With Monta Ellis (elbow) and Dirk Nowitzki struggling, Parsons took it upon himself to keep the Mavericks in the game on Tuesday. He has been on a tear lately, and if Ellis' elbow injury lingers Parsons could be forced to carry more of the offensive load short-term. Still, it seems Parsons is starting to get comfortable with his new team, and he should remain a quality contributor regardless of Ellis' status going forward.

Parsons was in dire need of a performance like this. Despite the fact that it's the Bucks, Parsons was off to a somewhat slow start this season. He is clearly a great acquisition for the Mavericks, but he has been struggling to find his niche on this deep roster as of late. Consider tonight to be one of those hiccups, but be put on notice about his assertiveness offensively from here on out.
