Rodrigue Beaubois' nine 3-pointers Saturday night at Golden State didn't just establish a new Mavs single-game record for rookies.

It's an NBA record.

Four previous rookies, including Kidd, had drained eight 3s in a game. They are Milwaukee's Brandon Jennings (earlier this month), Juan Carlos Navarro (with Memphis in November 2007), Chris Duhon (with Chicago in April 2005) and Kidd late in the 1994-95 season.

The Elias Sports Bureau reports that Beaubois is also the first rookie to score 40 points off the bench since Sacramento's Walt Williams had 40 on Jan. 2, 1993, in a 154-98 rout of Philadelphia. The Mavs' rookie record is 42 points by Mark Aguirre in November 1981; Jay Vincent had games of 41 and 40 points that same season.
