NBA Preview from The Sports Network



Monday, December 9th (All times Eastern)

Golden State Warriors (12-9) at Charlotte Bobcats (9-11), 7 p.m.

(SportsNetwork.com) - The Golden State Warriors will polish off a three-game road trip Monday night when they visit the Charlotte Bobcats at The Time Warner Cable Arena.

The Warriors started the sojourn east with an embarrassing 105-83 loss in Houston Friday, but evened their mark on the trek with a 108-82 drubbing of the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday.

The victory on Saturday was Golden State's third in four games, but the Warriors have struggled a bit over the last few weeks. They are just 4-6 in their last 10, but Saturday's win was more like what the Warriors expected this season.

"I think we showed who we truly are," said Warriors coach Mark Jackson. "We've been upset with the way we've played. We came in here against a team that we had not had much success, or any success, at all against and we got a quality win. I'm really proud of my guys."

The Warriors snapped an 11-game losing streak to the Grizzlies.

"They've had their way with us. It's been a long time coming," Jackson said.

Klay Thompson rebounded from a horrendous performance in Houston that saw him score five points with 30 against the Grizz. Steph Curry scored 22 points and handed out 15 assists in 45:21 of action.

David Lee notched a double-double with 23 points and 11 rebounds and Andrew Bogut pulled down 12 boards.

The Warriors play five of their next six at Oracle Arena.

The Bobcats ended a two-game slide Friday night with a 105-88 laugher over the Philadelphia 76ers at home.

Charlotte, which is last in the NBA in scoring, had its way with the Sixers, who are last in the league in opponents' scoring. The Bobcats went over the 100-point mark for only the second time this season and the first came way back on Nov. 5 in New York.

"We were playing really well on offense," said Jeff Taylor. "We were getting easy buckets, dunks, open shots. We definitely felt good on offense all night."

Charlotte put up 62 points in the first half and was led in scoring by Taylor's 20. Gerald Henderson and Kemba Walker both scored 18 points and Walker handed out 10 assists.

Al Jefferson had a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds and Ramon Sessions and Cody Zeller both scored in double figures off the bench.

The Bobcats host the Orlando Magic on Wednesday to complete this short homestand.

The Warriors won both of last season's meetings and have taken three of their last five in Charlotte.
