J.J. Barea started for the Mavs on Monday and was impressive as he turned back the clock to deliver 18 points on 7-of-13 shooting with two rebounds, two 3s and eight assists in 26 minutes.
Yup, the old man's still got it. That said, the Mavs were without their regular studs, Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porizingis, so don't bet money on Barea making a habit of going off like this for the remainder of the Mavs' seeding games. Trey Burke chipped in 14 points (5-of-10 FG, 2-of-2 3PM) one rebound, four dimes and two steals off the bench.
