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.
Nick Young led the Wiz with 25 points tonight, scoring 15 in the fourth quarter, while John Wall dropped 20 points and 14 assists for Washington, who have now lost seven of their last eight 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.
