DALLAS -- Because of offseason surgery on his left foot, Devin Harris' seaosn got off to a slow start.
But the Dallas Mavericks' backcup point guard has more than made up for lost time.
Harris fueled a Mavs' comeback Sunday as he poured in a season-high 20 points and added five assists and four steals as the Mavs just shwed some aggressivness again in defeating the Indiana Pacers 105-94 at American Airlines Center.
Harris had 15 of his points in the second half when he converted 3-of-4 shots from 3-point range.
“He was active defensively and he was hitting shots and he was making plays, and he brings an extra dimension to our guard rotation,'' coach Rick Carlisle said. "I thought all of our guards played well, but he stood out because he had the ball a lot and he made really good decisions and timely plays at both ends all night.''
Harris was just glad to see some of his shots find their intended destinations. In the previous six games before Sunday, Harris was just 8-of-33 from the field.
"It was very frustrating,'' Harris said of his shooting woes. "It was good to see a couple go in.''
Harris didn't play his first game of the season until Jan. 18 when he got in for 17 minutes during a home loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.
"This is kind of the second phase of his comeback,'' Carlisle said. "He's gone through about six weeks of being able to play in games and work on rhythm and conditioning and stuff, and that was his second wind, I think.
"He's just starting to feel better, he’s working hard. He comes in and shoots at night, he's putting the work in and it’s obviously paying off.''
