Jazz lose again, fall to Warriors (no D-Will)
Warriors snap four-game skid, beat Jazz 96-81 -- The AP reports: Monta Ellis sat stoically on the Golden State bench in the fourth quarter, a towel draped over his head and an emotionless expression. Even he looked stunned. The only thing perhaps more surprising than his performance was the outcome. Stephen Curry had 27 points, seven assists and six rebounds and the Warriors overcame Ellis’ horrendous shooting performance to beat the undermanned Utah... Dorell Wright scored 16 points, and Reggie Williams added 15 to help the Warriors build a 19-point lead in the fourth quarter while Ellis was on the bench. Ellis, averaging a team-high 25 points, was held to a season-low two points on 1-for-9 shooting in 31 minutes... Al Jefferson had 16 points and 14 rebounds, and Andre Kirilenko had 14 points and nine rebounds for a Jazz team that has lost six straight road games. Utah never seriously challenged in this one with star point guard Deron Williams out with a hyperextended right wrist and center Mehmet Okur sidelined by a strained back.
