Stack starts and Jet sits

Jerry Stackhouse opened in the starting lineup, the 19th different opening five used by the Mavs this season. The first group: Stackhouse and Jason Kidd in the backcourt, with Josh Howard, Dirk Nowitzki and Erick Dampier up front.

Jason Terry is coming off the bench for the first time since Feb. 20 after making eight straight starts. Avery Johnson had recently tabbed Terry the permanent starter with Kidd.

Brandon Bass, Devean George and Malik Allen all came into the game before Terry, who checked in at the 3:41 mark of the first quarter.

Juwan Howard, Tyronn Lue and Eddie Jones are on the inactive list. In his search for a consistent backup center, Johnson wants to get a good look at Jamaal Magloire tonight.
