    (SportsNetwork. Anibal Sanchez Jersey .com) - The Dallas Mavericks are sputtering a bit, but theyll try to get back on track Wednesday night when the New Orleans Pelicans visit American Airlines Center. The Mavs have lost two of three since a five-game winning streak. The first loss came at home to the Phoenix Suns, but on Tuesday, Dallas blew a 10-point lead en route to a 114-105 road loss to the Memphis Grizzlies. The Mavericks converted 18 3-pointers in the loss and were down in by a disastrous third quarter. The Grizzlies outscored the Mavs, 36-17, and never looked back. The third quarter was obviously our downfall in the game, head coach Rick Carlisle acknowledged. We did a poor job and it cost us. I like the way we hung in. We kept fighting. We actually had a shot to take the lead in the fourth, but losing the third quarter by 19 points was a killer. Chandler Parsons shot 6-of-10 from behind the arc and matched Memphis Marc Gasol with 30 points. Jameer Nelson finished with 18 points for Dallas, while J.J. Barea netted 17 off the bench. Dallas usually productive duo of Dirk Nowitzki and Monta Ellis combined to shoot 5-of-28 from the field (17.9 percent) for 13 points. Ellis played through an elbow injury and made only one of his 11 attempts in a two-point effort. Weve got to see how hes doing tomorrow, Carlisle said of Ellis Tuesday night. Its just a very tough situation for him, so hopefully its more of a day-to-day thing and hopefully hes feeling a lot better tomorrow. But well have to wait and see. The Pelicans have taken two straight to get back to .500. On Sunday, New Orleans toppled the Los Angeles Lakers by 17 at the Staples Center, then came back home and secured a 104-93 victory over the New York Knicks at the Smoothie King Center on Tuesday. Tyreke Evans poured in 27 points and the Pelicans put together a strong fourth quarter to come away with the win over the Knicks. Evans netted eight points and Omer Asik had seven during a final period in which the Pelicans outscored New York by a 27-20 count to pull away and sent the Knicks to a ninth consecutive loss and 10th in a row on the road. Evans was really good at attacking the basket, Pelicans head coach Monty Williams said. Asik finished with 16 points and 14 rebounds, while Anthony Davis put up 18 points and eight boards in the win. Jrue Holiday added 13 in the win, which saw the Pelicans shoot 50 percent from the field. The Mavericks have beaten the Pelicans eight straight times, including a five- point win in New Orleans on Nov. 1. Dallas is 9-1 in its last 10 as the host in this series. Denny McLain Jersey . -- Chris Crawford hit a 3-pointer with 1:36 left to put Memphis ahead to stay, and the 21st-ranked Tigers beat seventh-ranked Louisville 72-66 Saturday, sweeping the season series from the Cardinals. Alex Avila Jersey .Mateo Kovacic and Andrea Ranocchia scored for Inter, which had goalkeeper Samir Handanovic to thank for several crucial saves.Its an important victory against a Chievo side which plays well, Mancini said.DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - With an eye on the future, Michael Shank Racing made massive changes to its program that just might pay immediate dividends.Shank changed his chassis, engine and driver lineup during the off-season, moves he believes will help him reach his goal of racing his team at Le Mans in 2016. The shake-up also could help the team owner win his second Rolex 24 at Daytona.Ozz Negri put the No. 60 Ligier JS P2 Honda on the pole for the twice-round-the-clock endurance race that begins Saturday at Daytona International Speedway. Negris fast run continued a streak of domination the Shank team has had all week: In five on-track sessions, the team has led the speed chart.Its given the team a sense of hope that, barring reliability issues, the lineup of Negri, John Pew, AJ Allmendinger and 17-year-old newcomer Matt McMurry could collect brand new Rolex watches Sunday.When you look at opportunity, theres been none better for us, Shank said Friday. Theyve got to understand that opportunities like this dont come along very often. Weve had it twice in 11 years that I felt like we could really, really win.Shank didnt know if hed be in this position when he overhauled the program by leaving Ford and the DP Riley the organization had used since 2008.He did it in anticipation of rule changes IMSA is expected to make for the sports car series in 2017, and because switching into a P2 from a Daytona Prototype put him in a car that meets Le Mans specifications.I needed to make a move for my business, this is all I do for a living, and I needed to try to figure out where we want to place ourselves the next five years, Shank said. And, we needed a change. We were just not consistently competitive enough where we were.But the change was expensive, and Shank had to offset some of those costs by signing McMurry, a high school junior who made his Le Mans debut last year. The move came at the expense of IndyCar driver Justin Wilson, who was part of a lineup that had been unchanged since 2012 when Shank won his first Rolex 24.The team owner said it crushes me to not have Wilson participating. He even considered using Wilson as a fifth driver, but driver size differences and the adjusstment to the Ligier made it too difficult. Justin Upton Jersey. .The flipside is that McMurry made Shank commercially successful, and the car is sold out of sponsorship races for the Rolex and Sebring.Allmendinger recognizes the team will have a speed drop-off from Wilson to McMurry, but the teenager who has to do homework between practice sessions only needs to race smart for the team to be successful.You just need to know your role, go out there and not make mistakes and keep the car on the race track and keep it out of trouble, Allmendinger said.The speed in the Shank entry has gotten the attention of the paddock, which considers the No. 60 one of the cars to beat.Of course, the competition is stiff and Chip Ganassis two entries have been right behind Shank in every session.For now, the No. 02 Ford EcoBoost BP entry commonly known as the star car has been more consistent. Three-time IndyCar champion Scott Dixon will open and close the race for that team, which includes Indianapolis 500 winner Tony Kanaan, Daytona 500 winner Jamie McMurray and Sprint Cup Series rookie of the year Kyle Larson.I was out to lunch last year, said Larson, who was admittedly nervous about making mistakes before his Rolex debut and then made several in his first stint. Im way faster than I was last year, a lot more consistent. Well see how the race goes, but I think I should be more competitive than I was last year.The No. 01 is headed by Scott Pruett, who will be seeking a record sixth win that will move him past Hurley Haywoods record. Hes driving with new full-time teammate Joey Hand, and IndyCar drivers Charlie Kimball and Sage Karam. Pruetts all-American team has won three Rolexs since the Dixon-led No. 02 last won in 2006.Also expected to be in the mix is defending race winner Action Express Racing, which also won in 2010, and returned last years winning lineup of Joao Barbosa, Christian Fittipaldi and IndyCars Sebastien Bourdais.And, Wayne Taylor Racing is hoping to improve on consecutive runner-up finishes and earn its first win since 2005, when team owner Taylor was driving. The team now includes both of his sons, Jordan and Ricky, and longtime Taylor driver Max Angelelli.
