Jose Juan Barea Actually Helps Mavs Win a Game
I've been rough on the Mavs' J.J. Barea.
For being no taller than me. For looking like the runner-up in the Minyard ball boy contest.

But lookie here, the little fella just made a big impact.
I'll be damned if he didn't play a scrappy, productive game against the Lakers Friday night. And then last night, in a game the Mavs trailed the crappy Clippers by 15 in the fourth quarter before rallying for a dramatic win, J.J. calmly, purposefully sank the game-winning 3-pointer in the final minute.
