This is bad news for the Mavericks, who have struggled to contain Doncic in earlier matchups (and have struggled to contain Jalen Brunson the last two games). Doncic averaged 28.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 8.4 assists a game this season, and the Mavericks’ offense is 4.4 points per 100 possessions better when he plays.
