The Stat Line Of The Night – 12/21/10 – Monta Ellis
The Golden State Warriors have had a difficult time coming across wins this season and being without the services of their young superstar Stephen Curry certainly hasn’t helped. Thankfully they still do have the services of another young superstar by the name of Monta Ellis, who put his skills on display last night during a game against the Sacramento Kings.
One night after scoring 44 points in a losing cause, Ellis put up an impressive 36 points, but most importantly he made sure that his stellar performance wasn’t all for not as his nine points during the overtime period led the Warriors to a 117-109 victory. Ellis also added seven assists, four rebounds and four steals.
The win was only the second for the Warriors in the month of December and while it does not appear as though they will be making any sort of a playoff push this season, their future does look bright with the likes of Ellis and Curry leading their youth movement. But for now Ellis will have to settle with “The Stat Line of the Night” for Tuesday, December 21, 2010.
