Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Mookie Blaylock scored 12 of his 18 points during a decisive third-quarter run and newly acquired Larry Hughes had 21 points as the Golden State Warriors routed the Boston Celtics, 122-100.

Blaylock scored nine consecutive points for the Warriors as they turned a five-point deficit into an 83-71 advantage with 1:34 left in the third quarter.

"I was getting good picks and wide open shots and knocking them down," said Blaylock, on his third-quarter performance. "I don't think I did anything different than I've been doing."

Golden State outscored the Celtics, 36-13, in the period and added 35 points in the final quarter en route to its season-high output. The previous high was 115 points, accomplished twice. The Warriors snapped a five-game losing skid.

Hughes, acquired Wednesday from Philadelphia along with forward Billy Owens as part of a three-team deal, added nine rebounds and five assists in his Golden State debut. The Warriors sent veteran guard John Starks and a conditional first-round pick to Chicago, which shipped forward Toni Kukoc to the 76ers.

Late in the fourth quarter, Hughes was serenaded by chants of "Larry, Larry" from an appreciative Oakland Coliseum crowd.

"It helped," Hughes said. "Anytime you have fans chanting your name, that's good. I tried to do a lot of things and help my teammates get involved. The win is key. Nothing would be good without the win. It doesn't matter how many points you score or anything else that happens."

"The young man has a heck of a game," said Warriors coach Garry St. Jean. "More than anything else tonight, I was so impressed at his instincts of how to run a basketball play. He's very poised for a person his age. When you get a young player who can play at that level, it makes everyone else play better. I think the fans, if they could have, would have come down and hugged him."

Golden State improved to 10-0 when leading after three quarters to remain the lone NBA team not to blow a lead entering the final period.

After hitting only 33 percent (7-of-21) of its shots in the opening period, Golden State converted 57 percent (36-of-63) in the final three quarters.

The game featured 98 free throw attempts, with the Warriors making 32-of-45 and Boston converting 36-of-53.

Celtics leading scorer Antoine Walker was held to just 12 points on 5-of-15 shooting but grabbed 11 rebounds. Danny Fortson scored 18 points off the bench, including 12-of-19 from the foul line for Boston, which fell to 5-20 on the road.

"They came out in the second half with a lot more emotion than we had," said Boston guard Paul Pierce, who had trouble finding the range and finished with 11 points on 2-of-11 shooting. "We can't come out of halftime thinking the game is over. They came in with a lot of momentum and carried it through the second half and we didn't do anything about it."

Forward Antawn Jamison, who injured his left knee against Miami in the Warriors' last game before the All-Star break, sat on the bench in street clothes enjoying the rout. Jamison is expected to be out about a month.

Reserve guard Sam Jacobson matched his season high with 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting, and set a career high with four steals before fouling out in the waning minutes.

Jason Caffey had 17 points and nine rebounds and Owens, in his second stint with the club, had seven points, nine rebounds and a season-high six assists in his first game with Golden State, which shot 51 percent (43-of-84) from the floor and held a slim 51-50 rebounding edge.

Dana Barros came off the bench for 16 points and Vitaly Potapenko added 14 and 10 rebounds for the Celtics, who shot 39 percent (30-of-78) and committed 18 turnovers.

"We were all out of whack because of foul trouble," Celtics coach Rick Pitino said. "The guys tried to stay out of serious foul trouble instead of playing hard defensively. If we did that in the second half, we would have won the game. Instead, everybody was afraid to foul out. We got blown out because of that. I think we're a physically and mentally young team. I don't think were physically mature and I definitely don't think were mentally mature.

"We just dont understand how to stay inflated and not worry about leads," Pitino added. "It's very easy to play out in front but when it gets tough, you've got to grind it out defensively and it's going to take some time to get that aspect."
