Mavs Level Behind Brunson

Hits: 0

On Monday night the shorthanded Dallas Mavericks clawed their way back into the series at home behind guard Jalen Brunson.

After dropping the first game to Utah, and still without All-Star playmaker Luka Doncic, Dallas was essentially in a must win situation.  As a team, they connected on 22 shots behind the arc.  Brunson, out of Villanova, had a career high 41 points as he carried the Mavs past Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz.

Utah led at times in the game, and had opportunities to close game 2 out, but lacked cutting edge.  They will now travel back to Salt Lake City, a place that the Mavericks have not won in 11 straight games.
