Game Recap

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Two-time All-Star Baron Davis has a simple nickname around the Golden State locker room.

``He's the boss,'' said teammate Mickael Pietrus after Davis scored 33 points and handed out nine assists in the Warriors' 108-100 win over New York on Monday. ``I thought when he first came here he was going to be like some big star where you couldn't talk to him. But he's helping everybody out and making us all a better team.''

Davis scored 13 points in the third quarter, when the Warriors took control of the game for good. He also outdueled the Knicks' Stephon Marbury in a matchup of two of the NBA's top point guards.

Marbury had 31 points and eight assists, but was held in check by the combination of Davis and Derek Fisher for most of the game before scoring 15 in the fourth quarter.

Troy Murphy had his 29th double-double of the season for the Warriors with 19 points and 19 rebounds.

Golden State has won five of its last six games and nine overall since acquiring Davis in a Feb. 24 trade from New Orleans. The Warriors had won only 16 games all season before Davis' arrival.

Wow, nineteen boards by Murphy? He's a good looking all-around player. Nice shooting from the free throw line - that's what made the difference, at least from looking at the box score. Davis shot well and Pietrus put up 17 points from the bench. Nice win.

Its a shame that there are so many good teams and teams with great potential in the Western Conference and that only 8 can advance.
