Warriors blow out lowly Nets on road


Warriors blow out lowly Nets on road EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Leave it to Warriors forward Vladimir Radmanovic to state the obvious.

Before the game, the Warriors executed their game-plan of hyping the New Jersey Nets. Nevermind they set a record with 18 losses to start the season, Golden State was focused on the fact the Nets had won two of their last three games.

But after the Warriors' 105-89 win over New Jersey, Radmanovic said what everyone else knew.

"No disrespect to the Nets, but..."

Golden State (7-14) did what it had to do, not lose to the worst team in Basketball. In the process, the Warriors snapped a four-game losing streak. And they had multiple contributors to the victory, creating some much-needed feel good in the locker room after guard Monta Ellis had little help in Monday's loss to Oklahoma City.

Ellis had a relatively off night. He had scored at least 30 points in six of his last nine games. Wednesday, he missed his first nine shots and finished with 18 points on 7-for-20 shooting with five turnovers.

But center Mikki Moore had his back, setting a season-high with 16 points to go with seven rebounds. So did guard C.J. Watson, who scored 18 off the bench. So did rookie guard Stephen Curry, who scored 11 of his 14 in the first half, while Ellis was struggling.

"We had a lot of guys step up," said Ellis, who also had eight assists and four steals in 43 minutes. "We had a lot of guys who made a lot of great plays. ... Some nights, we're going to have a guy who's not playing well and somebody else has to step up and do a little more. Tonight was a great show of that, of the talent we really have. Together if we keep grinding we can turn this thing around."

The Warriors took a 58-48 lead into the locker room after outscoring the Nets by 17 in the second quarter, despite getting two points from Ellis. Watson had 15 in the quarter, knocking down 7 of 8 shots.

The Warriors' lead was 43-40 at the 4:08 mark of the second quarter after a dunk by Nets center Brook Lopez, who finished with 21 points, 10 rebounds and six turnovers. But the Warriors' lead eventually got as big as 20.

They opened the third quarter with a 16-6 run. Moore had six points and an assist during the spurt, which Ellis capped with a steal and a lay-up to give Golden State a 74-54 lead.

"You can always go to the well," assistant coach Keith Smart said of Moore. "I've known him for a long time. He played for me (in the CBA). I kind of trust what he does. I know who he is. ... One thing I have always liked about him, and on our team in particularly: he's vocal. He's loud early and he's loud often. And that helps the team because we've got a lot of quiet guys."

The Nets would chiseled away the lead. Over the next 13 minutes or so, the Warriors turned the ball over seven times and shot 4-for-15 from the field. So after a fast-break alley-oop from guard Devin Harris to Lopez, the Warriors' once-20-point lead was down to 90-85.

That's when Ellis took over.

He made three baskets during a 10-2 Warriors run, which he capped by slipping a pass to Moore in the paint for a dunk, putting Golden State ahead 100-87.

That all but ended the Nets chances at a comeback and saved the Warriors from an embarrassing defeat. Radmanovic said it best.

". ...We as a team felt like we had to win."
