Dennis Smith Jr. led the Mavericks to a huge win over the Pelicans on Friday night with 21 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, seven turnovers and five 3-pointers.
Smith has had a rough go of it the last three weeks but he snapped out of that slump with style on Friday night. A career high in rebounds, tying a career high in assists, tying a career high in 3s made and of course, Smith’s first career triple-double. His seven turnovers were also unfortunately a career high but that’s a product of high usage for this rookie. Overall, it was a brilliant 8-cat performance and a great 9-cat performance with just one blemish.
