Monta Ellis' Over-The-Backboard Shot (VIDEO)

Monta Ellis has been seen nailing an absolutely ridiculous shot before, but here is one that actually occurred during a game.

Midway through the second quarter in Dallas last night, the Warriors guard looped a shot well over the backboard for two quick points. Golden State trailed by 16 points at the time, so it was just about the only thing for Warriors fans to be excited about.

The Warriors edged closer later in the game, but still fell short to the Mavericks. Ellis scored a career-high 46 points in the loss. Scroll down for video.
