The No. 1 priority (of Mavericks owner Mark Cuban) was to get Harrison Barnes rolling.
“He hasn’t been aggressive enough,” the owner said. “Everybody’s trying to find their role. I mean, he’s been good. But there are times that he’s still deferring.”
Barnes rolled up 34 points, cracking his career high for the second time in six games this season as the Mavericks displayed supreme defensive grit and were able to grind out an 86-75 overtime win against the Milwaukee Bucks.
