Warriors v. Celtics, NBA Scores: Ellis Drops 41, Celtics Edge Warriors 107-104

The Golden State Warriors made a late push against the Boston Celtics behind 41 points by Monta Ellis, but couldn’t complete the comeback, eventually losing 107-104 at TD Garden in Boston. The Warriors took advantage of the Celtics lack of continuity with their new players and cut the lead down to one with three minutes to play, but couldn’t take over the lead at the end.

Monta went 13-24 from the field as well as holding Boston’s Ray Allen to only 7 second half points (20 in the first), causing Ray to commit two key offensive fouls towards the end of the game. David Lee had himself a game as well, scoring 26 points and 12 boards mainly against Kevin Garnett. Together Monta and David made up 67 of the teams 104 points, while Dorell Wright added 11 and Steph Curry added 9. Both teams shot around 50% for the game, but the Warriors surprisingly out rebounded Boston 39-28, proof of the hard work the Warriors put in tonight.

For the Celtics Paul Pierce matched Ray Allen’s 27 points but added 7 boards while Kevin Garnett only had 8; but it was Jeff Green doing the damage off the bench, scoring 21 on 8-11 shooting in 28 minutes. Nenad Krstic had 11. Rajon Rondo had 16 assists.

With the loss it moves the Warriors to 27-34. Their next game is on Sunday as they head to the city of brotherly love to face the Philadelphia 76ers.
