The Dallas Mavericks won a thriller in Game 6 to continue the Utah Jazz's postseason frustrations and advance to the second round. The usual suspects stole the headlines as Luka Doncic earned his share of the praise, while breakout star Jalen Brunson has become a major talking point for Dallas as well. But Mavs' head coach Jason Kidd named an unsung hero who helped Dallas get the 98-96 win. Kidd stated after the game that Reggie Bullock was “sick as a dog” and still played 44 minutes for the Mavs.

Luka Doncic finished the game with 24 points, 9 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals, and 2 blocks for good measure to steal the show. Jalen Brunson added 24 points of his own while Dorian Finney-Smith contributed 18 points and 10 boards for the Mavs.

Bullock's final line won't jump off the page like those three players. He finished with 6 points, 6 boards, and 2 steals. But he gave the team everything he had and then some. When a player is injured/sick and still plays as hard as he can it fires up a team. It makes everybody on the roster want to give everything they can as well.

And considering he was sick, Bullock's numbers are solid. He certainly contributed to the victory. In a 2-point finish, Dallas needed all hands on deck. There was no denying his contributions for the Mavs as he posted a quality plus-minus of plus-9 for the game.

Depth is key in the postseason and Jason Kidd understands that. He has a roster that extends beyond Doncic and Brunson and he is going to utilize everybody from top to bottom.

This Mavericks squad has a chance to make a deep postseason run.
