Monta Ellis Beats Portland Trail Blazers with Buzzer-Beater

Dallas Mavericks guard Monta Ellis buried a game-winning buzzer-beater to beat the Portland Trail Blazers, 108-106, Saturday.

Prior to Ellis' game-winning jumper, Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard drained a three with 1.9 seconds left to tie the game at 106. The play was reviewed to see if his feet were behind the line, but there wasn't conclusive evidence to the contrary, so the three stood.

The back-and-forth affair between two Western Conference contenders had a playoff atmosphere and did not disappoint with a thrilling ending.

Ellis sent the Mavs home happy with a statement road win.
