DALLAS -- Monta Ellis is headed to his first Game 7, and DeJuan Blair gets a chance to play his old team in San Antonio one more time after all. Trey Lyles Jersey . Dallas star Dirk Nowitzki will return to the site of one of the best moments of his stellar career. Ellis scored 12 of his 29 points to lead a fourth-quarter comeback that also got an energetic boost from Blair in his return after getting suspended, and the Mavericks forced a deciding game in their first-round series with top-seeded San Antonio, beating the Spurs 113-111 on Friday night. "Put all of our chips on the table and see what happens," said Ellis, whose 3-pointer put eighth-seeded Dallas ahead for a good at 94-92 with 5 minutes to go. Tony Parker matched Nowitzki with 22 points to lead the heavily favoured Spurs, who are stuck in a tossup series after they won all four games against the Mavericks during the regular season and had a 10-game winning streak against them after taking the opener. The only other time these teams played a Game 7, Nowitzki had an improbable three-point play to force overtime in San Antonio in 2006. The Mavericks went on to win the second-round series and reached the NBA Finals for the first time in franchise history. "Well, its the ultimate thrill," said Nowitzki, who is 4-0 in Game 7s in his career. "Nothing matters anymore. Just this one game." And Blair will be there. He missed Game 5 in South Texas after the league suspended him for kicking Tiago Splitter in the head when he was called for a foul when the pair got tangled up and fell to the court in Game 4. He never said he was mad that the league suspended him, but he showed it, knocking Parker the court with a hard screen that led to a three-point play at the end of the first half for Devin Harris. Then, he had four rebounds and two steals in the fourth quarter -- and finished with 10 points and 14 boards for his second double-double of the series. "His energy was great," said his old coach, San Antonios Gregg Popovich. "He was a man possessed on both ends of the floor. Thought he was really super." Blair had plenty of time to think about Game 6 after watching the previous game alone in his hotel room in San Antonio. "Winning on their court would be the best revenge," said Blair, who spent his first four seasons with the Spurs and was with them for a heartbreaking loss to Miami in the NBA Finals last year. "We just have to bring it next game." The Mavericks handed the Spurs their first road defeat when leading after three quarters this season on the same floor where Vince Carter had given them a 2-1 series lead and sent the crowd into hysterics with an improbable winning 3-pointer. Fans were standing the entire fourth quarter this time, when the Mavericks trailed by five points to start the final 12 minutes before a 14-2 run for an eight-point lead. Parker got the Spurs close again and had a duel of driving layups with Ellis in the final 2 minutes. Parker, who had 13 of his points in the fourth and added six assists, spun through the lane before shovelling one up over Nowitzki with his left hand to get the Spurs within 106-105. The Mavericks pushed the lead back to six before the Spurs made it interesting again with 3-pointers from Danny Green and Patty Mills. It wasnt over until a shot by Mills on an inbound play with 0.4 seconds left was ruled to have been late. It was short anyway. "I thought we just made too many mistakes tonight," said Tim Duncan, who had 16 points and nine rebounds. "Giving up 37 points in the last quarter is just too much for us. Defensively, weve got to be a little more solid than that." Both teams had six players in double figures, with Splitter making 11 of 12 free throws for a playoff career-high 19 points. Danny Green had 17, matching his total for the first five games of the series combined, and Tim Duncan had 16 points and nine rebounds. Carter finished with 13, and Jose Calderon had 12 points and six assists. NOTES: The Spurs were 25-0 on the road when leading after three quarters before this game. Theyre now 55-2 overall for the season. ... The Mavericks had seven turnovers in the second quarter, and the sloppy stretch helped the Spurs cut an 11-point deficit to two at 41-39. Dallas had seven more turnovers in the third, when a six-point lead turned into a five-point deficit. ... Mavericks C Brandan Wright did not play for the first time in the series after playing a series-high 26 minutes in Game 5 when Dallas pick-and-roll defence was shredded. Nikola Jokic Jersey . Certainly not Monday night. George Hill took care of the early work, scoring a season-high 26 points, and Paul George closed it out by scoring 11 of his 26 points during a decisive second-half stretch that finally allowed Indiana to pull away from Minnesota 98-84 for yet another win. Gary Harris Jersey . After just two league games in June, Toronto (6-4-1) will go on to play seven in July plus a friendly against Tottenham. Five of those contests are against Eastern Conference opposition, meaning valuable points in the playoff race are on the line. http://www.authenticnuggetsproshop.com/Customized/ . Malone will become an unrestricted free-agent and as per the collective bargaining agreement, the Lightning will be responsible for two-thirds of the remainder of his contract over twice the length of the rest of the deal. DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers still havent solved their dilemma at shortstop, which came about because of an injury to Jose Iglesias. On Wednesday, general manager Dave Dombrowski ruled out Iglesias for the season -- and the Tigers called up one of their better prospects, hoping he can provide some immediate help. Detroit recalled Eugenio Suarez from Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday and designated infielder Danny Worth for assignment. The 22-year-old Suarez has hit .302 since being promoted to Toledo. Dombrowski announced the move before Wednesday nights game against Toronto, at the same time he confirmed the Tigers dont expect Iglesias back. Iglesias has not played in 2014. He was initially expected to miss several months when the severity of his injuries became clear during spring training. "He continues to make progress, the doctors happy with the progress he made, but at this point, he basically has been ruled out for the season," Dombrowski said. "We had always thought that, but we had maintained maybe a little bit of hope there." Detroit acquired Iglesias from Boston in a trade in the middle of last season, and he ended up finishing second in the American League rookie of the year vote. The Tigers lead the AL Central, but they had lost 11 oof 15 entering Wednesdays game, with the bottom of their batting order struggling to produce. Alex English Jersey. . Shortstop Andrew Romine was hitting .200 through 39 games. Romine remained in the starting lineup Wednesday, but the Tigers want to see what they have in Suarez, who was ranked by Baseball America as Detroits eighth-best prospect before the season. "Hes got some good hands, hes swung the bat well in the minors," manager Brad Ausmus said. "But Id be very careful as to heap too much pressure on this young kid." The Tigers acquired Romine and Alex Gonzalez shortly before the start of the season to play shortstop, and Gonzalez did not even last until the end of April. Now that free agent shortstop Stephen Drew has re-signed with Boston, the Tigers may need to try to trade for someone at that position if their internal candidates continue to flounder. Worth hit .167 in 20 games, and his most notable contribution was probably as an emergency relief pitcher. At the end of two blowout losses last month, he took the mound and showed off a startlingly good knuckleball. "Hes done everything we asked, to an extreme, really," Ausmus said. "No one wants to hear bad news. He was very professional about it."
