VIDEO: Monta Ellis explodes for 25 fourth quarter points

In danger of losing a fourth straight game, the Bucks needed a St. Patrick's Day miracle from Monta Ellis to overcome the not-so-mighty Orlando Magic. And what a miracle it was, as Ellis poured in an NBA season-high 25 fourth quarter points and 39 for the game to carry the Bucks to a 115-109 win.

Five threes, 8/10 from the field, and 25 points.

Not bad for a fourth quarter--the best we've seen this season in the NBA, actually---and the best example yet of Monta Ellis' newfound brilliance as a Milwaukee Buck. Ellis piled up a season-best 39 points to help Milwaukee fend off a plucky Magic team that led by 12 with just over six minutes remaining, helping the Bucks snap a three game skid and pull to within three games of the Hawks, Celtics and Bulls for the fifth through sevent spots in the Eastern playoff race.

Big hat tip to the awesome DowntoBuck youtube channel for the video.
