At 15.1 minutes per game, Jefferson is receiving less playing time than he did last season with the Utah Jazz (27 per game), but he's still proven capable of being a solid contributor when needed. Getting the start on Sunday and playing 33 minutes, he contributed a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, scoring in double figures for the first time since Feb. 5.
Kidd-Gilchrist scored 15 points and added six rebounds for the Hornets.
The Mavericks won 92-81 to move to 38-20, sixth in the Western Conference.
