DALLAS -- Jae Crowder got the starting nod at small forward during Monday's 102-94 loss to the Orlando Magic in place of Shawn Marion, who got the night off.
But from the looks of it, Crowder took the night off, too.
Crowder played 20 minutes and 30 seconds and finished with just two points (1-of-3 shooting) and one rebound. It was not one of his best performances, to say the least.
"I felt great out there tonight,'' Crowder said. "With me being a starter tonight I knew I wasn't going to get many shots as I normally get coming off the bench.
"I just tried to play within the system and play good defense, and that's what I can do to help the team.''
