J.J. Barea values the triumph over Indiana amid the chaos that the Mavericks live

The Mavericks needed something on a day like this Monday, it was a victory.
The 109-103 victory over the Indiana Pacers, as guard José Juan Barea assured, is pure oxygen for a Mavericks who played their first home game in almost a month and, to top it off, they did it in the middle of a scandal outside of the stave in which the organization is accused of inappropriate work behavior.
“Here, in the house, it is very important to come and play hard,” said the Puerto Rican. “Win a game here at home, in front of our fans, who are always in support of us. It’s also good for team morale, to have a little more energy all week. ”
Barea was one of the most intensely played against the Pacers by scoring 19 points and adding nine assists. More important, as Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle pointed out, is that the Puerto Rican remains the team’s engine.
“His energy is always there, at all times,” Carlisle said after the game. “(José Juan) certainly helped us win. We needed to win for many reasons. We need to generate something of good moment. We had some games, but nothing compares to winning.
“And J.J. It is still one of the spark plugs that every night allows us the possibility of winning. It was a good day for the Mavericks, “added the strategist.
The day of the Mavericks (19-42) began with the presentation of Cynthia Marshall as the new president and executive director of the club, in the middle of the scandal they have been going through since the previous week after accusations of sexual harassment of several former employees in the magazine Sports Illustrated, in addition to others for domestic violence, headed by the former principal reporter of the team’s website.
The triumph, after consecutive defeats against the Los Angeles Lakers and the Utah Jazz after the All-Star break, tasted great in Dallas.
