Corey Brewer has found court time difficult to find since joining the Dallas Mavericks, but a strong stretch, coupled with some more down time for Jason Kidd, has earned him a start tonight against the Clippers. He will start beside Rodrigue Beaubois, who will fill in for Kidd at point guard, as the Mavericks look at a possible future starting backcourt.
While Kidd will miss his second straight game, center Tyson Chandler will return to the lineup after his own two-game hiatus. Dirk Nowitzki and Shawn Marion are both active and will start at forward. They’ll try to help Chandler contain Blake Griffin.
