J.J. Barea went for 14 points, nine assists, two rebounds, one steal, one block, four turnovers and three 3-pointers in the Mavericks’ big win over the Pelicans on Friday night.
Barea’s assists have really seen an improvement this season and they continue to go up. In his career, he averages a little less than four per game. This month, he’s averaging 7.1 assists and has been a key to the Mavs’ sudden turnaround where they’ve won three in a row. Barea is slowly becoming a great option in standard leagues.
