Vince Carter back in lineup; Roddy Beaubois on the bench

March, 3, 2012
DALLAS -- Rodrigue Beaubois’ remarkable performance in Friday night’s loss to the Hornets did not earn him another start.

Beaubois kept the Mavs in that game with 25 points on 11-of-17 shooting, but he’ll come off the bench against the Utah Jazz. Vince Carter is back in the lineup after his streak of 16 consecutive starts was snapped last night.

"I don’t know if it’s so much about lineups right now as it is about just hanging in and having the resolve to stay with it and fight our way out," coach Rick Carlisle said after last night's loss. "That’s where we are."

Beaubois has given the Jazz fits this season. He had 39 points on 15-of-24 shooting in two wins over Utah. He played arguably the best all-around career in the last meeting with the Jazz, when he scored 22 points, dished out seven assists, grabbed six rebounds and blocked four shots in 36 minutes after Jason Kidd strained his calf early in the game.
