Monta Ellis led all scorers with 38 points last night as the Mavericks beat the Spurs in Rajon Rondo’s debut with Dallas. Ellis scored 11 points in the final four minutes of the game, as the Mavs mounted a comeback. He was 15-for-23 from the field on the night. And afterwards, when asked about his clutch-time heroics, he shrugged it off by saying, “I guess it’s just in my blood.” From Bryan Gutierrez of ESPN Dallas, via Twitter:
Monta Ellis on taking over in crunch time: "I guess it's just in my blood." Parsons said he's 1 of the best clutch players he's played with.
