After Nelson hits milestone, Warriors face Sonics

SEATTLE (Ticker) -- After snapping a skid and helping their coach reach a milestone, the Golden State Warriors will look to keep it going on Sunday.

The Warriors, who snapped a four-game losing streak, will face the Seattle SuperSonics on the road.

Golden State had been going through some struggles but put together an impressive victory Saturday to give Don Nelson his 1,200th career win - joining all-time leader Lenny Wilkens as the only two coaches to reach that mark.

Baron Davis collected 16 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists and Andris Biedrins had 17 points and 13 rebounds as the Warriors posted a 101-80 victory over the New Orleans Hornets.

Mickael Pietrus scored 22 points for Golden State, which shot 49 percent (41-of-83) from the field and dished out 29 assists.

Earl Watson had season highs of 17 points and seven assists as the SuperSonics again won without Ray Allen, rolling to a 94-74 victory over the Hornets on Friday.

Chris Wilcox scored 19 points to lead a balanced attack for the Sonics, who have won twice since Allen was sidelined with a bone bruise on his ankle. The All-Star guard is expected to miss at least two weeks.

Golden State won the first of four matchups between the squads, 107-95, on November 18.
