SALT LAKE CITY -- As Rick Carlisle ponders ways to fix the Mavs' defensive mess, he might consider giving Quinton Ross a role.

Ross, a defensive-minded wing, opened the season in the starting lineup but has hardly played since November. He was a DNP-coach's decision the last two games, both of which were embarassing defensive efforts for the Mavs.

Ross is a limited offensive player, but he can probably helped a team that has recently played "very soft defensively," according to their coach.

"He’s in my thought process," Carlisle said. "With our need for defense, it’s something that’s certainly a possibility."
