As he recovered from shoulder surgery, Brunson expects Mavs to build off this season

After watching the Dallas Mavericks put up a valiant effort while losing to the Los Angeles Clippers in six games in the opening round of the playoffs, guard Jalen Brunson believes the Mavs would have had an even greater chance at winning that series had they been at full strength.

Center Dwight Powell (Achilles tendon) and Brunson (shoulder) missed the entire series against the Clippers after undergoing respective surgery earlier this year. Center Willie Cauley-Stein also missed the entire series after his daughter was born prior to the Mavs leaving Dallas on July 8 for the bubble in Orlando.
