Is it possible the No. 2 overall pick has added more to his game throughout the course of the season?

No, it's not.

"I've had it," Bagley said after the win over Dallas. "It was just a matter of time before I was able to show it."

It's the quiet confidence from the rookie that has helped fuel his play since his return from injury.

"I've had confidence from the jump. They just weren't falling. I've never lost confidence in my shot."

No. 35 finished Thursday's victory with 22 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks - his third straight game of 20 or more points.

As a result, the Duke product has put up some eye-popping numbers in the month of March.

"(Marvin) Bagley is terrific," Dallas coach Rick Carlisle. "He's much improved. Shooting the three consistently, so he's a big problem."

Bagley is putting together his best month as a professional, averaging 20 points and 7.6 rebounds on 62 percent shooting in 23.6 minutes.
