Vinsanity in Dallas for the win

The Mavericks defeated the Spurs by one point on that Vince Carter fling from the corner for a 109-108 victory. The Mavericks have a 2-1 series lead.

Monta Ellis was the star of the fourth quarter with 29 points, 12 in the final 12 minutes. He was going after the basket and making shots at will. He was in a one-on-one battle with the Spurs and keeping Dallas in it. Manu Ginobili set up the theatrics with a lay in with 1.7 seconds left to give the Spurs a two-point lead. Then Vince did his thing.

San Antonio got 22 points from Tim Duncan and 19 from Tony Parker. The Spurs had the lead for much of the second half and seemed poised to hold off the Mavericks as Ellis went on his scoring burst. Carter changed all that by leaking to the corner.
