Bench gives Mavs boost

By Tim MacMahon

DALLAS -- The Mavs' offensive spark came from some unusual suspects.

Reserve forwards Kris Humphries and Tim Thomas carried the scoring load in the second quarter, allowing the Mavs to take a 47-42 halftime lead over the Kings.

Humphries, who hadn't scored in double figures as a Mav, already has 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting. Thomas, who is playing his second game coming off knee surgery, cranked up nine shots in the half, making four and scoring eight points.
