Dirk on his 10,000th career board: "That's pretty unbelievable. I came in as probably the worst 7-foot rebounder in the league at the time."
Dirk on the birth of his son, Max: "Healthy kid. Momma is healthy. It's a special time for me and my family."
Dirk Nowitzki says he got a few hours of sleep after the Phoenix game and joined his wife in the hospital for the birth of his son, Max.
Rick Carlisle in the post-game: "Too much Monta, don't you think?"
Mavs win vs Spurs 101-94...Mavs rally from down 14, they outrebound Spurs 49-43. Mavs now 45-27 and play at Spurs on Friday
Jason Terry, starting Rockets point guard.
Dirk now is just the 7th player in NBA history with at least 27,000 points and 10,000 rebounds.
Monta Ellis with 38 points in both home games vs San Antonio this season
Dirk had a season-high 14 boards against Utah on Feb. 11.
This is just the 6th double-digit rebound game for Dirk this season. His season high is 14. He has 13 right now.
50 points in the paint for Dallas, +14 over San Antonio. That's big.
Whatever you're feeling right now, bottle it up and reopen it after the loss in SA on Friday. They won't beat the Spurs twice and that's ok!
Monta scored a combined 23 pts in the past 2 games. He has 32 tonight.
So that's how you wake Monta Ellis up?
Alongside Dirk, Kareem, K. Malone, Wilt, Shaq, Moses and Elvin Hayes scored at least 27K and grabbed 10K rebs in their careers.
Dirk Daddy has 13 pts and 10 rebounds. It's his 5th double-double of the season.
Defensive rebound with just over 8:30 left in 4th qtr gives Dirk 10,000 career rebounds. 37th player in NBA history to reach that
Monta is 12 of 21 for 28 pts. Dirk and Parsons are 10 of 21 for 21 pts.
Ellis plays hero ball to end quarter. Would've been more beneficial to initiate p&r w Amare. Assuming Rondo reiterated that on bench.
It's weird watching a Spur fling a crosscourt baseline bounce pass and it isn't off a hammer play.
Tech on Devin.
Monta is officially out of his slump. He is 11 of 18 from the field with 26 points.
On a positive note, Devin Harris is playing his ass off. Clearly has heart. All over the floor on both ends.
These drives are moves I haven't seen Monta Ellis make in weeks.
Tech on Monta. He was mad. He thought he was fouled on the previous drive. But you can't be giving away points.
Richard Jefferson is out with lower back stiffness.
Did the world really need another Paul Blart movie? We're an embarrassing bunch.
Stop the presses!! Monta got a call on a drive.
Pop somewhat verbose (comparatively speaking) in the between quarters interview
