INDIANAPOLIS -- Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle provided a spark, and his team played just as he hoped. Richard Jefferson Jersey . Monta Ellis had 23 points and nine rebounds, and Dirk Nowitzki added 18 points as the Mavericks handed the Indiana Pacers their third home loss of the season, 81-73 on Wednesday night. "Coach got on us pretty good this morning," Nowitzki said. "I thought we responded. We battled them and tried to make it tough on them." The Mavericks (32-22), who have won six of seven, finished a three-game road trip heading into the NBA All-Star break. Dallas five-game winning streak was snapped at Charlotte on Tuesday. "It wasnt that we didnt respect Charlotte," Carlisle said. "Its that we had such great respect for Indiana. We knew we were going to have to play at a super high level." It wasnt easy for either team. Dallas won despite its second-lowest point total this season. The NBAs highest-scoring team netted only 80 points in a loss to New York on Jan. 5. The Mavericks came out on top by holding the Pacers to a season-worst 32.1 per cent shooting. George Hill had 14 points, and Lance Stephenson and Danny Granger both scored 13 for the Pacers (40-12), who have lost two of three. "They beat us at our game," Hill said. "They played well tonight and we just didnt play good enough. We gave one away. Its unfortunate, but its over now." The Mavericks outscored the Pacers 21-11 in the final quarter and scored the first six points of the fourth. Dallas took a 66-62 lead when Ellis made a free throw with 6:55 remaining. Brandan Wright scored, Ellis made two more free throws, and Wright made a layup to give the Mavericks a 72-66 edge. Ellis made a 3-pointer early in the second half to give the Mavericks a 46-42 lead. West hit a jumper, Samuel Dalembert also scored, and Hill sank a 3-pointer to make it 48-47. Paul George scored to give the Pacers their first lead of the second half, 53-52, with 6:12 left in the quarter. Indiana built its edge to 60-55, but Dallas scored five straight to tie it with 2:20 remaining in the third. Pacers coach Frank Vogel reminded his team leading up to Wednesdays game that the All-Star break didnt begin until after Indianas meeting with Dallas. "I wanted to make that clear to all of our guys," Vogel said. "Weve got work to do. We want to go into the break ahead 3 1/2 games." The Mavericks spoiled that for the Pacers. Indiana outshot the Mavericks in the fourth quarter, but Dallas pulled away by making 13 of 16 from the free throw line. Hill scored late to make it 74-68, but Ellis made a pair of free throws. Stephenson scored on a lay-up, and George grabbed a steal and later hit a 3-pointer to make it 76-73 with 37 seconds remaining. Ellis scored four straight points from the line to give the Mavericks an 80-73 advantage. "We were able to make just enough plays," Carlisle said. "It was just a very competitive game from start to finish. There was a lot of attitude in the game, which is great. We were able to get out of here alive." The Mavericks are already looking past the break, and things wont be any easier then. Dallas will hosts the Miami Heat in the first game after All-Star weekend.

Both when the CFL’s Redblacks host the Montreal Alouettes on Friday night - just a few short minutes from where an armed gunman rained chaos on the city Wednesday - and then again when the NHL’s Senators host the New Jersey Devils in suburban Kanata. It’s not the games themselves that are going to feel different. It will be the aura around them, the feel in the stands as they begin to fill up, the singing of “O Canada”, which will be sung with a little more belief, conviction and pride. There are of course the first sporting events since the attacks this week, when the National War Memorial became a crime scene and the Parliament Buildings the subject of terrorist-minded attack. As Jeff Hunt the president of the Ottawa Redblacks said earlier this week, hosting a game Friday night gives his organization, the honour, the power and the responsibility to help lead the healing process. An assault on such symbolic places, in a city that often feels more like a large village, cuts deep. Virtually everyone in Ottawa would know somebody who was in the parliament buildings, or nearby when the chaos erupted. Virtually everyone will be in some way affected. There aren’t a lot of ways to find comfort by sharing that pain, or ways to begin the healing process alongside others similarly affected, which is why sports will play an important role in the return to normaalcy for people in Ottawa. Allen Iverson Jersey. Not because it can allow people to take their minds off of what’s occurred, but because it gives them a chance to band together in a unified voice, to express their determination to remain united in the face of threat. It’s also a way to remind ourselves that the world is still mostly a safe place; that it’s okay to be among crowds without feeling threatened by the thought about who might be lurking among us with the worst of intentions. Ask anyone who attending the first week of NFL games after 9/11 about what that felt like. Or anyone who attended a sporting event in Boston after that city was hit by a terrorist threat at the Marathon. Some people wondered if the city would ever feel the same, if going to sporting events would feel like it used to, a place to laugh and cheer and lose yourself in the magnificent distraction of it all. What the Bruins’ run to the Stanley Cup final and the Red Sox road to the World Series title proved was that people were in fact not afraid to gather in public, that standing as one behind your team as a community had a cathartic quality to it. That’s what the people in Ottawa will experience Friday and Saturday night - strengthened by the opportunity to share with each other their determination to remain strong.
