Five observations as we head into Wednesday night's games.

Half a dime on the rest of the league: 1. Dallas' shooting guard shuffle took another turn Tuesday, and I think the Mavs might stick with this arrangement for more than 24 hours. Jason Terry started in the backcourt with Jason Kidd, terminating the idea of making Terry a sixth man, and Jerry Stackhouse took most of the spare minutes. I know the Mavs were enamored with the idea of bringing Terry's offense off the bench, but he can play more minutes as a starter and it enables him and Kidd to switch assignments on D.
