GAME RECAP

The Vancouver Grizzlies recorded the first three-game winning streak in franchise history as Blue Edwards scored 12 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter in a 107-96 triumph over the Golden State Warriors, who have lost 14 straight games.

The Grizzlies had never been able to post more than two wins in a row since joining the NBA for the 1995-96 season. A break in the schedule finally came this week as they hosted the hapless Denver Nuggets for an 88-77 win on Tuesday before sweeping this home-and home series against the Warriors. Vancouver posted an 88-80 victory at Golden State on Friday.

"It's funny, three wins in a row doesn't seem like much of a milestone when you've won 40 in a row at home and things like that in the past," Grizzlies coach Brian Hill said, referring to his time as Orlando Magic coach. "You have to realize that we're in the infancy of the franchise, the third year, and we've got to take baby steps, one step at a time."

"It's a small feat, but we know we're going in the right direction," said center Bryant Reeves, one of the original Grizzlies. "Three in a row is big, especially after losing 13 in a row. It puts us back on the right track."

Joe Smith scored a season-high 32 points for the Warriors, who have been unable to win since December 26th at Denver. Golden State's losing streak is its longest since dropping 16 straight from December 29th, 1984 to January 31st, 1985.

"We have a long losing streak right now that we're trying to get off of," Smith said. "Everybody came into this game in the frame of mind that this is a game that we needed and we had to go out and play hard to get it. We knew they wouldn't just roll over and let us run away with it, but they just did a better job than us."

Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored half of his 20 points in the third quarter and Otis Thorpe contributed 15, 12 rebounds and seven assists for Vancouver, which owned a 46-36 advantage on the boards.

"Everybody just stepped up and did what they do best," Abdur-Rahim said. "I think that's a sign of us getting better. Guys that usually don't have to score are scoring big."

Todd Fuller, who scored all 10 of his points in the fourth quarter, hit a layup to give Golden State a 78-77 edge early in the final period. That was the Warriors' final lead, because Vancouver answered with a pivotal 12-2 run.

Abdur-Rahim sparked the spurt with a pair of free throws with 9:50 to play before Edwards sank two foul shots and a seven-footer. Smith came back with two from the line, but Vancouver reeled off the next six points.

Pete Chilcutt drained a 15-footer, Lynch dunked and Edwards capped the run with a pull-up jumper on the break, building an 89-80 cushion with 6:45 remaining.

"Some of the bench gave them a little bit of a lift," Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "We played much better than we did last night and we got a lift from some people off the bench, but we didn't defend them."

Fuller responded with back-to-back buckets and Smith drilled a jumper to cut the deficit to three, but Edwards fed Lynch for a jumper and hit a layup to push the lead to 93-86.

Bimbo Coles scored half of his four points with a jumper and Smith followed with a 19-footer to once again pull the Warriors within three. Chilcutt responded with a 17-foot jumper before Smith sank two free throws to make it 99-96 with 48 seconds to go.

It was all Vancouver from there, as the Warriors failed to score the rest of the way. Lee Mayberry sank two free throws and Edwards fed Lynch for a fast-break dunk before scoring the final four points to seal the victory.

"The only problem we had was giving them second opportunities on the boards and let them back into the game," Thorpe said. "But we're real happy to come out with the win."

Lynch and Sam Mack scored 12 points apiece and rookie Antonio Daniels chipped in 11 for the Grizzlies, who shot 51 percent (42-of-82) from the field and held the Warriors to 40 percent (35-of-87).

Abdur-Rahim has averaged 25.3 points in three wins against the Warriors this season.

Brian Shaw had a season-high 20 points but was held scoreless in the fourth quarter for Golden State, which will have trouble winning again before the All-Star break. The Warriors play at Portland and Seattle before coming home to take on Chicago, Utah and San Antonio.

"Well we aren't beating anybody right now," Shaw concluded. "The back-to-back losses and 14 in a row, that speaks for itself."
