Mavs hand Grizzlies fifth straight loss

Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Dirk Nowitzki scored 20 points and the Dallas Mavericks extended the Memphis Grizzlies' recent struggles by cruising to a 105-91 win at American Airlines Center.

Monta Ellis added 18 points and Vince Carter chipped in 14 along with six assists in a game Dallas led virtually wire-to-wire en route to a second consecutive victory.

The Mavericks shot nearly 55 percent from the floor while holding the Grizzlies to a 40 percent field goal percentage to improve to 5-2 in December and deal Memphis a season-high fifth straight loss.

Tony Allen paced the Grizzlies, who played without a pair of starters in point guard Mike Conley and Tayshaun Prince, with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Zach Randolph and Jon Leuer finished with 14 points each in defeat.
