Roddy Beaubois rides pine for Mavs

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The odds of Roddy Beaubois being part of the Mavs' playoff rotation get slimmer by the game.

Beaubois got nothing but garbage time Wednesday night. He hasn't taken off his warmups tonight.

Rick Carlisle is opting to play JJ Barea at in a three-guard lineup midway through the fourth quarter. Considering the fact that Barea is scoreless on 0-of-5 shooting, that's a difficult decision to understand.

It seems like the Mavs might be able to use Beaubois' scoring punch in a brickfest with the Blazers, but the rookie keeps riding pine.
