Monta Ellis had his biggest performance of the season in the Dallas Mavericks’ most important game.
In the Mavericks’ big win against the Phoenix Suns, Monta “Have It All” Ellis really did have it all.
He tied his season high 37 points on 15-23 fg (3-4 3pt), which is his fifth 30+ point game this season. He also added 4 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals, and drew an important charge call on P.J. Tucker.
Most importantly, Ellis was in attack mode all game. He also attacked the bask and finished inside countless times. With Dirk Nowitzki only tallying 2 points in the first half, the Mavericks needed Ellis to be as aggressive and assertive as he was.
He did struggle with 5 turnovers and 4-7 free throw shooting, but without Ellis, the Mavericks would not have escaped with the win.
