Elton Brand surprisingly came off the bench on Sunday and had 12 points and three rebounds in just 17 minutes, as little known Bernard James got the random start tonight.

We're guessing that Rick Carlisle was trying to send Brand and Chris Kaman a message tonight, as James played just 11 minutes (as did Kaman). If you recently picked up Brand just hang onto him to see how this plays out. We're guessing his benching is temporary.
