DALLAS -- Just in case anyone didn't know it, coach Rick Carlisle revealed a piece of news about the Dallas Mavericks after Thursday's practice.
"We’re not constructed to where we can just throw it all on one guy,'' Carlisle said. "As great as Dirk (Nowitzki) is we've got to have 13 guys in uniform ready to go at it each night.''
Carlisle expects to go deep into his bench Friday night at 7:30 when the Mavs (36-26) host the Portland Trail Blazers (42-19).
"There’s a chance we go 11-12 deep,'' Carlisle said. "We did last night (in Denver).
"And so everybody’s got to be ready to go.''
