PODCAST
Ben & Skin let you know how the newest Mavs will fit in next season.

Listen Listen
Jones, prepared to enter his third season with the Mavs and perhaps with his best shot at earning playing time, hit 12-of-25 shots and went 7-of-9 from the free throw line.

Mavs first-round draft pick Jared Cunningham (hamstring) did not play. Second-round picks, forward Jae Crowder out of Marquette and center Bernard James, were both in the starting lineup. Crowder finished with nine points on 4-of-12 shooting after a hot start and five rebounds. The 6-foot-10 Bernard, the Air Force veteran who attended Florida State, had nine points on 4-of-4 shooting, eight rebounds and three blocked shots in 30 minutes.

The Mavs are back in action against the Raptors at 5 p.m Monday.
