so the small general (AJ )rested our three top contributors to the maverick wins i.e Dirk Josh howard and Stackhouse out of the lineup against warriors huh ? I checked hukos on the roaster and it shows. Nowitzki and Stackhouse wereon bench while Howard wasn’t expected to show for the game then tena our ka major Center dampier who’s nursing a strained right shoulder, also was sidelined.
Coach’s decision to rest two All-Stars and his top reserve greatly improved the Warriors’ chances for their fifth straight victory over Dallas. It also helped Golden State’s hopes of clinching a playoff spot and a probable first-round rematch with the Mavericks mmmmhmm TRICKY!

From how it looks ,Johnson’s decision showed the Mavericks obviously aren’t shaking with fear over a potential playoff meeting with the Warriors, who have been among the few NBA clubs with consistent success against Dallas over the last few years.
