The Warriors were perfect this week! Yeah, only two games were played but they were able to steal a game from the division-leading Clippers before mugging some old heads in Phoenix a couple days later. The MVP was Monta Ellis who averaged 29 points and shot 49% from the field over two games. The highlight of the week also came from Ellis whose fadeaway jumper over Grant Hill secured the 106-104 victory for Golden State. Sure, fans of this team didn't have any All-Star representatives and haven't had one since Latrell Sprewell back in '97, but the last few days weren't all bad. #glasshalffull —Ralph Warner
