James, who has played for 11 NBA teams in 11 years and was playing for the Texas Legends in the D-League when the Mavericks signed him to a 10-day contract in early January, led the team in scoring with 19 points and assists with five.
“I thought he played a good all-around game,’’ said Dallas coach Rick Carlisle. “His defense was solid. ... He had timely shot making and made good plays.’’
The Jazz were led by Kanter, who had a fine game off the bench with 17 points in 21 minutes, while six others joined him in double figures, including Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap with 15 apiece, Hayward with 13, Randy Foye with 12, Burks with 11 and Mo Williams with 10.
The Jazz shot 51.2 percent from the field, but were topped by Dallas’ 54.3 percent, including 9 of 18 from 3-point range.
Now it’s back to Utah for the Jazz, who face Philadelphia on Monday night at EnergySolutions Arena at 7 p.m.
“We can’t get the games back that we lost,’’ said Corbin. “We’re going to lay everything we have out there for 12 games and see what happens. We’re not going to lay down we’re going to fight and scratch for every little thing we can get and see where it ends up.’’
