Mavs’ Darren Collison Loses Starting Role
(Mavs coach Rick) Carlisle juggled his starting lineup with the biggest shakeup being the fact that point guard Darren Collison was out of it for the first time this season. Collison was coming off a two-point, four-turnover and 1-of-10 field goal-shooting performance during Saturday’s 115-89 humbling loss at home to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Dominique Jones started in Collison’s place against the Sixers and finished with two points and four turnovers.
“Am I happy about the situation? Nah,” Collison said. “…I know how hard I worked, and I’m still going to try to lead this team to victories in the near future, and I’m still going to try to make an impact like I tried to do today.”
