LAST TIME OUT
Playing the final game of a four-game road trip, the Warriors wound up on the losing end of a 107-100 contest in New Jersey on Wednesday. Monta Ellis kept the game close for Golden State, scoring 30 points while tallying five assists and six steals. David Lee notched another double-double, finishing with 12 points and 10 rebounds, while Dorell Wright scored 17 points on the night. FULL GAME RECAP
WARRIORS VS. PACERS
Friday’s inter-conference showdown comes nearly a year to the day after Ellis beat the Pacers with a last-second jumper from the top of the key (January 19, 2011). Brandon Rush was defending Ellis on that play, but he’ll now be on the other side as the Warriors look to extend their home winning streak over the Pacers to five games. Indiana, however, has a bit of a new look this season. The addition of two-time NBA All-Star David West has solidified a starting five that already included Danny Granger and the ever-improving Roy Hibbert. With seven players averaging double figures in scoring, the Pacers have proved to be a formidable opponent in the first month of the season.
Keep an eye on Ellis. The seventh-year guard bounced back from a tough game in Cleveland and tallied 30 points, five assists and six steals on Wednesday in New Jersey. He joins LeBron James and Derrick Rose as the only players in the NBA averaging more than 20 points and seven assists. Ellis is sixth in the league in scoring (23.2 ppg), 16th in assists (7.1 apg) and ninth in steals (1.85 spg). DUB THE VOTE
