Mavericks’ Harris rediscovers zest

Devin Harris was a young lottery pick the last time he helped the Dallas Mavericks have an answer for the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA playoffs. Eight years, three trades and one toe operation later, he’s doing it again. Harris is even the leading scorer for Dallas – yes, ahead of Dirk Nowitzki – with the first-round series tied heading into today’s Game 3 in Dallas ( 1:30 p.m., TNT). Harris was in his second season in 2006 when his speed changed the series and the Mavericks knocked off the top-seeded Spurs in seven games. Now, Harris, 31, has offensive help from Monta Ellis and a defensive stopper in Shawn Marion on his side. – Associated Press
