  • LAST TIME OUT
    It went down to the final possession, but the Warriors suffered a 104-103 loss on Saturday night in Memphis. After the Grizzlies went ahead on a putback with 5.6 seconds left, the Warriors were called for an offensive foul on the ensuing possession to seal the defeat. Stephen Curry and Monta Ellis broke out of their slumps in the loss, finishing with a combined 69 points and 12 assists. FULL GAME RECAP


  • WARRIORS VS. CLIPPERS
    Mondays matchup will mark the second of four meetings between the Warriors and Clippers this season. Golden State lost the first contest, 105-86, on Opening Night. Since that game, the teams have taken different paths. The Clippers currently lead the Pacific Division and will have two starters in the upcoming All-Star Game, while the Warriors sit in fourth place in the Pacific Division with an 11-17 record. Needless to say, the Warriors will need to slow down Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, but the Warriors also have a talented duo that will be cause for concern for the Clippers. Both Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry had big games on Saturday and the Warriors will certainly benefit if that proves to be an indicator of things to come.


  • PRODUCTION FROM THE 'DUB'STITUTES
    Ekpe Udoh leads the Warriors with a plus/minus of +111, meaning the Warriors have out-scored their opponents by 111 points when Udoh is on the floor. That rating is more than 50 points higher than any other Warriors player. In addition, Udoh ranks fifth in the league with 4.16 blocks per 48 minutes and is tied for 11th in the league with 1.68 blocks per game.


  • IMPROVED PLAY FROM KLAY
    Warriors rookie Klay Thompson has bounced back from a slow start to the season and now ranks sixth in the NBA, and first among rookies, in 3-point percentage (.458). Thompson has averaged 10.3 points in the last eight games, going 15-for-28 (.536) on 3-pointers during that stretch. MORE ON KLAY THOMPSON
