After a grueling road trip and a 6 game losing streak, the Golden State Warriors let out their frustrations on the Toronto Raptors last night with a demoralizing 138-100 victory at Oracle Arena. The Warriors dropped a ridiculous 84 points in the first half alone, and had leads as big as 47 points in the second half.
As a team the W’s shot 61% and saw seven Warriors with double-digit point totals. Lead by Monta Ellis’ 27, Dorell Wright’s 26, and Stephen Curry’s 23, David Lee added 21 and 7 boards, while Al Thornton had 12, Ekpe Udoh and Reggie Williams had 10 apiece. With the win it moves the W’s to 31-42 on the season and hopefully will start a winning streak that ends out the Warriors season. The Warriors have now beat Toronto in their last seven meetings at Oracle, and for the last five meetings overall.
Next up fot Golden State is the Washington Wizards at Oracle Arena on Sunday. Tipoff is set for 6:00 p.m. and can be seen on CSN Bay Area and heard on KNBR 680.
