Rick Carlisle on benching Wesley Matthews in crunch time in Saturday's win in Memphis: "Hey, Wes wants to play. There's no question about that. And it's a good problem to have. You've got a guy like [Raymond] Felton that's playing that well, putting the ball in the hole, making plays and doing other things. These are tough decisions that a coach has to make, but I've got to make them." Matthews has been slumping for about a month, but he's tied with teammate Dirk Nowitzki for the NBA's best clutch plus-minus (plus-85) this season.

Zaza Pachulia worked with Holger Geschwindner, Dirk Nowitzki's longtime shot doctor, for about 10 minutes after Monday's practice. "It was great to get some tips from the legend," Pachulia said. Geschwindner worked with Pachulia to improve his balance and the arc on his jumper. Pachulia had a similar session before practice with coach Rick Carlisle after they reviewed film of the big man's last 25 jumpers. Pachulia is in the midst of a career year but has struggled with his jumper, making only 29.4 percent of his midrange attempts, compared to 41.4 percent last season with the Bucks. "I'm going to keep working on it, because I know I have it and I've got to get it back," Pachulia said.

Rick Carlisle wasn't nearly as opinionated on the firing of Derek Fisher as he was after David Blatt's dismissal. "I'm disappointed for him,' Carlisle said of Fisher. "I don't know the specifics of the internal situation. There were in the midst of a pretty good turnaround until the recent stretch, and it's unfortunate. Other than that, I don't know what to tell you." Fisher played for Carlisle and the Mavs in the 2012-13 season, quitting after playing in nine games to supposedly spend more time with his family, only to join the Thunder later in the season.
