Monta Ellis with 30 @ the half!
Great up tempo game between OKC and GSW on NBATv...
Monta with 30 at the half and making some unbelievable shots!
I hope he gets the all-star nod this year.
Also, he is 12/17 from the field.
Yeah, I think the Thunder have tried Harden, Reggie Jackson, and Daquen Cook on him and nothing is working. Could we possibly see a 50 point game tonight? I'm hoping so
Yea,last time the Warriors played OKC he had only 13points on 5-17 shooting, I knew when he came across OKC again he was gonna light them up.
Im not a fan of ellis at all. He has great games but he also has games where it takes him 30 shots to get 30 points. His team never wins anything. Those 2 things are two reasons he will not be an allstar. Hes also shooting 42% this season.
I dunno Scott, I mean a lot of players have games like that. For example, Kobe had 28 on 26 shots last night and lost. I'm not saying Monta is better than Kobe but every player has tough shooting nights.
Just from a fans point of view, Monta is such a dynamic scoring guard. He's only 6'2" and lightening quick but still has crafty moves to get buckets. The Warriors are in a rebuilding phase and don't have a system etched in stone yet, but for the most part, Monta handles his business night in and night out. He's at about 23 and 6 per game and I think from the West guards (CP3, Kobe, Russell Westbrook, and maybe Steve Nash) he's in that conversation to make it.
Plus, do you remember how immature Monta used to be when he came into the league? He's really grown up and become very professional these past few years. I say give the man to be recognized as an all-star! lol
As a Warrior fan, I love this, too bad this is all I'll hear about tomorrow, cause some of my friends had a group package and are at the game. (I refused to join their group, they were overpaying by 45%, but they didn't want to get tickets my way, they were afraid we'd get caught)
Imaybewrong to me ellis has matured and he is a good score but not effecient. He has come a long way, to hes like jamal crawford scores any team would like to have his scoring ability but no one would want him as 1st option or consider him an allstar
Can the Warriors not take the hottest guy on the court out of the game, Monta is not only zoned in offensively but defensively he's got steals and made some good plays on the ball. The past 5 minutes I don't think he has touched it, why?!!?
is david lee the best passing big man or what?
Ellis now has 40 with 30 seconds left in the 3rd.
David Lee yeah he's up there with the best passing big men.
Westbrook at his finest: 6 assists, 8 turnovers.
David Lee has a triple double and this game is so entertaining
I want overtime.
This is a great game! Every star is showing up! Ellis, Durant, Westbrook, Curry, Lee, Harden!
Rush and Cook are draining three's on the side!
Thunder get the win 119-116
Was severely disappointed by the fact Ellis had 40 with 7 mins left in the third, and the Warriors basically stopped passing him the ball. Having him throw the INBOUNDS PASS WITH 1.1 LEFT? WTFFF. Other than that, amazing game.
Monta should've kept shooting. I mean when your shooting at that high of percentage he was certainly capable of 60. and then not giving him the last shot, was absurd.
He looked damn good last night. Poor coaching by GS to take the ball out of the hot mans hand..
IF Mark Jackson keeps blaming the refs, GS will never be good.
Fact is, OKC outplayed them down the stretch of that game, which is what great teams do. That's why OKC is one of the best in the league and GS is not.
KD becoming more and more clutch.
