Changes needed with Harris and Stack out

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – Being without Devin Harris and Jerry Stackhouse – they rank fourth and fifth among the Mavericks’ top scorers – takes a toll on the offense. As the point guard, Harris is also responsible to getting others on the floor easy shots.

“That’s a big drop off,” Jason Terry said before facing Detroit on Sunday afternoon. “When you’ve got two of your big guns out, and those are big guns, you’ve got to find a way together to make up for the lost ground.”

Terry has assumed the starting point-guard duties, a role his quite familiar with, despite coming off the bench most of the season.

“It’s nothing different than what I did when I was starting a year-and-a-half ago,” he said. “Nothing new. That’s the thing you’ve got to avoid doing, is changing your mindset. When you do that you start to have indecision and once you have indecision, you’re not the same player.”
