Yesterday’s 103-99 win over the Boston Celtics marked only the second time this season the Golden State Warriors have won two-games in a row. It also marked the second time this season the Celtics — the East coast power — had two losses in a row.
Monta Ellis (37 points) battled it out with Rajon Rondo (30 points and 15 assists) and actually won. It was interesting to wake up this morning (after falling asleep on it) and seeing the end score.
I wonder if the Warriors have let go of all of its offseason and early season woes and are prepared to take things to another level. This is definitely a step for this team in a positive direction.
As always, I still think they need a dynamic big man before they can turn the corner. But the playoffs are not unreachable now. It’s a matter of putting together games like last night, against strong teams that are absolutely dangerous from three to four spots in the lineup, and making big shots as Ellis did in the waning seconds from the free throw line.
