Monta Ellis has all the buzzer-beaters

You may recall Ellis knocking down an improbable triple just before the horn in Game 1. At the end of the third quarter of Game 2, he hit an even more ridiculous 3-pointer, and now the Mavericks trail the Rockets by just one with 12 minutes remaining. Follow live

Love in reverse is something to love
NBA

NBA 

If it's quite all right with the Wizards, Pierce would prefer a sweep as the series shifts to Washington. "I don't want to go through customs no more!" Pierce shouted on his way off the court following the Wizards' Game 2 win.

Half: Rockets 53, Mavs 51. Big question for Rick Carlisle: How much will he roll with Rajon Rondo in the second half?
