He finished with eight points — going 3 for 4 from the field — and six rebounds in 20 minutes.

The 34-year-old has averaged 22.9 points and 8.3 rebounds in his career. He led the Mavericks to the 2011 NBA title, but struggled last season while dealing with the knee injury. He took some time off midway through last season to rehabilitate and finished with a 21.6 scoring average — his lowest since 1999-2000 — in 62 games.
