Barea, Aminu become starters; spark Mavs in Game 4 win

If Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle never inserted J.J. Barea into the starting lineup in Game 4 of the 2011 NBA Finals, there's a good chance LeBron James would have three championship rings instead of two. Last night, Carlisle went to the same well four years later, removing Barea from the bench and making him Dallas' starting point guard.
