Zaza Pachulia will return to the starting lineup on Sunday against the Blazers.
Chandler Parsons (hamstring) has been ruled out. Pachulia will start in his place. He was moved to the bench as the Mavs opted to go small over the last few games. Although it was back in January, Pachulia posted 21 points and 14 rebounds in his last game against the Blazers. That may have played into him starting today. Depending on how the Mavs fare today will likely determine if Rick Carlisle sticks with Pachulia in the starting lineup or goes small again.
