The Golden State Warriors are off to a decent start at the Prudential Center as they trail 29-22 to the New Jersey Nets after the first quarter. The Warriors are looking to end the road trip with back-to-back wins, but will need to once again to shoot themselves out of the hole they’re in.
The Warriors were looking to get the Nets running as they are coming off of their long distance trip to London, England last week, and had some success forcing 5 turnovers and getting some easy buckets in transition. The Nets came out of the gate as if they were still trying to shake the cobwebs out from the trip, but were on fire from the floor shooting 50% from the floor while making 5 out of 5 three pointers.
David Lee and Monta Ellis started off with 6 points a piece, Dorell Wright added four while Steph Curry had two. Sasha Vujacic and Anthony Morrow were the top scorers of the first quarter with 10 and 11 respectively, and haven’t missed from downtown.
Andris Biedrins got his first start of the last couple games, taking his starting spot back from rookie Ekpe Udoh. Although Biedrins was about as efficient as Udoh was with two points and two boards.
