Brandan Wright, Elton Brand start vs. Lakers

DALLAS -- Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle tweaked his starting lineup again, going back to the fivesome he used in the season-opening win over the Lakers.

Brandan Wright and Elton Brand are in. Troy Murphy and Chris Kaman are out.

The lineup of Darren Collison, O.J. Mayo, Shawn Marion, Wright and Brand is 3-1 this season.

Wright had fallen out of the rotation recently, not playing in two of the last five games. However, he was an impact player in the Oct. 30 win over the Lakers, scoring 14 points on 5-of-5 shooting, grabbing five rebounds and blocking three shots in 20 minutes.

Brand had started all 11 games he played in this season before coming off the bench in Wednesday's win over the Knicks.
