PACERS
(6-9)

107

A career-night from Monta Ellis helped lead the Warriors to a 126-107 comeback win over the Pacers on Monday night at Oracle Arena. After trailing by as many as 14 points, the Warriors rallied behind Ellis and completely dominated the second half of play. Ellis finished with a career-high 45 points on 15-of-27 shooting, while also going 14-for-16 from the free-throw line. Ellis wound up fouling out midway through the fourth quarter, but C.J. Watson and Corey Maggette picked up where Ellis left off, combining for 32 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds off the bench. Anthony Morrow added 18 points for the Warriors, who shot 56.3 percent from the field and out-scored Indiana 75-50 in the second half. Golden State wont have much time to think about the win, as the team will complete a back-to-back on Tuesday in Denver.

QUOTES



Keith Smart
On Tonight's Game:
At some point in the game there was going to be an explosion offensively for us. The defense had to travel with you all the way through and we just had to keep playing defense. I think C.J. played a big part in that, coming in and making some plays. He gave another ball handler on the floor and of course Monta has been playing at a level that has been pretty incredible.

I try to preach to these guys that the defense follows you every where you go. They bought into that tonight.

On Chris Hunter:
When you are on a shoe-string budget youre always going to be ready because you have to pay rent. I know that feeling when youre in the minors. He will always be ready.


Monta Ellis
On His Performance:
Actually my wife asked me to get 50 tonight, I was pulling for it. But we all know what happened at the end. I didnt know I had five foulskind of snuck on me a little. When I fouled out, she said 45 and a win is cool with me so Im happy.


Corey Maggette
On Tonight's Game:
(Monta Ellis) had a great game tonight. He kept us in the game the first three quarters and just kind of took over. Then C.J. (Watson) came in and made some great plays, and (Anthony) Morrowjust a great team effort tonight.


Anthony Randolph
On Monta Ellis:
Its unbelievable. Hes been carrying us these last five games. And just being able to sit over there and watch what he does is kind of unbelievablefor a guy his size too.
