LAST TIME OUT
David Lee had 28 points and 12 rebounds as the Warriors powered through a 102-96 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Monday at home. Playing on the back-end of a back-to-back, Lee notched his fourteenth double-double of the season to give Golden State its first three-game winning streak of the season. Monta Ellis overcame a slow start and finished with 18 points and seven boards while Nate Robinson chipped in 11 to lead the Warriors’ bench over the Suns’ 39-25. FULL GAME RECAP
WARRIORS VS. TRAIL BLAZERS
The Warriors have sported a little bit of ownage of the Trail Blazers in recent seasons, having won four-straight games against their Oregon neighbors and 11 of the last 12 at Oracle Arena. Included in that stretch was last month’s 101-93 victory in which Stephen Curry and David Lee each had big games. The Warriors will be seeking their first four-game winning streak of the season, and they’ll look to do that against a Trail Blazers team that was dealt a major blow on Tuesday night. During their loss to the Wizards, All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge (23.3 ppg, 8.6 rpg) suffered a sprained left ankle and did not return to the game. The Trail Blazers have now lost four of their last five and will be playing the second contest of a back-to-back-to-back on Wednesday.
DAVID DOUBLING DOWN
David Lee has recorded 10-plus points and 10-plus rebounds in each of the Warriors’ four home games in February. He is tied for ninth in the NBA and fourth among forwards with 14 double-doubles. In addition, he ranks fourth among power forwards in scoring (18.6 ppg) and fifth in rebounding (10.1 rpg).
Ekpe Udoh has blocked at least one shot in six of the last seven games and averages 2.57 blocks per game during that stretch. Overall, Udoh ranks 14th in the NBA - and third among reserves - with 1.6 blocks per game. His 4.01 swats per 48 minutes is sixth in the league.
