Tim MacMahon

Mavs' starting five: JJ Barea, Monta Ellis, Al-Farouq Aminu, Dirk Nowitzki, Tyson Chandler.

Lang Greene

Patty Mills and J.J. Barea are two of the best all-hustle and heart guards in the league.

Dwain Price

Dirk and Monta scored 34 each, Aminu had 15, Barea 11 and Devin 10.

Tim Cato

Tyson-Dirk-Devin-Monta-Barea

Brett Pollakoff

Mavericks playing Barea like it’s four years ago.

Dwain Price

#Rockets lead after the 3rd period 101-99. Monta leads with 24 pts, Dirk has 18, Aminu 12, Barea 11, Devin 10.

Tim MacMahon

Here comes J.J. Barea. Mavs +15 with him on the floor in the first half. Need a spark here.

Dwain Price

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

Mark Followill

Mavs shoot 57% in 1H, Monta Ellis with 20 pts. Dirk w/ 10. JJ Barea 6 pts, 7 dimes. Mavs 72-65 at half vs Rockets on @TXA21. Harden has 18

Tim Cato

This tornado warning in Dallas is actually for J.J. Barea

Chris Vernon

David Hardisty

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.

Jonathan Feigen

Barea has been huge. Mavs don't seem to miss whathisname.

Earl K. Sneed

J.J. Barea is straight ballin'! He has 6 pts, 3 rebs & 5 assists off the bench, and the @Dallas Mavericks lead 52-49 with 6:16 in the half.

Kevin Pelton

Mavericks +10 in J.J. Barea's eight minutes of action. CC @billbarnwell

Jonathan Feigen

When listing the WC point guards we knew would make the Rockets miss Pat Beverley, I failed to list Barea. My bad.

Earl K. Sneed

Barea ties the game at 44-all, and the Rockets call timeout with 9:52 left in the half. 8-2 @Dallas Mavericks run to open the 2nd. #DALvsHOU

Dwain Price

With no Rondo, #Rockets PG Jason Terry can't leave Barea, Devin or Felton wide open on the perimeter and expect them to miss the jump shot.

Mark Followill

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.

Dwain Price

Post Rondo, Mavericks hand heavy duty to Barea, Felton star-telegram.com/sports/nba/dal…

Dwain Price

Devin Harris (toe) is probable for Game 3. Barea, Felton and Harris will do PG duties now that Rondo (back) is gone.

Javier Mojica

Rondo out means more mins for the bro @JJbareapr 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽

Dwain Price

It's a final: #Rockets 111, #Mavs 99. Monta had 24 pts, Barea 13, Tyson 11, Dirk 10.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs were one win away from facing a team that plays Ray Felton, JJ Barea and the corpse of Dirk Nowitzki down the stretch.

Tim MacMahon

J.J. Barea is going to be such a star in Puerto Rican soap operas when he retires from the NBA.

Earl K. Sneed

Barea ends the Rockets' 11-0 run, but Dwight catches another lob. 94-86 Rockets with 7:18 left to play. #DALatHOU

Amin Elhassan

Not a good day for Barea flops

Calvin Watkins

Jet Terry draws the foul on JJ Barea and has a chance for a three-point play.

Mark Followill

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

Tim Cato

If Carlisle wins this game with Felton, Barea and RJ, give him the goddamn keys to Dallas and the state of Texas.

Tim MacMahon

J.J. Barea guarded James Harden for a possession and nobody flopped?!?!?!

Jonathan Feigen

Another foul on Rondo. Has four in 10 minutes. Barea coming to get him. Carlisle might prefer a vaudeville hook.

Tim MacMahon

That's two fouls and a technical on Rajon Rondo in 34 seconds to start the half. Here comes JJ Barea.

Julian Mozo

#NBA @Pablo Prigioni hizo una buena tarea en ataque con paciencia y pases pero sufrió en defensa con la agresividad y velocidad de Barea. Ya ST

Tim MacMahon

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)

Dwain Price

#Rockets lead at the half 53-51. Monta has 11 points, Barea, Aminu and Felton has 6 each. Mavs had 1 turnover in the 2nd quarter.

Paul Flannery

Carlisle playing Ray Felton and JJ Barea together is maybe third in randomest lineup combination contest tonight.

Tim Cato

Felton has to be out there as a floor spacer. Barea has to create. Yes, I'm saying these things April.

Ethan Strauss

Barea is the best pound for pound flopper of all time

Tim MacMahon

Plus-minus so far this series: Rajon Rondo minus-29 in 32 minutes J.J. Barea plus-18 in 27 minutes

Ethan Strauss

The Dirk-Amare-Barea-Monta lineup defensive adventure

David Locke

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

Dwain Price

"They're great at going for steals and gambling, so we have to take care of the ball." -- #Mavs guard J. J. Barea on the #Rockets

Kamenetzky Brothers

There was zero chance Barea was leaving that moment without a foul. BK

Tim Cato

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.

Earl K. Sneed

A nice lift from J.J. Barea off the bench, but the @Dallas Mavericks still trail 35-25 with 8:53 in the half. Mavs are shooting 31%. #DALatHOU

Mark Followill

Barea gives Mavs a lift with 6 pts off bench, Rockets leading 35-25 with 8:53 left 2Q on TXA21

Tim Cato

Playoff Barea. I'm THRILLED.
