Comeback Falls Short For Warriors
The Warriors came back from a 15-point deficit in the fourth quarter, but a last-second jumper from Monta Ellis was off target in a 96-95 loss in Portland on Saturday night. Golden State struggled offensively for the first three quarters but took charge in the fourth period. Ellis scored 21 of his 26 points in the second half and Reggie Williams had 16 points in the defeat. David Lee logged his third-straight double-double and both Rodney Carney and Vladimir Radmanovic helped get the Warriors back in the game with strong performances off the bench. The Warriors will now return home to host the Rockets on Monday, and fans taking advantage of Jackís Box Office Specials can get tickets for as little as $15, plus a voucher good for any Jack in the Box menu item.

Reggie Williams On the game's last possession:
ďThatís the guy we want to take the shot, thatís who we called the play for and thatís who had the ball in his hands. I felt good about him having the ball, thinking he was going to make it. Monta had the most points tonight. He was on fire, and went on a scoring spurt by himself at one point. He was the hot man. It was just unfortunate that it didnít fall.Ē
On the close finish:
ďWe gave ourselves a chance to win it at the end, and you canít ask for more on the road. We just couldnít pull it out.Ē
