Dallas Mavericks' Jalen Brunson stays hot, scores 31 in Game 3 win over Utah Jazz

That's about the only way the Jazz have managed to slow down Brunson over the past couple of games.

The Mavs seized a 2-1 series lead with a 126-118 win in large part because Brunson delivered his second

consecutive spectacular performance while Mavs superstar point guard Luka Doncic recovers from his left calf strain.

Doncic has been ramping up his basketball activity and hopes to make his series debut in Saturday's Game 4.
