Dennis Smith Jr. made his return from injury to help Dallas to a 17-point win over Detroit on Wednesday night. Smith scored 15 points, grabbed five rebounds and threw five assists in his usual spot in the starting lineup. He logged 21 minutes while Yogi Ferrell kept the lion’s share, with 31.
Eleven guys got at least 13 minutes for Rick Carlisle. Ferrell and JJ Barea each scored double-digits off the bench and Dwight Powell had nine in a strong showing for the second unit.
Harrison Barnes led the way with 25 points. It was just Dallas’ first win in its last four games and second in its last eight. Only twice have the Mavericks won two games in a a row this season and never have they won three. Dallas is in Atlanta after this one.
Kelly Olynyk returned to his old stomping grounds to drop a career-high 32 points on the team that drafted him in Miami’s one-point upset win in Boston on Wednesday. Olynyk went 12-for-15 (including 6-for-8 from three) that included a monster slam over Jaylen Brown. He grabbed seven boards and committed five personal fouls in an especially active game for him.
The Heat’s win is stunning considering the bodies it was missing. Hassan Whiteside has been out, as has Justise Winslow. James Johnson went down earlier this week with an ankle sprain and Goran Dragic has been dealing with an injury that has forced him to miss a couple games this week, too.
Those are four potential starters, if not four of Miami’s best six or seven players.
The Heat’s defense showed up, though. Kyrie Irving dropped 33 but no other Celtic could get going. Al Horford and Aron Baynes combined to shoot 2-for-15 from the field and four of Boston’s six reserves went scoreless. Marcus Smart did score 15 on nine three-point shot attempts, however.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Miami Heat NBA Prediction: give me Dallas on the road.
This is a letdown spot for Miami after the big win in Boston. The Heat is still way too undermanned and should have a competitive game on its hands against a Dallas team that has shown some stuff lately.
