When Avery Johnson made Devin Harris his starting point guard, the coach relinquished much of the play calling to Harris. But, that will change some in tonight's home game against Utah as the Mavs try to stem a two-game slide and Harris tries to end his own four-game slump in which he's averaged 7.0 points and 3.4 assists.
Johnson said he'll be calling more of the offensive play sets, at least for now.
"I'm going to call a few more plays now and help us get better in some of the sets I know we need to be in and make sure the ball gets in the right places," Johnson said after Saturday morning's shootaround. "We tried to not do that that, but we just need to kind of do that a little bit more because I always pretty much know where I want the ball to go and it doesn't always get there."
