Jalen Brunson started for Luka Doncic (back/rest) on Wednesday but hit just 5-of-11 shots and missed all four of his 3-pointers for 11 points, six rebounds, four assists and two steals in 33 minutes of an 87-78 win over the Thunder.
The last time Brunson started for Luka he went nuts with 31 points and seven assists but he wasn't anywhere close to that tonight. Brunson was coming off a big game of 24 points and a nice stat line with Luka and managed to keep his double-digit scoring streak alive at nine games, despite tonight's struggles. Brunson is playing well enough, with or without Luka, to be grabbed in most leagues as the Mavericks head into the All-Star break as the No. 8 seed in the West after passing the Warriors tonight. 12:14 am (EST)
