Default Monta Ellis helps Bucks beat Warriors

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

Golden State owner Joe Lacob set the tone for a night that was as much about a heartfelt tribute to Monta Ellis as it was about the Warriors' 120-98 loss to Milwaukee.

"I'm getting chills talking about (Ellis) right now," Lacob said two hours before the game. "He's one of my favorite players in the NBA. Anyone who thinks otherwise is crazy."

An hour later, Ellis got a standing ovation from one side of Oracle Arena when he entered through the visitors' tunnel for the first time since being traded to the Bucks on Tuesday. After stopping to hug assistant coach Pete Myers and swingman Dorell Wright and discuss his new red shoes with guard Nate Robinson, Ellis got the same admiration when he strutted to the far end of the court to start his preparations.

Ellis got cheered again when he jogged out with his new teammates for pregame layup lines. Out of a sign of respect, the Warriors announced him last of the five Milwaukee starters, which set off a 22-second standing ovation that extended five more seconds after he gave a two-handed waving salute.
