Mavs' starting five: JJ Barea, Monta Ellis, Al-Farouq Aminu, Dirk Nowitzki, Tyson Chandler.
Patty Mills and J.J. Barea are two of the best all-hustle and heart guards in the league.
Dirk and Monta scored 34 each, Aminu had 15, Barea 11 and Devin 10.
Mavericks playing Barea like it’s four years ago.
Here comes J.J. Barea. Mavs +15 with him on the floor in the first half. Need a spark here.
PGs Raymont Felton, Devin Harris and J. J. Barea are 6 of 14 with 14 pts, 10 9 reb., 10 assists and only 2 turnovers. Nice package
This tornado warning in Dallas is actually for J.J. Barea

Would be nice if Dallas put Rondo back in. Rockets having a tough time stopping J.J. Barea. Mavs up 52-49. Time to put Harden back in.
Barea has been huge. Mavs don't seem to miss whathisname.
When listing the WC point guards we knew would make the Rockets miss Pat Beverley, I failed to list Barea. My bad.
Using history as a indicator of what the plan may be tonight: In games missed by Rondo this season, Mavs started Barea in 7, Felton in 2.
Devin Harris (toe) is probable for Game 3. Barea, Felton and Harris will do PG duties now that Rondo (back) is gone.
Rondo out means more mins for the bro @JJbareapr 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽
Spurs were one win away from facing a team that plays Ray Felton, JJ Barea and the corpse of Dirk Nowitzki down the stretch.
J.J. Barea is going to be such a star in Puerto Rican soap operas when he retires from the NBA.
Not a good day for Barea flops
Jet Terry draws the foul on JJ Barea and has a chance for a three-point play.
Rockets and Mavs in a grind game, Houston up 67-64 mid 3Q on TXA21. Harden with 20. Monta leads Mavs w/ 15. Barea 9 pts
If Carlisle wins this game with Felton, Barea and RJ, give him the goddamn keys to Dallas and the state of Texas.
J.J. Barea guarded James Harden for a possession and nobody flopped?!?!?!
Another foul on Rondo. Has four in 10 minutes. Barea coming to get him. Carlisle might prefer a vaudeville hook.
That's two fouls and a technical on Rajon Rondo in 34 seconds to start the half. Here comes JJ Barea.
Not just Rondo/Barea decision. Rondo or Aminu. Rondo/Aminu was -37 in 242 min. ORtg (97.1) worst among Mavs' 56 2-man lineups (min: 200 min)
Carlisle playing Ray Felton and JJ Barea together is maybe third in randomest lineup combination contest tonight.
Felton has to be out there as a floor spacer. Barea has to create. Yes, I'm saying these things April.
Barea is the best pound for pound flopper of all time
Plus-minus so far this series: Rajon Rondo minus-29 in 32 minutes J.J. Barea plus-18 in 27 minutes
The Dirk-Amare-Barea-Monta lineup defensive adventure
The play of I. Thomas, A. Brooks and JJ Barea in the playoffs all speak to the Bryce Cotton having a chance to be NBA player
There was zero chance Barea was leaving that moment without a foul. BK
Lineups that involve Barea as the third best shooter make me sad. I don't think anything can be done about that. But just sad.
Barea gives Mavs a lift with 6 pts off bench, Rockets leading 35-25 with 8:53 left 2Q on TXA21
Playoff Barea. I'm THRILLED.
Latinoamericanos en PO: Barea, Manu, Prigioni, Duncan, Horford, Villanueva, Tiago, Leandrinho, Nené, Caboclo, Nogueira, Vásquez y Gutiérrez
