Brunson continued his strong stretch of stellar 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 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.
Brunson totaled 10 points (4-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and one assist across 20 minutes in Monday's 127-88 loss to the Nets.
Brunson started again Monday despite his two-point dud his last time out, and he played much better, hitting 80 percent of his shots in the contest. His playing time took a dip Monday night as well, and it will be important to monitor his minutes moving forward, with Trey Burke on the bench.
