GAME RECAP

Donyell Marshall scored a career-high 30 points and grabbed 12 rebounds and Joe Smith added 18 and 10 as the Golden State Warriors won at home for the first time in 1998 with a 101-87 victory over the Boston Celtics.

Tony Delk contributed 17 points and Erick Dampier added 13 for Golden State, which stopped an overall seven-game losing streak and won at home for the first time since defeating Denver, 87-75, on December 23rd, a span of 11 straight setbacks. The Warriors scored 100 points for the first time since December 16th and improved to 4-2 when doing so.

"He defended well," said Golden State coach P.J. Carlesimo about Marshall. "It's the best game he has played in a long time. He and Smith did a great job in checking Antoine Walker."

Antoine Walker had 26 points and 12 rebounds and Ron Mercer added 20 and six for the Celtics, who fell to 1-3 on their eight-game road trip. Boston's only lead came when Andrew DeClercq opened the game with a pair of free throws. The Celtics missed their first 15 field-goal attempts on the fourth quarter until Dana Barros made a 15-footer to cut the deficit to 85-72 with 3:33 left.

"The Warriors played well tonight," Walker said. "They are just starting to play basketball. They are probably putting everything behind them and just playing ball. Some shots could have been fouls and some of mine just didn't go in. You can have nights like this."

Golden State point guard Muggsy Bogues, activated from the injured list earlier in the day, left the game with leg cramps in the third quarter.

Smith had 10 points in the first period as the Warriors took a 22-12 lead. Golden State's lead went from seven to 13 points in the second period and Delk hit a five-footer at the buzzer, giving the Warriors a 51-38 cushion at the break.

"It was our defense not letting them get into the press," said Carlesimo. "Our guys were playing hard and we only gave up 12 points in the first quarter. Our forwards did a great job. We're not a very good perimeter shooting team, probably lowest in the league. We need to improve in a lot of ways our consistency is not there."

Walker capped a 6-0 spurt with a layup, cutting the deficit to 60-52 with 6:30 left in the third. Mercer hit a 19-footer to pull the Celtics within 66-60 with 3:01 remaining in the third. The Warriors took a 70-62 lead into the fourth after Smith converted a pair of free throws with 42 seconds to go.

Golden State scored the first nine points of the fourth to take a 79-62 lead when Marshall hit a layup with 7:46 remaining. Marshall had a dunk to give the Warriors their biggest lead of the game, 99-81, with 51.8 seconds to go.

"We showed what this team is caapable of doing, however we have to do it more often," Marshall said. "This is one of the hardest working teams and we have to match it out there with our intensity."
