Coach Rick Carlisle, who mentioned that matchups made it difficult for traditional centers to play against Cleveland, said that Salah Mejri had earned playing time over Noel at this point. “Look, minutes have to be earned,” Carlisle said. “At this point, if it’s between him and Salah, Salah has earned the minutes. There’s no doghouse here. There just isn’t. It’s pretty simple: You compete, and if you earn minutes, you get minutes. And you’ve got to compete to keep them, because it’s a competitive situation.”

Noel said he wasn’t frustrated by not getting the opportunity to play Saturday night, emphasizing that he would remain ready. “I’m good, I’m good,” Noel said. “I’m a very self-confident player. I know I can go in there and change games. When my number is called, I’ll do just that and help some winning efforts. That’s all my play style is about, is just winning. When I’m called on, I’ll bring my winning effort.”

Nerlens Noel is ready. The Dallas Mavericks center is geared up to face Joel Embiid Saturday night at American Airlines Arena. Noel isn’t concerned that his 6-foot-11, 214-pound frame is shorter and lighter than the 76ers’ franchise player’s frame, which is closer to 7-2 and 290. He’s aware Embiid will most likely talk trash and even yell “He can’t guard me” throughout the game after scoring. “Oh, yeah, I’m going to come at him,” Noel said of his former teammate. “Come at him. I think we are going to have a great competition, great battle just like we used to in practice.”
