Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork. Patrick Beverley Jersey .com) - Dirk Nowitzki scored 23 points and Monta Ellis contributed a double-double as the Dallas Mavericks dismantled the Los Angeles Lakers, 140-106, on Friday. Ellis netted 20 points on an efficient 7-of-10 shooting to go along with a season-high 10 assists and help the Mavs score more than 100 points for the sixth straight game. Our goal is to play consistent every night, not only at home, but also on the road, Ellis said. Dallas, the NBAs top-scoring team, went up against the worst defense in the league and it showed, as the Mavs put up their highest point total of the season on 51-of-82 (62.2 percent) shooting -- including a blistering 18-of-35 (51.4 percent) clip from beyond the arc. Chandler Parsons deposited 21 points and J.J. Barea added 16 points off the bench for the Mavs, who have won six straight overall and four straight over LA. The Lakers shot a decent 44-for-85 (51.8 percent) from the floor, but they were no match, with Jeremy Lins 18 points leading the way. Kobe Bryant dropped in 17 points on 6-of-22 shooting as Los Angeles had its two-game winning streak snapped. Tonight is a setback, but sometimes you take a couple of steps forward before taking a step back, said Bryant. Sometimes you take a step back before you can take a couple of steps forward. Tonight was a step back. Dallas entered the locker room at half with a nine-point lead, then it opened things up in the third quarter to turn the game into a rout. Ellis scored 12 points -- including three 3-pointers -- during a 14-2 run midway through the quarter that helped the Mavs extend their lead to 90-71. Although Los Angeles made 50 percent of its shots in the period, it allowed Dallas to shoot 14-of-18 from the floor and 6-of-10 from beyond the arc, trailing 110-83 entering the fourth. The Mavs lead swelled to as many as 38 in the fourth. Earlier, Dallas led by two with just over a minute to go in the first when Jae Crowder hit a 3 that started an 11-2 quarter-ending run for a 38-27 lead. The Lakers managed to trim the deficit to 68-59 at the half. Game Notes Dallas scored 20 points off 10 turnovers and had a 54-38 advantage in the paint ...

In the days leading up to the draft, TSN.ca and TSN Radio basketball analyst Duane Watson looks at some of the names that will be headlining the event. Tonight, Michigans Nik Stauskas of Mississauga, Ontario.(SportsNetwork.com) - It may not be as dramatic as Kirk Gibson limping off the bench to hit a home run, but shortstop Hanley Ramirez is certainly endearing himself to Los Angeles Dodgers fans this postseason. The Dodgers and Ramirez try to even their best-of-seven National League Championship Series Tuesday against the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 4 at Dodger Stadium. Ramirez, who missed Game 2 after getting hit in the ribs in the opener, returned to the lineup on Monday despite a hairline fracture and singled in his first at-bat before driving in the final run in Los Angeles 3-0 win. "What can I say? It couldnt be better," said Ramirez, who is batting .455 with seven RBI in the playoffs. "Really happy we got the first win. Just come back (Tuesday) and even up the series." Pitching continued to dominate this series, as Dodgers righty Hyun-Jin Ryu scattered three hits and a walk over seven scoreless innings to help L.A. get back in the series after losing the first two in St. Louis. Of course, only one team has rallied from an 0-2 deficit in the NLCS -- the Cardinals in 1985 against the Dodgers. Adrian Gonzalez and Yasiel Puig ended the Dodgers 22-inning scoreless drought with RBI extra-base hits in the fourth inning, and that was all Ryu and the back end of the Dodgers bullpen needed. "I think the playoffs are a one-day momentum swing. Every day changes with momentum. Right now I feel like weve kind of grabbed it," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. Adam Wainwright, who tossed a complete-game gem in the NLDS closeout game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, surrendered two runs in seven innings to take the loss, while the Cardinals continued to struggle to get things going offensively. As a team, St. Louis is only hitting .134 with seven walks through the first three games. "Were a better club than this," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "It wasnt very characteristic of how we played all season." The nine combined runs in the series thus far are the fewest ever tthrough three games of an LCS. Custom Los Angeles Clippers Jerseys. Now the Dodgers will turn to righty Ricky Nolasco, who was supposed to start Game 4 of the NLDS against Atlanta, but was pulled hours before the start for Clayton Kershaw. Mattingly kind of left the door open to that happening again, only this time he would go with Game 1 starter Zack Greinke on short rest. "As of right now," Mattingly said. "Ricky Nolasco will be pitching tomorrow." Nolasco was terrific after being traded to the Dodgers from Miami in early July and was 8-1 with a 2.07 ERA in his first 12 starts. However, he was winless over his final four starts and allowed 19 runs over 12 innings in his last three outings of the year. "Until somebody says otherwise, Im focused on going out there and pitching tomorrow," Nolasco said. Referring to his conditional starting status, he added, "Those things are out of my control. Im only concentrating on the things I can control." St. Louis, meanwhile, will rely on righty Lance Lynn, who picked up the win in relief in Game 1. Lynn pitched two scoreless innings in that one after yielding five runs in just 4 1/3 innings in his Game 2 loss to the Pirates in the NLDS. "You have two really good offensive teams that havent done much so far, and Ive never been one to be naive to the fact that somebodys probably due," Lynn said. "But when its all said and done, you have to concentrate on all you can take care of, and thats just one pitch at a time. Whoevers in the box, you just try to execute your game plan against them. "We have two great offenses here that haventCgood games here offensively. But as a starting pitcher, you dont want to see it." Lynn has never lost to the Dodgers and is 2-0 with a 2.50 ERA in three starts. To make matters worse for the Cardinals they may be without third baseman David Freese, who left Game 3 with tightness in his calf. The Dodgers were 4-3 against the Cardinals this season.
