warriors update Golden State gets more from center Moore

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. Warriors guard Monta Ellis drove the lane, drew New Jersey center Brook Lopez to him and dumped a pass to Mikki Moore. Moore finished the play with a two-hand dunk.

It was his eighth field goal of the night, all coming in the paint. Moore helped the Warriors score 60 points in the key and post a 105-89 victory Wednesday over the New Jersey Nets.

"The difference is I didn't drop any of (Ellis') passes tonight," Moore said after scoring a season-high 16 points against one of his former teams. "We learned that if we swing the ball to the weak side, and then attack the (opponent's big men), there's no help for the drop-off pass."

It was perhaps Moore's best game as a Warrior, and it came when they needed it most. Coming off their worst offensive output of the season, and riding a four-game losing streak, the Warriors badly needed some high-percentage baskets.

After getting abused on the glass in Monday's loss to Oklahoma City, Moore helped the Warriors win the battle of the boards (46-44) by grabbing seven rebounds, his second-highest total of the season.

Lopez, a former Stanford center in his second season, already is paying big dividends for the Nets. Lopez is one of the bright spots on a franchise in disarray.

Lopez is averaging 19.3 points, 9.1 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in 36.3 minutes per game. All of those numbers are significantly higher than last season. He leads all NBA centers in scoring and trails only Portland center Greg Oden in blocks.

Lopez leads all second-year players with 11 double-doubles. He had 19 all of last season.

Warriors guard C.J. Watson promised he would get three dunks this season or he would cancel the Twitter account he so loves. He got two Wednesday.

"Just one more," Watson said with a smile. "All I need is one more."

Watson converted two breakaway dunks off steals Wednesday, ending what had been a bad string of attempts.

He missed a dunk against the Los Angeles Lakers on Nov. 28. On Dec. 3 against Houston, his attempt was blocked from behind by Kyle Lowry.

In the final minute of the first quarter Wednesday, Watson picked off a pass and headed for what looked to be a dunk, but Nets guard Devin Harris blocked it from behind.

But midway through the second quarter, Watson picked off a Rafer Alston pass and, this time, dunked it with two hands. Moments later, he picked off a Chris Douglas-Roberts pass and got a one-handed jam.
