Mavericks' Jonathan Gibson: Scores team-high 26 off bench Saturday

Gibson scored 26 points (8-16 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT) while adding six rebounds, three assists and two steals in 32 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 95-87 loss to the Magic.

In just his second career NBA game, Gibson led the Mavs in scoring, but his defensive lapses also resulted in D.J. Augustin scoring 10 points in the fourth quarter to lead Orlando to a come-from-behind win. Once Deron Williams (calf) returns to action, Gibson's minutes will decrease, but his performance Saturday might have been enough to carve out a regular spot in Dallas' backcourt rotation even after the roster gets healthier.
