I can’t wait to watch the Jalen Brunson show on Tuesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs, a defensive-minded team, will have a different squad on the court on Tuesday. They’ll be without defensive anchor Jarrett Allen and point guard Darius Garland, while Donovan Mitchell is questionable. Without those first two, the Cavs allowed Pacers point guard Tyrese Haliburton to go to work on Saturday night. He finished with 42 PRA and made 4 3-pointers. The night before was much of the same. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had 49 PRA on his way to leading the Thunder to a win. The hope for tonight is Mitchell playing to make this game competitive.
Volume is what we’re banking on and we know Brunson is going to get his. He’s averaging upwards of 19 field-goal attempts through three games but shooting the ball at a 36% clip. He went bonkers in the 2nd game of the season against the Hawks as he dropped 31 points on 8 from 12 from three-point range. One could wish for that type of efficiency tonight, but Brunson should be in line for another massive workload against a Cavaliers team that has allowed opponents to shoot over 40% from 3 to start the season.
