Mavericks vs. Jazz: Jalen Brunson pours in career-high 41 points to even series with Utah

With All-Star point guard Luka Doncic still sidelined with a calf strain, the Dallas Mavericks were going to need someone else on the team to step up in the absence of their franchise centerpiece heading into Game 2 against the Utah Jazz. That responsibility was always going to fall on the shoulders of one of -- or both -- Jalen Brunson and Spencer Dinwiddie, but it was a matter of if they could answer the call. On Monday night, Brunson certainly lived up to the tall task, as he poured in 41 points en route to Dallas' 110-104 win over Utah to even the series at 1-1.

Knicks have touched base with the Knicks about Jalen Brunson

When asked about Jalen Brunson’s pending free agency and potential trade market, Begley stated the Knicks ‘have at least touched base’ with the Mavericks about Brunson. Begley also mentioned there’s at least one more team willing to make him an offer ‘north of $20 million’ in free agency. “Jalen Brunson, for many different reasons, has been on the Knick radar for a while now. He’s got plenty of connections to the Knicks. So I know the Knicks, at the very least, have touched based with Dallas on Brunson and I can’t tell you what it would take to pry Brunson from Dallas from a Knick perspective. I’m not sure on that.
