Clinical win by Dallas tonight. Denver was held to a season low in points and it had a lot to with the Defense on Carmelo Anthony.
But that wasn't the most interesting thing of the game. Anthony Johnson didn't step on the court tonight. In David Moore's article Thursday, Avery Johnson expressed that he was concerned by Jason Terry's reduced scoring and said he might be looking at different ways of using him.
"Jason has been a huge part of our success. I don't see him in the rhythm of the game as much as I've seen in the past. We've got to try to fix that. We need him to take and make shots."
|Dirk Nowitzki||9||8.1||A quiet 25 points. Uncharacteristic five turnovers but had five assists and was robbed of a few more|
|Jason Terry||9||6.9||Arguably his best game of the year and definitely his best in about a month|
|Josh Howard||10||7.6||Ties his career high in points - lead the team in rebounds - and was hugely responsible for Carmelo Anthony's rough night|
|DeSagana Diop||7||6||Really crashed the boards - six offensive rebounds|
|Greg Buckner||7||5.9||Not much in the box score - but played some nice defense and didn't make any mistakes|
|Devin Harris||6||7||Really sloppy fourth quarter|
|Erick Dampier||7||6.8||Got his first foul in the first second but was solid after that|
|Devean George||6||6.1||Some good (defense and rebounds) some bad (fouls-turnovers-2/8 shooting)|
|Moe Ager||6||5.3||Knew he would take that final shot when he got the ball|
