  • LAST TIME OUT
    The Warriors snapped out of their offensive funk and closed out their longest road trip of the season with a 120-100 win over the Wizards on Monday. After struggling with their shots in recent games, Golden State shot 15-for-23 on 3-pointers and 54.2 percent overall. Monta Ellis led the way with 25 points and eight assists and Klay Thompson and Ekpe Udoh combined for 35 points. FULL GAME RECAP


  • WARRIORS VS. GRIZZLIES
    There’s no question that the Warriors have a score to settle with the Grizzlies. The prior two matchups this season have resulted in stomach-punch defeats for the Warriors, who let double-digit leads slip away in each of the games. As if avenging those defeats didn’t serve as enough motivation, the Warriors should be amped to play in front of their home crowd for the first time in more than two weeks. Golden State went 3-3 on its longest road trip of the season and will look to make a push against a well-rested Grizzlies team that has won 10 of its last 12 games.


  • CURRY RETURNS
    It’s been an issue for much of the season, but Stephen Curry’s health appears to be on the rise. After straining a tendon in his right foot in Phoenix on February 22, the third-year guard returned to action during Monday’s win and scored 12 points in nine minutes. Even more encouraging is that Head Coach Mark Jackson said Curry could have played more had it been a closer game. Moving forward, Curry’s presence can only make the Warriors better.


  • SHAKING THINGS UP
    The Warriors have inserted Ekpe Udoh into the starting lineup in each of the last two games and Coach Jackson has every intention on keeping him there for the rest of the season. In three starts this season, Udoh is averaging 14.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 32.3 minutes per game. Furthermore, he has the highest plus/minus rating on the team (+134), meaning the Warriors have out-scored the opposition by 134 points this season when Udoh is in the game, and he ranks sixth in the NBA with 3.76 blocks per 48 minutes. And speaking of front court production, the Warriors have recalled Jeremy Tyler from the Dakota Wizards. The rookie forward/center averaged 15.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.40 blocks in 28.8 minutes over five games in the D-League.
