Default Dirk-Monta duo already dangerous

There usually isnít much thatís pretty about a preseason loss to a team thatís likely destined for another high lottery pick.

However, it isnít hard to find the silver lining from the Dallas Mavericksí 102-94 defeat by the Orlando Magic on Monday night.

We got a glimpse of just how good the two-man game with Dirk Nowitzki and new sidekick Monta Ellis can be during the second quarter. That duo ran the high pick-and-pop over and over during that frame, filling it up for a combined 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting.

ďThatís probably going to be our bread and butter all season long,Ē said Nowitzki, who finished with 24 points on 9-of-14 shooting, although he was more focused on his failure to get a single rebound in 25 minutes.
