Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Mitch Richmond was ready to complete a triumphant return to the Bay Area, until he ran into Donyell Marshall.

Richmond scored 18 of his 24 points in the second half against his former team, but had his potential game-tying layup blocked by Marshall in the waning moments as the Golden State Warriors hung on for a 100-96 victory over the Washington Wizards.

Marshall scored 19 of his team season-high 27 points in the first half and grabbed eight rebounds, but the last of his three blocked shots was his most important contribution.

After two free throws by Terry Cummings gave Golden State a 98-96 lead with 14.8 seconds left, Richmond blew past his defender but Marshall was there waiting to record the rejection.

"I just didn't get the shot high enough," Richmond said. "I forgot how long Donyell is. I tried to get some contact and get a three-point play, but I wasn't able to do it."

"I thought it was going to be a missed shot. I challenged Antawn (Jamison) to get the rebound," Marshall said. "But it looked like Mitch double-pumped there a little bit, so I had time to get my arms up there."

The loose ball went to Chris Mills, who was fouled at mid-court and sank both free throws with 7.7 seconds left. Richmond missed a 3-pointer and the Warriors grabbed the rebound, running out the clock for their third win in four games.

Juwan Howard scored 25 points to pace the Wizards, who had won the last five meetings with the Warriors.

"We really didn't defend well until the fourth quarter," said Warriors coach P.J. Carlesimo.

Richmond's third 3-pointer put Washington in front, 95-94, with 2:01 remaining. He had a chance to pad the lead, but after Cummings missed two free throws, Richmond missed a fallaway jumper in the lane.

John Starks, who made 3-of-12 shots for nine points, faked a 3-pointer and fed a wide-open Cummings for a lay-in, giving Golden State the advantage, 96-95, with 62 seconds left. It was the only assist in the second half for Starks after he collected nine over the opening 24 minutes.

"John did a great job in making Mitch work. He didn't have a great game offensively, but what he gave us on the defensive end was big," Carlesimo said. "He also did a great job of finding open guys and getting us easy baskets on the offensive end."

Rod Strickland sank a foul shot to tie the game, 96-96, but Cummings' free throws put Golden State ahead to stay.

"We were right there. I thought we had it, we had a good lead going into the fourth quarter," Richmond said. "But we let them get on the foul line early and they took advantage of it."

Cummings and Dampier had 16 points and 10 rebounds apiece, helping the Warriors to a 50-37 edge on the glass. Golden State hit 12-of-15 from the foul line in the final period.

"Very few teams get blown out in the playoffs, and during the end of the year, you play a lot more closer games anyway," Cummings said. "I think in the long run, these close games benefit us, especially as a young team."

Marshall scored nine points as Golden State raced to a 16-2 lead, but the Wizards pulled within 24-18 by the end of the opening period. Washington took its first lead at 44-43 on two free throws by Richmond with 3:35 left before halftime. Golden State ended the first half with an 8-0 spurt, capped by Dampier's tip-in, to take a 51-47 lead into the break.

Howard had seven points in a 15-2 burst in the third quarter that seemed to give the Wizards control. Richmond capped that tear with a 3-pointer and layup, creating a 73-65 cushion with 2:46 left. Howard was 7-of-7 from the field and scored 15 points in period, helping his team to a 77-70 lead.

Otis Thorpe scored 19 points and Strickland added 16 and 12 assists for the Wizards, who have dropped six of their last seven road games.

"Both teams had opportunities to get the win tonight, but it was about who wants that (ball)," said Wizards coach Bernie Bickerstaff. "They came up with loose balls and that has nothing to do with size. It's about sticking your nose in it and getting it."
