Brandan Wright, Mike James start for Mavs

DALLAS -- Believe it or not, there are starting lineup combinations that Rick Carlisle hasn't tried yet this season.

Carlisle is going with a new one -- the Mavs' 19th of the season -- for the rematch against the Rockets. Center Brandan Wright and point guard Mike James are in; Chris Kaman and Darren Collison will come off the bench.

This is the 37-year-old James' first start in the NBA since March 25, 2009 with the Wizards.

The opportunity for revenge is obviously motivation for the Mavs after being humiliated in Houston a few nights ago. The box score from the 136-103 rout was taped to the white board at the front of the Mavs' locker room.

"NOT TONIGHT," was scrawled in red ink across the sheet of paper.
