GOLDEN STATE 132, HOUSTON 128
Looking good: Monta Ellis announced his candidacy for the scoring title with 46 points on opening night, the most points on Opening Night since Michael Jordan‘s 54 on Nov. 3, 1989, overshadowing a stellar 25-point, 11-assist effort from Steph Curry. Could the Warriors challenge for a playoff spot in the Western Conference with these two driving the bus? We think it’s a legitimate question without a concrete answer just yet. But we’re warming up to the idea.
Thats from NBA.com recap of the games.
Didn't know that was the most points in opening night since Jordan 1989! 21 years!!! that is awesome. Hopefully he stays efficient and doesn't become ball hoggish.
