Monta Ellis Scores 31 Points to Keep Mavs Alive

The Dallas Mavericks and Monta Ellis will live to fight another day behind his 31 points in Game 4 to avoid a sweep for the higher seeded Rockets. “Anything is possible,” Mavs guard Monta Ellis said after Sunday night’s 121-109 Game 4 victory at American Airlines Center. “We just got to take it one game at a time.” “We can’t play loose, the pressure is still on us...

The Dallas Mavericks have a lot to worry about

The only positive I can point out for the Mavericks at this point is that Dirk has found his groove again. During their three game win streak he averaged 20.3 points per game on 52.4% shooting. Nowitzki has had his fair share of problems this year, between his age and ailing elbow, but he is not done just yet. However, it seems the countless other struggles that the Dallas Mavericks...

Do Mavericks have a Monta Ellis problem?

The Dallas Mavericks need Monta Ellis to consistently make shots if they want to consistently win games, and neither is happening right now. Ellis is 7-for-31 in his last two outings, and off nights have become a regular occurence since the All-Star break. In early March, he finished 5-for-20 in a blowout loss to the Portland Trail Blazers, then went 2-for-14 against the Golden State...

The NBA All-Star Game: Who got snubbed?

It’s here, the 65th annual round ball classic. Last night, the coaches’ choices for the East and West reserves were announced and the rosters are set for the 2015 NBA All-Star Game. This mid-season showcase is supposed to represent the best of the NBA season’s first half. But, before getting on my soapbox regarding the fan vote, I actually want to congratulate them. The fans...

Where Do The Dallas Mavericks Go From Here?

What should the Dallas Mavericks do this offseason? The Dallas Mavericks had a great bounce back year. After going to the playoffs for 12 straight seasons from 2001-2012, the Mavericks failed to make the playoffs in 2013. But that didn’t mean this team was going into rebuilding mode. The Monta Ellis pickup may have been one of the smartest and impactful moves from last year’s...
