More burn for Beaubois?
By Tim MacMahon
DALLAS -- Rookie guard Rodrigue Beaubois proved to coach Rick Carlisle that he's ready to play with his performance in Sunday's rout of the Knicks.
That was Beaubois' first significant playing time in about a month and a half. How long will he have to wait to get non-garbage minutes again?
"There will be opportunities where he can bring something to our game that no one else on our team can with his sort of different kind of athleticism and those sorts of things," Carlisle said. "But there are only so many minutes. There are going to be nights when he gets a shot. Some nights he may not. The key thing is that he stays ready."
With the Bucks in town, tonight might be a good time to get Beaubois off the bench again.
Beaubois made a major impact in the Mavs' overtime win in Milwaukee a couple of months ago. He had 12 points in that game, but his biggest contribution came in limiting then-red-hot rookie guard Brandon Jennings to two points in the extra period.
