Monta Ellis made 18 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter, giving the Warriors the late surge they needed to beat the Kings 105-102. Stephen Jackson added 26 points for Golden State, but stopped the hearts of the home crowd when he went down clutching his ankle in the third quarter, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.
Jackson was able to walk it off, and drained two free throws to score his team's final, deciding points. For Sacramento, Mike Bibby was looking back to near form with 24 points and seven assists, and Ron Artest put up 23 points and 13 boards. Both teams looked dreadful from beyond the arc, with the Kings shooting 19% and the Warriors 24%.
