Monta Ellis helped carry the team through the late stages, putting up 23 points on 10-of-18 shooting. Ian Mahinmi tied a career-high on 19 points.

Willie Cauley-Stein posted 21 points here, and DeMarcus Cousins logged 20 points with 12 rebounds.
Meanwhile, Dallas has lost three in a row and 10 of their last 12. They’re out of the playoff scenario at No. 9 in the West, trailing Houston by a half-game.
