Luka who? And what’s a Kyrie?
Aussie Josh Green, starting in the absence of Doncic and new recruit Irving, produced his best NBA performance on Tuesday leading Dallas to a 124-111 win over Utah.
Green led the team with a career-best 29 points in 37 minutes, going 10 of 17 from the field with six rebounds and a team-high +39 plus-minus.

Rookie guard Jaden Hardy, who was mentioned alongside Green as the team’s most valuable remaining trade pieces after the mammoth Irving deal, matched the Aussie with 29 points off the bench.
“Josh Green suddenly feels like one of the most important young players in the league,” SB Nation writer Ricky O’Donnell tweeted.
