Warriors Stave Off Pistons Rally, Stay Unbeaten At Home
With the new owners in attendance, Warriors coach Keith Smart knew his team had to figure out a way to hang on for a much-needed victory on an important day in Golden State Warriors history.
Monta Ellis scored 24 of his 27 points in the first half and the Warriors remained unbeaten at home despite losing nearly all of a 32-point, first-half lead, beating the Detroit Pistons 101-97 on Monday night.
“Maybe we’ll all get raises now,” Smart said. “It just tops off everything with the new change today and then players trying to get a win.”
