The Lakers’ defense was relatively non-existent throughout their Monday night loss to the Dallas Mavericks
The Warriors and representatives for Monta Ellis are working cooperatively to see if a trade to a contending team can be arranged, a deal that would likely happen around the NBA draft later this month, a person with knowledge of the discussions told CBSSports.com.
Monta Ellis scored 26 points, David Lee had 22 points and 17 rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors held on to beat the suddenly sluggish Los Angeles Lakers 95-87 on Wednesday night.
Even with Monta Ellis in the lineup, Golden State has been unable to beat the Los Angeles Lakers in almost three years. Without its star, pulling off that elusive victory becomes an even bigger challenge against the two-time defending NBA champions.
