--G Monta Ellis was 9-for-29 while Stephen Curry was 13-for-23, but nonetheless it was Ellis who got the call with the Warriors one hoop away from stunning the Thunder on the road Tuesday night. Unfortunately for the Warriors, the night-long trend continued as Ellis misfired on a 20-footer just before the horn that ended the overtime, allowing Oklahoma City to escape with a one-point win.
--G Stephen Curry played 49 minutes in the loss, remarkable in that Warriors coach Keith Smart has almost always been cautious with the second-year guard's minutes. Curry had played 40 or more minutes just 14 times prior to Tuesday, as opposed to going 30 or fewer minutes 26 times. Coincidentally, his previous season-high of 46 had also come against the Thunder on Dec. 5, a game in which he poured in 39 points. He had 35 on Tuesday.
--F Dorell Wright partially made up for an awful shooting night (2-for-13) with 10 rebounds. It was his eighth double-figure rebounding night of the season, the first in which he scored fewer than 12 points. He finished with seven.
--C Andris Biedrins (sprained left ankle) missed his seventh consecutive game Tuesday. He won't play Wednesday at Memphis, but he is considered a possibility for Saturday's home game against Dallas.
--G Acie Law (bone spurs in right wrist) didn't make the trip to Oklahoma City and Memphis, and he is considering season-ending surgery. It's unlikely he will play again this season.
