Monta Ellis had 33 points, seven assists and five rebounds as the Warriors held off the Houston Rockets 106-97 at Oracle Arena on Sunday.

Golden State has won five of its past eight games. Four of those were against winning teams. The Warriors (10-14) head into Monday night's game against Phoenix looking for their first three-game win streak of the season and get closer to their goal of reaching .500 before the All-Star break.

"We're just having each others' back," Ellis said. "Scrapping. Intensity. We're ready to turn this thing around. Right now is a great opportunity."
