Rookie stars headline Mavs-Kings matchup

DALLAS -- When the Dallas Mavericks and Sacramento Kings hook up Friday night at American Airlines Center, plenty of attention will fall on a pair of 19-year-old point guards coming off dazzling NBA debuts.

The Mavericks' Dennis Smith Jr. and the Kings' De'Aaron Fox didn't waste any time making an impact for their respective teams. The two rookies, both lottery picks in this year's draft, flashed considerable potential in competitive losses in their respective openers.

Smith, the ninth pick from North Carolina State, tied for team-high scoring honors with 16 points and dished out a game-high 10 assists in Dallas' 117-111 setback to Atlanta. Smith was the first rookie to start a season opener for the Mavs since Devin Harris in 2004-05, and the first with a point-assist double-double in his first game since Jason Kidd in 1994-95.
