Nerlens Noel came off the bench for the Mavs on Tuesday and finished with 11 points, 12 boards, one assist and three blocks in 22 minutes against the Lakers.
That marks Noel’s third double-double in a Mavericks uniform. Rick Carlisle has been using Dirk Nowitzki as the five in the starting unit, but Noel has held down value regardless of how he starts games. He’s averaging 9.8 points, 8.0 boards, 0.8 steals and 1.0 blocks on 63.6 percent from the field since being traded from Philly.
