Game Story

HOUSTON (Ticker) -- The Houston Rockets escaped with a pair of narrow victories in their first two meetings with the Golden State Warriors this season. Tonight, they left nothing to chance.

Hakeem Olajuwon had 18 points, 11 rebounds and a season-high six blocked shots as the Rockets rolled to their largest margin of victory and ninth straight home win, 111-74 over the Warriors.

"(Hakeem) was phenomenal protecting the basket and blocking shots," Houston coach Rudy Tomjanovich said. "We finally had a chance to rest somebody. We've had games where we've been up, but let them back in the game."

After winning the previous two meetings at Golden State by a combined three points, the Rockets put the Warriors away early. Trailing 26-25 with 9:22 remaining in the second quarter, Houston went on an 11-3 run to take the lead for good, 36-29, with 5:33 left.

Rookie Cuttino Mobley scored 17 points and Charles Barkley added 14 for the Rockets, who placed all five starters in double figures and posted their 22nd win in the last 25 encounters with the Warriors. No starter logged more than 33 minutes.

With the win, Houston pulled within one-half game of idle second-place San Antonio in the Midwest Division. The Rockets host the Spurs on Thursday before visiting first-place Utah on Sunday.

"This was really a must win with some of the games we have coming up," Tomjanovich added. "Defense was the key, we got some fast breaks and Cuttino did a good job of getting everybody the ball."

Rookie Antawn Jamison collected 13 points and Tony Delk added 11 off the bench for Golden State, which has lost 10 of 11 on the road.

"I hate making excuses, but this was our fourth game in five days and we knew this game was important and we just didn't get the job done," said Jamison. "We came in scared and we gave them all the confidence they needed."

Jason Caffey scored 10 points for the Warriors, who committed a season-low seven turnovers but shot a woeful 31 percent (27-of-88) from the field.

"I think Houston has three superstars and we backed down from them and we just can't do that," Caffey said. "They (Olajuwon, Barkley and Scottie Pippen) made all their role players go."

Scottie Pippen and Othella Harrington each scored 12 points and rookie Michael Dickerson added 11 for Houston, which shot 55 percent (47-of-86) and was outrebounded, 49-46.

The 37-point margin nearly doubled Houston's previous largest this season. The Rockets twice had recorded 19-point wins.

"Coach was talking to us before the game about being more aggressive," said Mobley. "It's up to me as a point guard to keep our aggressiveness going and to apply defensive pressure."

The Rockets did suffer a significant loss during the contest. Reserve point guard Brent Price suffered torn cartilage in his right meniscus late in the first half. Team physician Walter Lowe said Price would undergo surgery Tuesday morning and be sidelined at least 3-to-4 weeks.

Leading 53-45 with 8:32 remaining in the third quarter, the Rockets exploded with a 22-6 run to put matters to rest.

Pippen made a 3-pointer from the left sideline to begin the run and Dickerson's shot from beyond the arc with 3:08 left capped it, giving the Rockets a 75-51 cushion.

Golden State suffered its worst loss, surpassing a 106-78 setback against Milwaukee on March 3.

"We're disappointed because we played one of our poorest games all year," Golden State coach P.J. Carlesimo said. "We played poorly but Houston had a lot to do with that. We couldn't do anything right."
