Monta Ellis' clutch spree ends with a miss

MEMPHIS – The play that worked to perfection in Portland got Monta Ellis another great look at a potential game-winning buzzer-beater. This time, however, the home team celebrated once the buzzer sounded. Ellis missed a wide-open 18-footer in the final second of overtime, landing the Dallas Mavericks in the West’s 8 seed after a 106-105 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. The Mavs ran the same play as they did when Ellis drilled a buzzer-beater to beat the Portland Trail Blazers on Dec.

Monta Ellis: 'I love proving people wrong'

DALLAS – His critics have been quieted, but Monta Ellis can still hear them. Nobody refers to Ellis as an analytics antihero anymore or calls him a selfish gunner who values volume scoring over winning after he’s played a critical role in the Dallas Mavericks returning to the playoffs. But Ellis distinctly remembers all those who doubted whether he could be a valuable member of a winning franchise, present company included. “That’s why I go out every night and play this game of basketball – for my teammates and this organization – because all of them critics,” Ellis said...

Loving, hating and appreciating the Monta Ellis experience

Monta Ellis is the most infuriating player I've ever watched on the Dallas Mavericks. In the end, I probably wouldn't have it any other way. Monta Ellis takes a pass from Devin Harris in the left corner. He had just knocked down a three from the exact same spot on the previous play. He lines it up and splashes it home. The Phoenix Suns lead, which seemed insurmountable just moments ago, is now down to five midway through the third quarter. It's at this point and time that I love Monta Ellis with all of my heart. The funny thing is, maybe 20 minutes ago, I hated Monta Ellis. With every fiber...

Dirk, Monta lead Mavs back to playoffs

DALLAS – Missing the playoffs was a bizarre, sickening feeling for Dirk Nowitzki last season, when his Dallas Mavericks had a dozen-year postseason streak snapped. It’s a way too familiar feeling for Monta Ellis, whose teams made the playoffs only twice in his first eight seasons, and the second time should perhaps have an asterisk attached to it since it came with a sub-.500 Milwaukee squad that he couldn’t wait to escape last summer.

Monta Ellis' toughness sets tone for Mavs

SALT LAKE CITY – For the first time all season, Monta Ellis didn’t bounce back up when one of his drives ended with him hitting the hardwood. Ellis crashed to the court, his tailbone unforgivingly breaking his high-speed fall, when Utah center Derrick Favors delivered a hard foul in the first quarter. He stayed on the floor, flat on his back, for several seconds. The Dallas Mavericks called a timeout to give Ellis a little extra time to recover.

Monta Ellis takes a licking, keeps on ticking

Monta Ellis came down hard on his backside in the first quarter of Tuesday’s 95-83 Dallas Mavericks victory over Utah. He writhed in pain briefly, got up and walked it off. He then hit one of two free throws and …
