Dominique Jones stuffs box score in summer win

July, 20, 2012
Dominique Jones' dominance of the Las Vegas summer league continued with his best all-around performance so far in Friday’s 78-65 win over the Hornets.

Jones, the guard entering his third season, stuffed the box score with 16 points on 7-of-11 shooting, five rebounds and nine assists.

The assists total is especially noteworthy for Jones, a 2010 first-round pick who played sparingly in his first two NBA seasons. The Mavs are trying to turn the 6-foot-5 Jones into a point guard, but he was much more effective as a scorer than a distributor in the first three games this summer, when he had 11 assists and 10 turnovers. Jones had three turnovers Friday night.

The Mavs’ two second-round picks also had solid performances as Dallas improved its summer record to 3-1 despite first-round guard Jared Cunningham being sidelined by a strained hamstring.

Small forward Jae Crowder had a game-high 18 points along with four rebounds, three steals and two blocks. Center Bernard James had nine points, eight rebounds, five blocks and three steals.
