There was a lot to like from Tatum and Brown in Monday's win, but the zero turnover aspect is probably the most impressive, especially when you consider how much they had the ball in their hands against the Mavericks.
A strong case could be made for Tatum and Brown as the league's top duo. Not only are these guys able to score 30-plus points any night, they also are great defenders and can guard multiple positions. This elite two-way set sets them apart from other great wings across the league.
