Ellis, Nowitzki help Mavericks top host Pacers

Monta Ellis had 23 points and nine rebounds, and Dirk Nowitzki added 18 points as the Dallas Mavericks handed the Indiana Pacers their third home loss of the season, 81-73 on Wednesday night.

George Hill had 14 points, and Lance Stephenson and Danny Granger both scored 13 points for the Pacers (40-12), who have lost two of three.

The Mavericks scored the first six points of the fourth quarter and took a 66-62 lead when Ellis made a free throw with 6:55 remaining.

Brandan Wright scored, Ellis made two more free throws, and Wright made a layup to give the Mavericks a 72-66 edge.
