Game Story

HOUSTON (Ticker) -- Mookie Blaylock's 3-pointer with 37 seconds remaining capped a late fourth-quarter rally as the undermanned Golden State Warriors overcame a triple-double by rookie Steve Francis for a 115-110 victory over the Houston Rockets.

Blaylock, who finished with 18 points and 11 assists, made a key block of Matt Bullard's potential game-tying 3-pointer with 11 seconds left to secure the Warriors' first road victory in seven tries.

"I had an aggressive look and took the shot," Blaylock said. "We had the numbers on the fast break and I figured if I missed, we had guys down there that could get the rebound."

At the other end, Blaylocck relied on his experience to block Bullard's shot.

"We played together at Atlanta and I know his game," Blaylock said. "I know that Matt's not going to jump too high. I just tried to get in front of him and contest the shot. I was fortunate to block it, but he threw it into me."

"A foul not being called was ridiculous -- it's a farce," said Rockets coach Rudy Tomjanovich said.

The Warriors used only eight players. They were without swingman Mark Davis, who was serving a one-game suspension for his fight with Dallas' Shawn Bradley in Tuesday's loss, and Sam Mack, Terry Cummings, and Erick Dampier all were nursing injuries.

Blaylock's last-minute heroics overshadowed a remarkable game by Francis, who had his first career triple-double with 25 points, 17 rebounds and 14 assists. However, Francis made some bad decisions down the stretch, including a crucial turnover in the waning seconds which opened the door for Golden State.

Francis became only the fourth Houston rookie to achieve the feat, joining Elvin Hayes, Ralph Sampson and Art Williams.

"We gave the game away tonight," Francis said. "Late in the game, we gave them a lot of easy shots. They made a lot of free throws and we missed some free throws. Mookie did a great job leading his team and he hit a real big shot for them late. I commend him for that."

"Steve was great but I would have taken a single-double with a win," said an obviously disturbed Tomjanovich.

Francis made two free throws to give the Rockets a 108-102 lead with 2:55 left. But Sam Jacobson hit a 20-footer and Donyell Marshall added two from the line to cut the deficit to 108-106.

Shandon Anderson extended the lead with a layup before rookie Vonteego Cummings converted a drive to the basket, making the score 110-108, setting up Blaylock's late dagger.

"I told him to go down and if he got a good look to take it," Warriors coach Garry St. Jean said. "It was exactly what we wanted. Sometimes everything falls into place.

"That was quite a job by our guys," St. Jean continued. "We've been talking about how it takes every single guy for us to be successful. We executed well down the stretch on both ends of the floor."

Antawn Jamison continued his fine play with 25 points and 10 rebounds and Cummings had a season-high 23 off the bench in 26 minutes for the Warriors, who defeated Houston for the first time in seven outings.

"We've been in a position to win eight of our last 10 games but we either didn't make a key stop or we would take as bad shot," Jamison said. "But not tonight. We found a way to win tonight."

The Rockets wasted a fine performance by journeyman center Anthony Miller, who had a career-high 19 points and 12 rebounds.

"We made some costly mistakes late," Tomjanovich said. "Leaving Mookie alone (for the 3-point attempt) really hurt us."

Golden State came out blazing in the first quarter, shooting 70 percent, including 5-of-5 from 3-point range, to take a 37-32 lead. Francis scored nine second-quarter points as the Rockets tied the score at 62-62. Houston took an 88-87 advantage into the final period.
