--F Peja Stojakovic worked out some of the kinks in his Dallas debut Monday against Cleveland. On the shelf since November, the 13-year vet started and scored eight points in 20 minutes.
He made 5 of 11 shots, including one from downtown. Stojakovic is tied with Dale Ellis for fourth place on the all-time 3-pointer list with 1,719.
--C Tyson Chandler entered Monday's game averaging 14.8 rebounds per game over his last four games. He posted 10 points and 11 rebounds against Cleveland en route to his 13th double-double of the season. He's now recorded a double-double in four of the last five contests.
--C Ian Mahinmi came off the bench Monday to score 11 points and pull down eight boards. It was the third time this season he's scored in double figures.
"Every time I get on the court, my first thing is to bring energy," Mahinmi said. "I've got to play the game with a lot of energy, rebound the ball, play good defense and then the offense comes. The more you feel comfortable, the rest will come."
--G Roddy Beaubois (broken foot) is expected to start practicing soon. He was injured in August, and no official timetable has been set for his return.
--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.
