Jalen Brunson cooled off in a major way in Wednesday's win, scoring five points with just two assists and a steal in 23 minutes of action.
Brunson had been playing well enough that Rick Carlisle went out of his way to cement that Dennis Smith Jr. (wrist) would start at point guard whenever he was ready to return, but just didn't have it tonight. He was bound to come back to earth but it's disappointing that it happened in such a cake matchup. The clock is ticking here but Brunson's fine to deploy until DSJ does get back on the floor.
