The Warriors 105-95 road victory over an upstart Cleveland team was a nice continuation of an adjustment that began in the win against Detroit. The Warriors won this game without Monta Ellis making a meaningful offensive contribution — let alone dominating the ball. They didn’t stand around waiting for Ellis to produce and Ellis, to [...]
Golden State Warriors shooting guard Monta Ellis had to leave Tuesday night's win over Cleveland after taking a nasty elbow to his face from Cavaliers forward Anderson Varejao. Ellis’ nose was cut but not broken after taking the blow.That’s good news for the Warriors, who are already missing point guard Stephen Curry. He's been out of the lineup with an ankle injury...
As Monta Ellis goes, so go his Golden State Warriors (4-8). He's their best player, maybe the most underrated offensive player in the Association overall, and he will need to be contained by the Cavaliers tonight. He's averaging 24 points and almost 8 assists per game through these first twelve on forty percent shooting from the floor, and staying in front of Ellis to make...

It might be time to try something different. Even the officials are tired of watching Monta Ellis in isolation sets at the end of quarters and games. Video replays clearly showed that George Hill's right foot kicked the...
Just about everything George Hill tried to do to stop Golden State's Monta Ellis failed -- until it counted most for Indiana's backup guard. With Ellis positioning himself for the potential game-winning shot and the clock winding down, Hill literally stepped in the way and saved his team from again getting burned by the Warriors' star guard.
George Hill kicked the ball away from Monta Ellis in the final seconds and recorded a three-point play at the other end, lifting the Indiana Pacers over the Golden State Warriors, 94-91.
OAKLAND, Calif. -- Indiana Pacers forward Danny Granger couldn't help but to have a flashback to a year ago when Golden State Warriors guard Monta Ellis dribbled the ball out front and was isolated one-on-one with George Hill guarding him.
