The Golden State Warriors were desperate for a win to salvage some semblance of a successful road trip out east, taking on the Washington Wizards Monday evening at the Verizon Center. And behind a balanced attack on offense the W's came out victorious by the score of 120-100.
In a gamer the W's never trailed, Monta Ellis led the way with 25 points and eight assists, while rookie Klay Thompson added 18 in one of his best outings as a pro. David Lee had 13 points and 10 rebounds, while Ekpe Udoh exploded for 17 points. Six Warriors that finished the game with double-digit point totals. Stephen Curry say some action tonight as well, scoring 12 in only 9 minutes on the floor.
Tonight was also Golden State's highest-scoring output since beating the Raptors 138-100 last march, a far cry from their poor offensive performances of their past few games.
The Warriors ended their six-game road trip with a 3-3 record, and now head back to Oracle to host the Memphis Grizzlies Wednesday night at Oracle Arena.
