Ellis, Barea keep Mavs alive with 121-109 win over Rockets

DALLAS (AP) Monta Ellis scored 31 points, J.J. Barea had 17 points and 13 assists in his first playoff start since boosting Dallas' run to the 2011 championship and the Mavericks avoided elimination with a 121-109 victory over the Houston Rockets on Sunday night.

Dallas cut Houston's lead to 3-1 in the first-round series. Game 5 is Tuesday night in Houston.
