Monta Ellis had a cold shooting night against the Spurs but that usually won't stop him from trying to thaw out of an icy shooting stretch. He started off in the first half 2 for 8 with 5 points in the Jordan X "Stealth."

He followed that up by switching to the Jordan XX8 "Bamboo" for the second half of the game. He wasn't much better off. He shot 4 for 12 with 15 points in the second half as Dallas came close to making a comeback in a tight 93-89 loss to San Antonio.
