NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Dirk Nowitzki scored 24 points, Monta Ellis added 23 and the Dallas Mavericks sent the short-handed New Orleans Pelicans to their fourth straight loss, 107-90 on Friday night.
    
Vince Carter added 14 points and Jae Crowder 12  for Dallas, which never trailed. The Mavericks led by as many as 23 points in the third quarter before cruising against a Pelicans squad minus starting point guard Jrue Holiday and leading scorer Ryan Anderson.
    
Holiday missed his first game with a stress fracture in his right shin. Anderson went down last week with a herniated desk.
    
Eric Gordon scored 27 points for New Orleans, while Anthony Davis added 21 points and 13 rebounds.
    
That wasn't nearly enough to keep pace with the Mavs, who hit 14 of 28 3-point shots.
