Mavericks G J.J. Barea makes Dallas debut
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1:07 am ET) Mavericks guard J.J. Barea made his debut with his new club Thursday night against the Jazz. Barea logged 19 minutes off the bench and finished with four points on 2 of 5 shooting from the field. He added four rebounds and three assists in a 120-102 victory.

Coach Rick Carlisle was impressed with how quickly Barea picked up the offense.

"I thought he played well for a guy who just basically showed up today. He is familiar with out system, so he will fit in. He is in good shape -- had a great summer playing in the FIBA World Championships," Carlisle said, via MavsOutsider.com. "We're fortunate to get him back. And with this roster, we have so many guys who can contribute and we are uncertain when everybody is going to play. But, he certainly showed tonight that he is a guy that is ready to go."


Pistons F Caron Butler drops 24 points in mop-up time
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

With the team down big after three quarters, coach Stan Van Gundy summoned Butler along with the reserves. Butler shot 10 of 14 from the field, including 4 of 7 from downtown. He added eight rebounds, three of which came from the offensive side of the glass while logging 31 minutes of game action in a 97-91 defeat.

"Caron played well," Kentavious Caldwell-Pope said, per the team's official website. "He came in with great energy off the bench, was knocking down shots. We kept going to him and he came through for us to get us back in the game."

Love was probable heading into the game due to a rib injury, but that didn't seem to bother him. Love played 38 minutes, shooting six of 14 from the field. He was able to hit three shots beyond the arc, and made all four of his free throws. Love also hauled in 14 rebounds and dished out four assists. He finished with 19 points.

Jennings was limited to only four points on 2 of 4 shooting from the field. He chipped in with sux assists and two rebounds in 16 minutes. Meanwhile, Augustin did not start, but logged 33 minutes of game action. He finished with 20 point son 6 of 18 shooting from the field, including 1 of 5 from downtown, and a perfect 7 of 7 from the charity stripe. Augustin added six assists and three rebounds.


Thunder G Russell Westbrook departs with apparent hand injury
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook subbed himself out of Thursday night's contest against the Clippers with an apparent right hand injury.

Westbrook's right hand landed awkwardly on Serge Ibaka's thigh while battling for a rebound. He remained in the game for a few plays before checking himself out of the game. Westbrook was escorted back to the locker room in the second quarter for further evaluation. He had just three points on 1 of 3 shooting before the injury. His status for the remainder of the game is uncertain.
