Ellis tallies season-high 34 as Warriors snap skid
Monta Ellis doesn't think he gets enough credit for his defense. Portland's Brandon Roy might disagree.
Ellis scored a season-high 34 points, tied his career high with six steals and played stifling defense against Roy to lead Golden State to a 108-94 victory over the Trail Blazers on Friday night, ending the Warriors' three-game losing streak.
"It definitely gets overlooked," Ellis said. "I hear people say Monta can't play defense, but if you go back and look at the tapes, you don't see Monta getting burned. I can do that day-in and day-out."
