The Dallas Mavericks defeated the Washington Wizards 109-87 on Saturday evening. Since the three starters played in Kristaps Porzingis, Maxi Kleber and Josh Richardson, for various reasons, they Both missed the game. To learn more about the game and what happened, click here to read the overview.
On this basis, let us enter some numbers that help explain why or at least some interesting data points worth thinking about in order to consider moving forward.
64: Since March 24, Jalen Brunson’s 2-point shooting percentage
I’m definitely picking a date and counting from there, but Brunson has been a two-pointer since the Minnesota Timberwolves game. In the past three games, he has made less than 33% of his three-pointers, but that̵
For the second consecutive game, Brunson’s driving is the key to opening Dallas’ offense. His pressing force is so small, and his floating game near the rim has reached the point where I expected them to enter. He has not missed the free throw opportunity of three consecutive victories.
19: Dallas is unbeaten in ninety games, they lead in one game
This is something I need to explain to me, because I have been trying to find the relevance of the past, “a good start will bring good results for the Mavericks.” They won 27 games in total, so after getting crazy in 1 of 19 games, they have been in the lead. The fact is the same, otherwise they are only 8-21. Commentator, please give me your theory.
21: Minutes of Josh Green
This is only Josh Smith’s third-highest record in a game this season, but it could easily be his highest record since January. Although it may be largely due to necessity, it is nice to see that Green has some playing time. His offense was brutal, but he played solid defense and bounced the ball on both ends. The Mavericks need him to participate in the game, otherwise the playoffs will overwhelm their wing rotation. If he can keep in touch in three games occasionally (considering his attempts so far seems a bit difficult), then his playing time should increase.
If you look really hard, then you will find what the Mavericks are interested in Green, he just needs time to learn how to play.
