Eddie Jones returns to starting 5

Eddie Jones returned to the starting lineup after a 17-game absence tonight. Should things go well, expect to see Jones, Devin Harris, Josh Howard, Dirk Nowitzki and Erick Dampier together for some time.

It was obvious this morning Jason Terry knew he was headed back to sixth man.

“You never know when it could happen, but I’m ready,” he said slyly. “I’m ready for whatever role they put me in. I embrace it. You have to do out there with a passion and love for the game, especially where we’re at now as a team. Everyone is healthy now. We really want to put this thing together and get a good rhythm.”

Terry thrived off the bench, averaging 17.4 points through the first 14 games. He averaged a bucket less (15.4) in 11 games as a starter.

“Definitely successful,” he said of his duties as sixth man. “I wouldn’t see it being a problem if I had to go back there and do it again. I’ll be ready.”
