Dallas Falls to Brooklyn, 104-94

Dallas drops its second straight game, this time to a 23-33 Brooklyn Nets squad. Dallas struggled in the second half, and missed Tyson Chandler terribly, en route to a 104-94 loss to the Brooklyn Nets. The Mavs came out with one of the most ridiculous starting lineups this season, due to Tyson being out of the lineup, with Rondo, Barea, Ellis, Jefferson and Dirk making up the first five Mavs out on the court. Despite maintaining a lead for the majority of the first half, Dallas just couldn't pull away. After the Mavs worked their way to a 39-31 lead with 7:11 left in the second quarter the...

Rondo benched by Rick Carlisle, after heated exchange

Thanks Danny Ainge, and I don't mean thanks for trading Rondo. When Rondo was first traded to Dallas it seemed like Ainge was doing Rondo a favor, and doing the Celtics a favor. Well, Rondo is in a bad situation in Dallas. The chemistry isn't there, and Rondo is being painted as an unruly player once again. Carlisle had the highly publicized benching of Rajon Rondo in January, and I don't feel like he wanted him in Dallas. The move doesn't make sense when you have Monta Ellis, who dominates the ball. I hope Rondo bolts from Dallas this summer. Get out of town!

Carlisle: Monta Ellis should be an All-Star - Monta Ellis (G) Dallas Mavericks

Head coach Rick Carlisle said on Friday that Monta Ellis should have been selected for the All-Star game rather than Dirk Nowitzki.

Ellis hurting, but still finds way to contribute

DALLAS -- Monta Ellis most definitely did not have it all Wednesday night. However, two days after straining his left hip, Ellis had enough to contribute to the Dallas Mavericks grinding out an eyeball-aching 87-82 victory over the Utah Jazz to enter the All-Star break on a winning note. Ellis obviously lacked the explosiveness that's such a critical ingredient to him being the Mavs' leading scorer and playmaker. He was an offensive nonfactor, finishing with only seven points on 1-of-6 shooting and three assists.

Carlisle: It’s “possible” Monta Ellis will play tonight vs. Utah

The Dallas Mavericks aren’t sure about Monta Ellis’ availability tonight against Utah, but by reading the tea leaves, it looks like he’s going to play. He’s got a lot of pride in that streak of 218 consecutive games played. He …

Monta Ellis (hip) game-time decision vs. Jazz

DALLAS – Mavericks shooting guard Monta Ellis, who suffered a strained left hip in Monday’s loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, is considered a game-time decision Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz. Ellis, who averages a team-high 20 points per game, participated in the Mavs’ morning shootaround, wearing a black compression sleeve on his left leg. An MRI on Tuesday morning did not reveal any serious damage. “It’s possible that he could play, but we’re going to have to see tonight,” coach Rick Carlisle said.

Gameday: Dallas Mavericks vs. Utah Jazz

The Mavericks, sans Tyson Chandler and possibly Monta Ellis too, will go for a third win against the young Jazz days before the All-Star break. The Jazz, sitting at 19-33, are the kind of team the Mavericks (35-19) have had consistent success against this season. Dallas is 22-4 against teams with below .500 records in 2014-2015. But with three starters injured, the Mavs will probably feel fortunate to get to All-Star weekend with another win tonight. Defensive stalwart Tyson Chandler is out with an injured ankle and shooting guard Monta Ellis is doubtful with a hurt hip. Point...
