Vince Carter playing well now for Mavs
Vince Carter continues to prove that he was a solid offseason acquisition for the Dallas Mavericks.
In Wednesday's 105-95 win at Denver, Carter scored 17 points, collected eight assists, grabbed five rebounds, had two steals and a blocked shot in a superb all-around effort against the Nuggets.
"Vince Carter was a problem for them,'' coach Rick Carlisle said. "He's a Hall of Fame caliber player.
"He still has something left in his tank to help us win games. He played a central role in this game.''
Carter was 7-of-12 from the field, including 3-of-7 from three-point range. He hit back-to-back three-pointers that gave the Mavs an 81-64 lead with 6:07 remaining in the third quarter.
