Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle: 'I did not bench Parsons'
|(3/19/15) Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle denied benching forward Chandler Parsons late in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's win, explaining he wanted to go with a quicker lineup, according to ESPN Dallas.|
With under six minutes remaining in a tight game, Magic forward Maurice Harkless beat Parsons for a baseline dunk. Carlisle then put forward Al-Farouq Aminu into the game and Parsons sat for virtually the final 5:26.
"I just wanted a quicker guy in there," Carlisle said. "With Aminu, you get some more options. Parsons didn't have a great night, but it happens. You're not going to get 30 points every night and sometimes your teammates got to pick you up. We had other guys step up."
"A little surprised [by Carlisle's decision], but not really," Parsons said. "We have a lot of players that can do different things. Any given night it can be someone different. The best thing is we won the game."
Parsons entered the game red hot, averaging 23.7 points over his previous three contests.
Mavericks' Al-Farouq Aminu does well on the boards in win

|(3/18/15) Mavericks forward Al-Farouq Aminu might have just scored seven points in Wednesday's game, but his coach Rick Carlisle is more excited about what he was able to do in the rebounding game, reports the Dallas Morning News.
"He's probably pound for pound as good a rebounder as we have," Carlisle said of Aminu, who tied for a team-high eight rebounds in the game. "Getting him into the equation has helped us. And we got to keep preaching it, keep selling it."
Aminu played 24 minutes in his first game back on the court after missing the last two with a shoulder injury.
"My job is to come in and provide energy, rebound and play defense," Aminu said. "That's always my first goal."
