Roddy Beaubois starts at point guard

DALLAS -- Roddy Beaubois has played precious little point guard in his NBA career.

He'll get a heavy dose tonight with Jason Kidd resting his 38-year-old legs.

Beaubois will start at point guard with J.J. Barea coming off the bench. Beaubois vs. Denver's Ty Lawson, a battle of blurs, should be fun to watch.

DeShawn Stevenson gets the start at shooting guard. Brendan Haywood will replace Tyson Chandler at center.

This is the 21st starting lineup the Mavs have used this season.
