Warriors top New Jersey Nets 105-89

Warriors top New Jersey Nets 105-89 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Leave it to Warriors forward Vladimir Radmanovic to state the obvious.

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

But after the Warriors' 105-89 victory, Radmanovic said what everyone already knew: "No disrespect to the Nets, but ... "

Golden State (7-14) did what it had to do beat the worst team in the NBA. The Warriors had multiple contributors in snapping a four-game losing streak, creating some good feelings in the locker room two days after guard Monta Ellis had little help in a loss to Oklahoma City.

Ellis had a relatively off night. He had scored at least 30 points in six of his previous 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 a season-high 16 points to go with seven rebounds, and guard C.J. Watson scored a season-high 18 points off the bench. Rookie guard Stephen Curry 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 halftime lead after outscoring the Nets by 17 in the second quarter, despite getting only two points from Ellis. Watson had 15 in the quarter, making 7 of 8 shots.

The Warriors led 43-40 with 4:08 left in the second quarter after a dunk by Nets center Brook Lopez, a Stanford product 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 layup 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 particular, 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 chiseled away at their deficit. Over the next 13 minutes or so, the Warriors turned over the ball 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' advantage 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 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."
