Monta Ellis had 30 points and nine assists, Dirk Nowitzki was one of seven Dallas players in double figures with 11points and the Mavericks beat the Los Angeles Lakers 123-104 Tuesday night.

Ellis, Nowitzki's new pick-and-roll partner, put on a show for Steve Nash, the big German's buddy and old running mate. He was 11 of 14 from the field, made all eight of his free throws and had just one turnover.

Nash was scoreless until the second half and finished with five points. Nick Young led the Lakers with 21.
