Monta Ellis hits the game-winner to beat Blazers (VIDEO)

Dec 8, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

Coming into Saturday night’s game against Dallas, the Blazers had used the top-ranked offense in the league to get out to a 17-3 start to the season, best in the Western Conference.

Portland’s defense is ranked just 20th, however, and playing against a Mavericks team whose offense is ranked fourth and can score almost as well, that sets you up for a shootout that can result in being anyone’s to win.

Monta Ellis made sure the Mavericks came out on top, getting loose from the defense of Wesley Matthews and hitting a shot from 21 feet out at the buzzer to seal it.

Dallas shot 52.9 percent from the field and improved to 13-8 with the victory.

    Monta has been excellent for Dallas. Seriously, Rick Carlisle is very underrated.

    Thought Dallas would be tough to knock out the playoffs last year, thing is they didn’t make it. Good for Ellis, he has been a plus player for them.

    Real talk, for all the flak Ellis has recieved over the years, he has really been doing it up for the Mavs in his first year there. Mavs have surprised me this year thus far as well.
