LAS VEGAS -- The Mavs were desperately hoping a big man would emerge from the pack at the Las Vegas summer league. That became an even larger necessity with Bernard James having to head back to Dallas for personal reasons. One finally did emerge in the form of Jackie Carmichael.

In just under 27 minutes of action, the 6-foot-9 forward from Illinois State University started at power forward and contributed 23 points and nine rebounds in the 95-89 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday in the first round of the LVSL championship tournament. He had a combined nine points and three rebounds in less than 22 minutes of action in the team’s previous three games.

“I just wanted to come out there and do whatever I could to help the team,” Carmichael said. “I think just attacking the glass and being active opened everything else. That’s my game, trying to stay active. Everything else fell into place.”

Carmichael was actually a late addition to the summer league roster after Jud Dillard departed the team before heading to Las Vegas. He was trying to find his way as the team played their first three games and finally broke through in the fourth game.
