Warriors rally from 21 down, knock off Hornets

OAKLAND (NBA.com exclusive) -- Monta Ellis hit a 3-pointer early in the fourth quarter to help Golden State complete its biggest comeback of the season Wednesday night.

Ellis scored 28 points and matched his career high with 13 assists as the Warriors rallied from a 21-point deficit late in the third quarter to beat the road weary New Orleans Hornets 131-121. Ellis recorded back-to-back double-doubles for the first time in his career in playing all 48 minutes.

Anthony Tolliver scored a career high 30 points for the Warriors, who won their second in nine games.

"I'm just glad I could help the team the way I did," Tolliver said. "It was my night to get some shots and help the team on the offensive end. You don't ever want to be down 18 or 20 and have to come back but sometimes that's what it takes to wake us up."

Reggie Williams, who signed a second 10-day contract Friday, added 22 points. Chris Hunter had 17 and Corey Maggette scored 14.

"Everybody was just going. A lot of energy got created and we fed off that," said Williams, who was in the developmental league just over two weeks ago. "Coach (Don) Nelson wants us to push it and if it's an open shot just to take it. Everybody has a green light and everybody has the same opportunity. The ball movement was great. Monta was able to get into the defense and found us. And if we didn't have the shot, swing it to the next guy. Monta initiated it and we just fed off that."

The Warriors made a franchise record 11 3-pointers in the second half, including a franchise-matching nine in the final quarter. Golden State outscored the Hornets, 65-34 over the final 17:36 of the contest.

"The fourth quarter was difficult to handle," Hornets' coach Jeff Bowers said. "They got on the moves and we couldn't keep the pace under control. It was like a perfect storm. A team with nothing to lose suddenly got hot. We've seen that before. It's who they are and when they get on a roll they are effective."

Darren Collison didn't need a full 48 minutes to join an exclusive club after scoring 20 points and recording 14 assists for the Hornets.

Collison scored at least 18 points and had nine assists for the eighth consecutive contest, becoming just the second NBA rookie to accomplish the feat, joining Hall of Famer Oscar Robertson. He could set a new standard for rookies against the Jazz in Utah this weekend.

"I have to keep working if I want to be a great player in this league," Collison said. "It's up to me to help lead this team and I can't do that if I continue to turn the ball over."

David West added 36 points and a season-high 15 rebounds as the Hornets were dealt a severe blow to their waning playoff hopes. West has scored at least 20 points in each of his last seven games and scored 30 or more in three of his last five.

Morris Peterson added 17 points for New Orleans, while Marcus Thornton had 14 and Darius Songaila had 13.

"They were unreal," Peterson said. "They made great shots and great plays. Every time we looked up it seemed like they were taking the ball to the basket. If I could explain it, I would. We're up by 21 and they just got hot as a team."

Warriors' rookie point guard Stephen Curry (his father, Dell Curry, owns several Hornets' career records) missed his first game of the season with a sprained left ankle. He participated in the shootaround but came up sore just before game time. C.J. Watson started in his place.

Hornets' point guard Chris Paul, out since left knee surgery on Feb. 4, was cleared for practice and could return to game action as soon as Saturday in Utah, though it's more likely he'll wait until the team returns home to face the Dallas Mavericks on Monday night.

New Orleans had its three-game win streak over the Warriors snapped and fell to 12-19 without Paul in the lineup. The Hornets are 21-17 with their all-star point guard.

Theoretically, Paul would have given the Hornets a better chance of making the playoffs. Had New Orleans maintained its winning percentage (.552) with Paul, it would be in ninth place, three games out of the playoff picture as of the end of play Wednesday.

That barely reflects Paul's value, though, as the Hornets were a playoff team when he went down.

On the other hand, Collison's development as a point guard would have been impeded. As it stands, the rookie has shown he can be a significant contributor to future Hornets' playoff runs.

"We welcome the opportunity to get a player of that caliber back on the floor," Bowers said of Paul. "There is a place for both of them. We're very pleased with his (Collison's) development. It's important for him to improve and continue to learn as he moves forward."

Hornets forward James Posey returned to action after missing the last three games with flu-like symptoms. He provided much needed relief for New Orleans' overworked starters.

"I'm happy to be back in that regard," Posey said. "I felt good out there. But losing is always a low point."
