SCHUYLER DIXON – DALLAS (AP) Monta Ellis has watched Dirk Nowitzki take over plenty of games in the fourth quarter.
This time it was his job to make sure his old teammate didn’t beat his new team.
Ellis scored 17 points in his return to Dallas, Paul George had 18 of his 20 in the second half and the Indiana Pacers extended the Mavericks’ longest losing streak of the season to five games with a 112-105 victory Saturday.
Nowitzki scored 15 of his 30 points in the final quarter, and Dallas twice got within a point after trailing by 11 late in the third. George Hill had the answers for the Pacers, hitting three 3-pointers and getting 10 of his 16 points in the final quarter of the Pacers’ third straight victory.
But Ellis did his part as well, getting two of his team-high seven assists on a couple of key baskets and pushing the lead back to seven late with a three-point play.
He got a warm greeting in his first visit since the end of last season, when he was the first leading scorer not named Nowitzki for Dallas since 2000. He signed with Indiana as a free agent.
“We’ve been the older guys on the team and have a lot of experience in winning situations and losing situations,” said Ellis, who had a team-high seven assists. “You just try to keep the young guys focused and get them to understand the ups and downs in this league, and always think about the next game.”
Nowitzki’s efforts couldn’t stop the longest losing streak for the Mavericks since 2012-13, the only time they have missed the playoffs in since 2000. And they are just three games into a nine-game stretch of opponents currently with winning records.
