This game was never really close so Brunson saw more action than usual, leading the bench in minutes. He led the team in assists as well but shot poorly. Trey Burke has been carving into Brunson’s minutes lately but the the latter has still been putting up decent numbers. With that said, he’s been a better real life than fantasy player this season, which should help the Mavs this postseason but doesn’t offer us much in the fantasy playoffs.
Jalen Brunson provided 17 points (8-12 FG, 1-3 3PT) with three assists, two rebounds, and one steal over 26 minutes as the Mavericks lost to the Kings 111-99 on Sunday.
Brunson had a solid game shooting the ball, going 8-for-12 (66.7%) from the field. Trey Burke has seen an uptick in usage lately but Brunson's production has mostly been unaffected. He could take on an increased role for as long as Kristaps Porzingis remains out as the Mavericks are fighting for their playoff lives and need all the offensive help they can get.
Jalen Brunson went for 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3PT) to go along with four rebounds and three assists over 18 minutes as the Mavs took down the Warriors 133-105 on Tuesday.
Trey Burke drew the start over Brunson, which was an interesting move but the latter has been running the second unit offense for the last few months so perhaps coach Rick Carlisle wanted to keep things the same. Brunson has been a solid real-life player for the Mavs this year but doesn't contribute consistently enough to warrant fantasy consideration in the playoffs.
