Mavericks' J.J. Barea playing more minutes with Rajon Rondo sidelined


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2015) Mavericks backup point guard J.J. Barea is playing more minutes per game than he has at any other point because of the injury to Rajon Rondo. In the last five games, Barea is averaging 30.5 minutes.

"I always started with another point guard. Now I’m starting by myself. It’s great experience for me," Barea said. "For me, personally, it’s great. I’m playing against the best, and in the long run, it’s going to be great for me. You might as well go against the best because that’s how you get better."

Since being inserted into the starting lineup, Barea has reached double figures in scoring for four of the five games.

"I only play these minutes in the summer, and it’s a quick stint with my Puerto Rico team,” he said. "But your body has to get used to more minutes. You have to take care of your body even more. Even if you run the treadmill or run sprints after practices, it’s not the same as playing more minutes in games."

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."
