Dallas Mavericks Roster Report 2009-03-02

Dallas Mavericks Roster Report 2009-03-02
ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Jason Kidd, Shooting guard Antoine Wright, Small forward Josh Howard, Power forward Dirk Nowitzki, Center Erick Dampier. Bench -- Forward Brandon Bass, Guard J.J. Barea, Forward James Singleton, Guard Jason Terry, Guard-Forward Devean George, Center Ryan Hollins.


--G Jason Kidd tried to play coy heading into Sunday's game regarding a certain milestone achieved by only three players before him in the history of the NBA.

"What milestone?" Kidd asked.

Uh, 10,000 assists. Ring a bell?

Kidd joined John Stockton, Mark Jackson and Magic Johnson in the exclusive club on a pass to Brandon Bass at the 1:03 mark of the third quarter. Kidd finished the game with 15 assists and now has 10,002 in his 15th season, fourth among all-time NBA leaders.

--G Jason Terry sprang a surprise Sunday by dressing and playing in his first game since Feb. 7. Terry had surgery to repair a broken bone in his left hand and was expected to miss at least another week or two.

Terry got a big hand from the crowd when he checked in well into the first quarter. He played just 19 minutes, about 16 minutes or so off his season average coming off surgery on his left hand to repair a broken bone.

The sixth man showed some rust, making just 3-of-9 shots and firing up some real clunkers. He finished with eight points and he extended his streak of consecutive games with a three-pointer to 40, the second-longest streak in the NBA.

--G J.J. Barea has always said he likes to chase down the defensive rebound and start the fast break, much like his veteran teammate Jason Kidd.

Lately, Barea, who stands a good inch or so under 6-foot, has been doing it well. Entering Sunday's game against Toronto, Barea had averaged five rebounds over the past five games.

Barea said his quickness enabled him to become a good rebounder as a kid growing up in Puerto Rico and he carried the passion to board to Northeastern.

"I like to get us started on the break quick, and if the big guys do a good job of boxing out, then there's a couple loose balls for me," Barea said. "I just track them down. I always liked to do it. But it's a little harder here."


--G Jerry Stackhouse (right heel) is out indefinitely.
