Warriors Go Cold In Dallas
Playing the second contest of a four-game road trip, the Warriors suffered a 101-73 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday. The seventh-leading scoring team in the NBA, the Warriors shot just 35.1 percent from the field and failed to score more than 23 points in any of the four quarters. After trailing by as many as 17 points in the third quarter, Golden State cut the deficit down to four before Dallas closed the period on a 16-7 run. Monta Ellis had 18 points to lead the Warriors and David Lee had 10 points and 12 rebounds for his ninth double-double in the last 14 games. Stephen Curry added 11 points, six rebounds and six assists for the Warriors, who will continue their road trip in San Antonio on Monday in the back end of a back-to-back.

Dorell Wright On Dallas blowing the game open after the Warriors cut the deficit to four:
“Yeah, they were getting key stops. We got the game all the way to 4 [points] like you said, but at the end we just couldn’t get stops and they were hitting big threes with Peja out there. They were just getting easy baskets – that was our main downfall. But we got it close, but as a good team they did what they were supposed to do.”
On the team's off-shooting night:
“It was just an off night for guys. Guys couldn’t find their shot. I feel like shots that we usually make were going in and out, and we were just missing it. It’s like that at some times. So, we’ve just got to let this one go and get ready for tomorrow.”
On Stojakovic's five 3-pointers off the bench:
“He’s a shooter. That’s what he does. He’s spotting up out there. He’s a shooter, that’s what he does, so we just have to do a better job of closing out to them and contesting [their shots].”
