Ellis Spoils Nowitzki's 20-20 game, Bucks Top Mavs

DALLAS (AP) -- Monta Ellis scored 22 points, and the Milwaukee Bucks spoiled Dirk Nowitzki's first game in nearly 10 years with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds with a 95-90 victory against the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night.

Ellis twice put the Bucks ahead in the final 2 minutes, the last time on a jumper for a 92-90 lead with 1:03 remaining.

Nowitzki had 21 points and 20 rebounds for the Mavericks, who had two chances after Ellis' go-ahead basket. Vince Carter missed a 3-pointer and Darren Collison's wild shot on a drive wasn't close.

Nowitzki's last 20-20 game was April 3, 2003, against the Los Angeles Lakers, when he had 25 points and 22 boards.

J.J. Redick, playing his second game in Dallas in six days but in a different uniform after he was traded from Orlando to Milwaukee, had 14 points and Mike Dunleavy added 13.
