.3 points and 7.0 assists over his last three games, and if he can sustain that level of production moving forward, he may find value outside of deep leagues.
