Golden State Warriors Getting Inside 2009-12-06

Golden State Warriors Getting Inside 2009-12-06Need a ride to Oklahoma City? The Warriors have plenty of room on their charter.

There's even a seat in the front row.

Don Nelson will be among the Warriors absent Monday when the club opens its five-game trip against the Thunder.

The 69-year-old coach announced Friday he'd be resting at home rather than taking the long, cold venture, saying he's still not 100 percent after a recent bout with pneumonia.

"The last thing you want is a setback," Nelson said after Friday's practice. "I have to take the advice from the guys who know more than I do."

Nelson returned from a five-game absence to coach home games Thursday and Saturday against the Rockets and Magic, respectively. But Friday's announcement didn't surprise Warriors players.

"Pneumonia, that's something serious," Monta Ellis told The Oakland Tribune. "It's different from swine flu, the flu or a cold. You can die from pneumonia."

Even 1,000 miles away, Nelson remains the coach of record, so any wins will go on his all-time record. He currently stands 18 victories shy of Lenny Wilkens' career mark.

After Oklahoma City, the Warriors' trip will take them to New Jersey, Chicago, Detroit and Philadelphia.

MAGIC 126, WARRIORS 118: The short-handed Warriors appeared primed for a major surprise, getting Dwight Howard into foul trouble and then taking a five-point lead into the final six minutes. But two old friends combined to spoil the party. Ex-Warriors Mickael Pietrus and Matt Barnes combined for 33 points, including a 3-pointer by Pietrus that got the Magic even at 114-114 with 4:09 to go. The Warriors never led again.
