OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- The Golden State Warriors return
home as they welcome the Utah Jazz on Monday in the first of a
three-game homestand.

Troy Murphy had 12 points and 12 rebounds and Jason Richardson
contributed 10 and six as Golden State finished its road trip
with a dismal 0-3 record after dropping a 92-75 decision to San
Antonio on Saturday.

In their last five games, the Warriors are shooting just 36
percent from the field and have failed to notch at least 90
points in any game during this span.

Mehmet Okur scored 26 points and Carlos Boozer added a
season-high 15 and eight rebounds in Saturday's 100-95 loss at
home to New Orleans/Oklahoma City. Forward Andrei Kirilenko had
a tough outing, scoring just eight points on 2-of-7 shooting.

Rookie guard Deron Williams has been impressive in his last two
game, connecting on 13-of-24 shots (54 percent), including
4-of-6 from the arc. He's fourth on the Jazz in scoring (9.5)
and second in assists (3.7).

Golden State rallied from a 11-point fourth quarter deficit to
post a 94-90 come-from-behind victory over Utah on November 25
in Salt Lake City. Richardson scored 29 points for the Warriors
and Williams tallied a career-best 24 points in a losing
effort.
