The Warriors picked up a road win heading into All-Star break, and the Rockets moved to 20-14 with a win over the flagging Sixers.
They are believing again in the Bay Area. The Golden State Warriors earned a road win Wednesday, edging the Phoenix Suns 106-104 on a Monta Ellis fadeaway with one tick left. The Warriors moved to 13-17 on the season. Given how many road games Golden State has left on the schedule, picking up a victory away from home could be a nice confidence boost going into the back half of the season.
