Mavs’ Carter: Ellis Will Spread the Floor
Playing alongside (Monta) Ellis is something (Vince) Carter is eager to try. Putting good players around other good players usually translates into good things. The proverbial rising tide that lifts all boats.
“He’s going to open up a lot of shots for our team,” (Vince) Carter said of (Monta) Ellis. “His ability to get in the paint — he’s going to get easy shots. And if the defense plays the help game, I’m on the other side of the court sometimes, so of course that means the weakside guy is the helper. I just make sure I’m ready to shoot the ball. That defender has a decision to make. I want to be one of the best 3-point shooters on the team. And we have some good ones.”
