Dallas Mavericks Roster Report 2009-04-25

Dallas Mavericks Roster Report 2009-04-25
ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Jason Kidd, Shooting guard J.J. Barea, Small forward Josh Howard, Power forward Dirk Nowitzki, Center Erick Dampier. Bench -- Guard Jason Terry, Guard Antoine Wright, Forward Brandon Bass, Forward James Singleton, Center Ryan Hollins, Guard Gerald Green, Guard Matt Carroll.


--G Jason Terry was named the NBA Sixth Man of the Year after averaging 19.6 points and 3.4 assists per game for the Mavericks this season.

--C Erick Dampier talked the talk after Game 2 in San Antonio, vowing to put Spurs guard Tony Parker on his back the first time he drove the lane in Game 3.

He didn't have to level Parker to be a major defensive factor. Dampier bodied Spurs forward Tim Duncan and made him work to get in the paint. Duncan missed seven of nine shots and finished with just four points.

Dampier made his only field goal of the night, but he grabbed nine rebounds and had three blocked shots.

--F Dirk Nowitzki finally found his rhythm in Game 3 and finished with 20 points, the first time in the series he's hit the 20-point mark.

Nowitzki ended the regular season with 25 straight games of 20 points or more, the longest streak in the NBA this season. Nowitzki made 8-of-12 shots and all four free throws in 26:31.

His quick start helped the Mavs jump in front of the Spurs by 11 points in the first quarter, reversing the trend in the first two games in San Antonio when the Spurs led by 11 after Games 1 and 2.

"In the first two games they were the aggressors early and they got out to early leads in both games," Nowitzki said. "We just wanted to turn that around and get our crowd into the game and get everyone excited. It always comes down to making shots, and we made a lot of shots early."

--G J.J. Barea stole top billing among the two teams' point guards in Game 3 for the second time in the series.

Barea got the start in place of Antoine Wright and was an immediate difference-maker with his speed and ability to get to the basket. He finished with 13 points and seven assists, outscoring and out-assisting teammate Jason Kidd (three points, six assists) and Spurs point guard Tony Parker (12 points, three assists).

"The first time," Barea said of outscoring Parker. "Let's see if we can do it again Saturday (in Game 4)."


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

--G-F Devean George (right knee) is out for the rest of the season.
