Our weekly look at which Mavs stocks have risen and fallen the most:

Streaking
STOCK UP
Brandan Wright Wright answered the bell when the Mavs needed him Thursday night, scoring a season-high 16 points in 23 minutes against the Suns. Not bad for a guy who had more DNP-CDs (three) than points (two) in the previous four games. Wright also had two blocks and two steals in the win over the Suns. (Granted, he only had four rebounds, and his poor production on the boards is the primary reason he’d been banished to the end of the bench.) Wright will probably another opportunity to mark his mark Saturday night in Houston with Chris Kaman and Shawn Marion nursing injuries.

Slumping
STOCK DOWN
Jae Crowder The Mavs’ second-round rookie is mired in a miserable shooting slump. It started during last week’s back-to-back in Philadelphia and Chicago, but it’s been especially bad over the last three games, when Crowder scored a total of six points on 1-of-16 shooting. Coach Rick Carlisle replaced Crowder in Thursday’s starting lineup with Dahntay Jones.
