OAKLAND, Calif., Jan. 25 (UPI) -- Monta Ellis connected from long range at the final buzzer, boosting the Golden State Warriors to a 110-109 victory over the New Jersey Nets.

Golden State used a 13-2 run late in Wednesday night's game to erase an 11-point deficit and tie the score at 106-106 with about a minute to go. Jason Kidd answered with a three-point shot for the Nets and Al Harrington kept the Warriors close with two free throws with about 30 seconds left.

New Jersey missed on their next possession and Golden State, with six seconds to play, hurried up the floor, Baron Davis passed to Ellis, who was alone on the wing and took the open shot that dropped for the game winner as time ran out.

Ellis ended up with 20 points and Harrington had a game high 29 for Golden State, ending a three-game losing streak.

Kidd turned 26 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists for the Nets. Vince Carter added 23 points and 13 assists for New Jersey.
