Monta Ellis’ All-Star snub a testament to Mavericks’ balance

The Dallas Mavericks were disappointed that Monta Ellis’ name wasn’t called when the Western Conference All Stars were announced. Ellis? He was unfazed, saying he wouldn’t stress out about the snub. And, in reality, he and the Mavericks have bigger …

Minor adjustment overcomes Rondo's lack of spacing, gets Monta an easy layup

We're trying something new -- myself and possibly a few other writers are going to occasionally highlight things we see Dallas do that we like, but aren't really worthy of a full post. They can all be found in this stream. The Mavericks adore the high pick-and-roll with Monta Ellis. Of all his NBA gifts, his quickness stands out, and starting him 30 feet from the basket has been one of Dallas' pet plays since last year. This play worked exceedingly well with a dead-eye shooter at the other guard position, but one consequence the Mavericks understood when they made the Rajon Rondo trade is...

Mavs melt late, waste Monta Ellis' 36 points

NEW ORLEANS – This magnificent Monta Ellis performance had a miserable ending for the Dallas Mavericks. They couldn’t even get the ball to their go-to guy when they had a chance to win the game. Heck, the Mavs couldn’t get the ball inbounds, period. And unlike the New Orleans Pelicans on the previous possession, the Mavs didn’t get any assistance from a whistle. Those final 12.3 seconds, when Murphy’s Law seemed to strike the Mavs, made Sunday’s 109-106 loss especially tough to swallow.

Monta Ellis might be the most clutch player in the NBA this season

Ellis leads the pack by a lot in the final minute of close games. On Tuesday, Monta Ellis missed a shot at the fourth quarter buzzer of a tied game. It stood out specifically because Ellis has been so good down the stretch of good games. His only true 'game winner' is this insane running jumper against Milwaukee, but plenty more clutch moments from this half-finished season stand out -- including several in the double-overtime thriller against the Bulls. He's just been deadly when games tightens up and the Mavericks need someone to step up. This graph defines crunch time as the final...

3 Points: Monta's place in All-Star pecking order

ESPNDallas.com columnist Jean-Jacques Taylor and MavsOutsider.com editor-in-chief Bryan Gutierrez join Tim MacMahon each week to run a three-man weave on a few questions on the minds of Mavericks fans. 1. How many guards in the West are more deserving of an All-Star invitation than Monta Ellis? Gutierrez: James Harden should be a starter, but Kobe Bryant’s popularity sabotages that. Klay Thompson gets overshadowed a bit by Stephen Curry, but he’s one of the better all-around guards in the league as he continues to develop as a defender.

Mavericks starting five travel the Oregon Trail and terrible things happen

Do our fearless, handsome fivesome of Rondo, Monta, Parsons, Dirk and Tyson have what it takes to get to Oregon City? Let's find out. If you didn't know, The Internet Archive just released a ton of old video games online, which you can play for free. I've been playing the Oregon Trail all day (don't tell anyone), and then I saw this, done by Matt Brown over at SB Nation's Ohio State blog Land Grant Holy Land. So, I did something similar over at Frogs O' War, TCU's SB Nation site, and now, I'm bringing it here. I'm putting the Dallas Mavericks' starting lineup, Rajon Rondo, Monta Ellis,...

Monta Ellis still one of top thieves in NBA, though he’s scaled back his gambling
