Stock Report: Roddy Beaubois on the rise
By Tim MacMahon
Our weekly look at which Dallas Mavericks stocks have risen and fallen the most:
STOCK UP Rodrigue Beaubois -- The Roddy B. roller coaster shot up this week with two lottery teams in town. In wins over the Wizards and Bobcats, Beaubois combined for 33 points on 15-of-24 shooting, 10 rebounds, seven assists, four steals and only two turnovers. He played so well that coach Rick Carlisle was comfortable letting Jason Kidd rest the entire fourth quarter in both games. Beaubois is attacking offensively and competing defensively. The big question: Can the kid sustain it against quality competition?
STOCK DOWN Brendan Haywood -- It’s not the big man’s fault, but he suddenly can’t stay healthy. Seven quarters after Haywood returned from a sprained left ankle, he sprained his right knee. The Mavs describe it as a mild sprain, but it’s likely that Haywood will miss some time. That’s especially bad news with Tim Duncan (twice) and Andrew Bynum on the schedule in the next week.
