DALLAS (AP) — Monta Ellis scored a season-high 30 points and the Dallas Mavericks beat Minnesota 131-117 Saturday night, handing the road-weary Timberwolves their fifth straight loss to finish a six-game trek that included a stop in Mexico City.
Dirk Nowitzki was another of eight players in double figures with 15 as Dallas had a season high in points, two nights after setting a club record with a 53-point win over Philadelphia.
The Timberwolves finished a two-week trip covering more than 5,600 air miles on a back-to-back that started with a franchise-worst, 48-point loss in New Orleans.
Kevin Martin scored a season-high 34 points for Minnesota, which gets three days off before starting a four-game homestand.
