  • LAST TIME OUT
    Monta Ellis had 33 points and seven assists as the Warriors notched a 106-97 victory over the Houston Rockets on Sunday night at Oracle Arena. Golden State took a lead it wouldn't relinquish during a 13-0 second-quarter run that spanned more than four and a half minutes. David Lee had 15 points and 13 rebounds for his third-straight home double-double and Klay Thompson continued his strong play with 14 points off the bench. FULL GAME RECAP


  • WARRIORS VS. SUNS
    A Warriors-Suns matchup in recent years would almost guarantee a barnburner, but on paper thats no longer the case. The Warriors have picked up the pace in recent weeks but Phoenix ranks 19th in the league in scoring (93.4 points per game) the Warriors are fourth at 99.3 ppg. The Warriors head into Mondays matchup seeking their third-straight win against a Phoenix squad that won the first matchup, 102-91, on January 2 in the desert. The Suns have won the last seven games in this division rivalry, and the Warriors will need to slow down Steve Nash (14.6 ppg, 10.3 apg) in order to stop that skid.


  • GETTING IT DONE ON DEFENSE
    Warriors Head Coach Mark Jackson promised an improved Warriors defense and that has certainly held true in recent contests. Over the past two games, Golden State opponents have shot just 72-of-154 (.425) from the field. Furthermore, the Rockets had 15 points in the second quarter matching a Warriors opponent's season-low for points in a second quarter on Sunday and 19 turnovers for the game.


  • SUCCESS FROM DOWNTOWN
    The Warriors are shooting 45.3 percent (126-for-278) on 3-pointers over the last 12 games and now rank first in the NBA in 3-point shooting (.396) and third in made 3-pointers per game (8.7). Over the last four games, the Warriors are averaging 12.8 made 3-pointers per game.
