Strenghts: NBA body ... very athletic, good vertical ... no history of injuries ... knows how to get past defenders ... attacks the basket relentlessly ... absorbs contact when going to the rim ... has a variety of moves when going to the basket ... good in playing the passing lanes ... not a very emotional player ... decent 1-on-1-defender ... long arms ... good ball handler although he does not have the ball a lot ... likes to run the fast break ... decent mid-range jumpshot... good work ethic ...
Weaknesses: Not a good passer for a guard ... although he can keep up 1-on-1, he is not a good defender ... not a consistent shooter ... not a good three point shooter ... fundamentally raw ... needs to learn how to play more clever ...

Collison leads Mavericks past Bulls
DALLAS (AP) November 28th -- Darren Collison scores 29 points and Chris Kaman adds a double-double to lift the Mavericks past the Bulls in Chicago.
After beating the New York Knicks at home and experiencing two setbacks against the Lakers (86-82 L) and the Sixers (86-104 L) the Mavericks were able to close out November with a road victory in Chicago.
Darren Collison was the man of game scoring 29 points on 12-16 shooting (3-3 3PT) in a close 95-94 win over the Rose-less Bulls. It was also Collison who hit the go-ahead bucket with 34 seconds left in the game to give Dallas the lead. "I'm glad to be back on the court after missing so many games. Great win, too", the former UCLA guard said. Collison had missed the entire month of November before coming back against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Without Derrick Rose, the Bulls showed a good performance in the first half leading by 14 points. But thanks to the decent inside play of Chris Kaman (12 points, 12 rebounds) and Elton Brand (11 points, 7 rebounds) the Mavericks climbed back in the game. Bulls center Joakim Noah had 17 points and 17 rebounds and Nate Robinson scored 15 points, but the tiny guard was not able to tie the game on the last possesion of the game.
The Mavericks (6-10) have a three game road trip ahead of them starting on December 1st against the Clippers followed by Phoenix and Houston before returning back to Dallas to face the Kings.
