Devin Harris is like the kid who just got his driver's license and the keys
to a new car. Only he's no rookie driver and the guy in the passenger seat is
no longer his dad giving harsh critiques, but a familiar sidekick.

Devin Harris像是一個剛拿到駕照跟新車鑰匙的小孩。唯一不同的是他不是一個新手駕駛
然後他駕駛位旁邊的不是老爸一直給很刻薄的評語,而是他最熟悉的伙伴。


If the Mavericks' preseason opener showed anything, it's that coach Avery
Johnson is serious about letting Harris behind the wheel of the Mavericks'
machine. It also showed the shooting-guard spot is a wide-open competition.

如果小牛開季熱身賽有秀出任何東西,就是AJ很認真的要讓Harris當驅動小牛這機器的
後輪。然後也秀出SG這位置是公開競爭爭搶的。


Jerry Stackhouse was the starter in the Mavericks' 88-67 win over San Antonio
on Tuesday night at American Airlines Center. He's been the Mavericks' sixth
man for the last three seasons. But his history with Harris prompted Johnson
to start the pair in the backcourt, with Jason Terry coming off the bench.

Jerry Stackhouse是今晚對馬刺的先發。他過去三年在小牛都是當第六人的。但他跟
Harris一起搭配的歷史使AJ讓他們打先發,讓Terry從板凳出發。


Starting or relieving makes no difference to Stackhouse. But like all
players, he has teammates with whom he meshes better.

先發或是替補對Stackhouse都沒差,但跟大部份球員一樣,他有比較嚙合的隊友。


"I don't have a preference [about starting], but I do like playing with
Devin," Stackhouse said. "The numbers don't lie. We work pretty well
together. That's not to say I don't like playing with Jet. I can facilitate
some things with him, but at the same time, when I'm with Devin, he helps
facilitate things for me, which is nice."

"我不在乎先發,但我很喜歡跟Devin一起玩(....一起打球啦^^)"Stackhouse說。"數據
是不會說謊的。我跟他合作的很好。這不是說我不喜歡跟Jet一起打。我覺得我能幫助他
一些東西,但一樣的,我覺得我跟Devin在一起時,他可以幫助我,我覺得這樣很好。"

Johnson說他有一些計畫要輪替一些固定的球員。


"Right now, Stack's getting the most minutes there," he said. "And once we
get Eddie Jones healthy, he'll get a look there."

"現在,Stack會在那得到最多上場時間,"他說。"一旦Eddie Jones健康,我們會在那
看到他的表現。"


Harris, meanwhile, made the first small step toward entrenching himself as
the Mavericks' permanent point guard. At 24, he is entering his fourth season
and his first as the clear-cut starter at the point. He also has a new
contract and the utmost confidence from Johnson. He had eight points and two
assists in 16 minutes as the Mavericks piled up 24 points in the paint in the
first three quarters before deep reserves took over in the fourth.

Harris為當小牛固定先發PG踏出了第一步。在24歲,他即將進入他第四季然後當一個
固定先發。同時他也有了一個新的合約和AJ對他的信心。他在16分鐘有八分和兩助攻,
小牛在替補上場前三節在油漆區得了24分。


season, at least until crunch time.

Harris還要求要球進攻,一個他希望在大部份季賽時間都能做的事,至少在關鍵時刻前。


"Close score, fourth quarter, he's still going to bark," Harris said.

"很接近的比數,第四節,他還是會攻擊,"Harris說。


As for teaming with Stackhouse in the starting lineup instead of Terry?

至於跟Stackhouse一起當先發而非Terry?


"He's been my No. 2 guy the whole time I've been here, so I'm jelling with
him quite well," Harris said. "It's not that big of a change for us."

"他一直都是我來這的的第二人,我會跟他在一起一陣子,"Harris說。"對我們來說不是
很大的改變。"


Johnson said he likes what he saw of Harris' flow for a preseason opener.

Johnson說他喜歡他在開季預賽看到的流暢的Harris。


"He's better in this game at the start of the season than he was the last two
seasons combined," Johnson said.

"他這場打的比他前兩季加起來都還好,"Johnson說。


Injury update: Dirk Nowitzki tweaked an ankle in the second half, but Johnson
said he was fine.

傷兵報告:Nowitzki在下半場扭到了足踝,但AJ說他沒事。


Moe Ager had a head-to-head collision with a Spur, but other than a little
soreness, he said he should not miss any practice or game time.

Ager跟一個馬刺球員有一個頭對頭的對撞,除了酸以外,他說他沒事,他不會錯過任何
練習時間或比賽。


Words of wisdom: There is no better Maverick at putting things in perspective
than Stackhouse. When asked about the Spurs' trip to their title last season,
he believes the Mavericks' first-round loss was helpful to the Spurs.

智慧的語言:說到洞察力沒有任何小牛球員比Stackhouse好。當提到馬刺去年的冠軍,
他相信小牛的第一輪淘汰對馬刺有很大幫助。


"They had, as we would see it, an easy road," Stackhouse said. "Really, their
main threat was Phoenix, who imploded and messed up their chances. But hey,
take nothing away from them. You've still got to go win it, and they did
that."

"他有,如我們看到的,一段輕鬆簡單的路,"Stackhouse說。"真的,他們主要威脅是
太陽,但太陽內爆然後搞壞自己的機會。但不要小看他們。你還是要出去贏,然後他們
做到了。"


Briefly: San Antonio's Brent Barry saw a sign outside American Airlines Center promoting an upcoming dinosaur exhibit and couldn't resist the temptation of a good one-liner. "I thought they were talking about our team,"
said the 12-year veteran, referring to the fact that the Spurs have one of
the oldest squads in the league. ... The Spurs had their preseason meeting
with referees Tuesday. The refs go over situations that will be emphasized
this season. The Mavs' session is Friday in Chicago.

Briefly:Brent Barry看到美航外面的一個標示說要舉辦恐龍展,他忍不住去說了一句話
。"我以為他在說我們,因為我們是聯盟最老的隊伍之一。"馬刺今天舉辦了第一次與
裁判的會議。裁判說明這一季將要強調的重點。小牛是星期五,在芝加哥。
