‘Keep Pushing Yourself’: Dallas Mavs Rising Star Jalen Brunson Not Satisfied With Career-Best Season


As much attention as Luka Doncic has received for his stellar play as the Dallas Mavericks completed their best regular season in 11 years, Jalen Brunson, who was also selected in that 2018 NBA Draft with Doncic, has been just as important in what has been a breakout year.

Playing in 79 of the Mavs’ 82 games, Brunson averaged 16.3 points, 3.9 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game. All of those averages were career highs. Brunson also shot 50.2 percent from the field, 37.3 percent from deep and 84 percent from the free-throw line. His field-goal percentage was the highest in the league among all other guards (min. 750 attempts).
