LAST TIME OUT
In a game that featured an NBA season-high 25 lead changes, the Warriors wound up just short, falling to the visiting Pacers in a 94-91 contest at Oracle Arena on Friday. Monta Ellis led the way for the Warriors, scoring 25 points. Stephen Curry returned to the Warriors lineup for the first time since January 4 and scored seven of his 12 points in the fourth quarter. (The NBA has since announced that a missed kick ball violation took place with 5.4 seconds remaining in the game.) FULL GAME RECAP
WARRIORS VS. GRIZZLIES
The Warriors will be looking to build on their success against the Grizzlies at home. Golden State has won seven of its last nine Oracle Arena meetings against the Grizzlies, including each of the last three. Even without Zach Randolph (torn right MCL), the Grizzlies have rallied off six-straight wins. Anchored by Rudy Gay and a strong supporting cast of Marc Gasol, O.J. Mayo and Mike Conley, the Grizzlies are truly a dangerous team.
Monta Ellis continues to make his case for the 2012 All-Star game, as he tallied 25 points and six assists on Friday. He joins LeBron James and Derrick Rose as the only players in the NBA averaging more than 20 points and seven assists. Ellis is sixth in the league in scoring (23.3 ppg), 16th in assists (7.0 apg) and ninth in steals (1.71 spg). DUB THE VOTE
