Delonte West and the Dallas Mavericks quickly resolved Monday's outburst in the locker room following a meeting with Rick Carlisle and Donnie Nelson.

"Most players in this league run on gas," Carlisle said. "Delonte runs on diesel. And so you've got to listen to him, and you've got to understand him. He's a little different."

West played 18 minutes and contributed seven points, four assists and two rebounds Wednesday against Phoenix.

West has bipolar disorder.

"You know exactly what you're getting with D-West," Mark Cuban said. "You just don't know when.

"Delonte will tell you when it's time to hunt, he's the dog you want out there hunting for you; he's the guy you want in the foxhole with you. He's a warrior. The guys love that."
