DALLAS -- Monta Ellis turned in a solid performance Friday night to help the Dallas Mavericks to a 107-103 win over the Sacramento Kings at American Airlines Center.
Ellis tallied 11 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter and also finished with no turnovers for the first time in a game this season as the Mavs padded their record to 27-21. In the two previous games Ellis had 17 points and 12 turnovers while looking shakey at best.
The Mavs desperately needed a game like this from Ellis, who had just four points in the first half against the Kings, but finished the night 6-of-10 from the field.
