Monta Money in 7 Minutes
Rookie Ellis scores 7 points in 8 minutes from Mercury
Warriors rookie guard Monta Ellis got his first action in seven games, and was quite impressive.
He checked in for point guard Baron Davis at the 8:16 mark of the fourth quarter with the Warriors down 91-73 and helped turn garbage time into a glimmer of hope. He didn't get time at point guard, but he displayed his scoring ability. Playing alongside Jason Richardson and Derek Fisher on the perimeter, Ellis scored seven points during the Warriors' 104-94 loss Tuesday.
