--G Roddy Beaubois played his fifth game Sunday. Coach Rick Carlisle is pleased with Beaubois' conditioning and effort so far.
"We're looking at a sample of 25-27 games to get him to where we need to get him," Carlisle said.
--F Shawn Marion played a key role in Dallas' comeback from 19 points down Sunday at Toronto. He scored 20 off the bench, added six rebounds and the Mavs were a plus-18 with him in the game.
"We had to wake up some time, sooner or later," Marion said. "They had a day of rest, we came off a back-to-back. They hit some shots, we missed some shots. It took a little while to get our legs warmed up."
--G Jason Kidd continues to marvel at the depth of this Mavs team, from Dirk Nowitzki to the end of the roster.
"This might be the deepest team that I've ever played on," the 17-year vet said. "You have 12, 13 guys that can play and can start."
--F Caron Butler (right knee) is done for the regular season after rupturing his patella tendon. There's a chance he returns for the playoffs.
--G Dominique Jones (right foot stress fracture, right foot) is out indefinitely.
