The Mavericks are yet to play Luka Doncic in the first round series against the Jazz. Despite missing its superstar, Dallas managed to take a 2-1 lead thanks to huge performances by Jalen Brunson.

There is growing optimism that the Slovenian point guard who has been out with a left calf strain is finally close to returning to action.

He has been upgraded to probable for Game 4 in Utah, as announced by the Mavericks.
