Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Derrick Coleman scored 16 of his season-high 34 points in the fourth quarter as the Charlotte Hornets squandered a 12-point second-half lead but held on for a 102-99 victory over the Golden State Warriors.

Coleman also grabbed 17 rebounds as he led the Hornets to their second straight win. They went 1-3 as the 6-10 forward missed four games with a sprained ankle but he returned with 26 points against Chicago on Sunday.

"I really got into a rhythm of shooting the basketball and my teammates kept going to me down the stretch," said Coleman, who recorded his 19th double-double of the season. "I was trying to go to the basket to the draw the foul and make the shot.

"My ankle is still feeling sore and the tendon in my foot. I'm out there. I'm really trying to take what the defense is giving me more than anything and still be a team player as far as passing the ball."

Eddie Jones added 19 points for the Hornets, who are sixth in the Eastern Conference standings, one game behind Philadelphia and four games ahead of Milwaukee and Detroit.

"We need different guys to give us something, and tonight was Derrick's time," Jones said. "It takes more than one person to get it going for the team, so whenever he can give that to us, it's wonderful."

The Hornets, who began a three-game road trip by improving to 10-19 away from Charlotte Coliseum, are 17-4 when Coleman scores at least 20 points.

"Derrick did it all for us tonight," Charlotte coach Paul Silas said. "He had points, rebounds, played good defense; you name it. We needed somebody to step up and he was the man. The Warriors played us very well tonight. They played us right to the wire. It took a great effort from Derrick for us to get the win."

Larry Hughes, whose team honored him with Headband Night, scored 21 points and Donyell Marshall had 19 for the Warriors, who have lost three straight and 11 of 15.

"We have to come out better, as far as shooting the ball," Hughes said. "If our shots aren't falling, then we just have to play defense. We know that it'll come back to us. We'll get easier looks, get to the the free throw and try to make other plays."

Coleman gave Charlotte a 61-49 lead with a basket with 9:04 left in the third quarter. But Golden State went on a 5-0 spurt, moving within five points on Hughes' jump shot with 7:39 left.

Although the Hornets pushed their advantage back to nine points with 4:51 left in the quarter when Jones hit the second of two free throws, the Warriors eventually whittled the deficit down to 72-71 on Jason Caffey's shot with 1:49 remaining in the period.

"Our first unit played really well, then our second unit let down a little bit and didn't keep it going," observed Silas. "We got out to a big lead in the beginning, and then they caught up."

Golden State's rookie Vontego Cummings scored the first five points of the fourth quarter, tying the game with a dunk with left to play. Hughes broke the deadlock with layup and later gave the Warriors a four-point advantage -- their largest lead in the game -- with a jumper with 8:37 remaining.

"We dug ourselves a substantial hole, still down by eight at the half, but I just love that tenacity to come back," Golden State coach Garry St. Jean said. "We gave ourselves a heck of a shot to win the game."

But the Hornets outscored Golden State, 16-8, to take a 94-90 lead on Coleman's basket with 1:21 left. The Warriors pulled within two points on four more occasions but Charlotte made 8-of-10 free throws down the stretch to seal its first win in Oakland since January 1997.

"I've been watching Derrick Coleman for a lot of years, and when he's playing healthy, he's as dominant a forward as there is in the league," St. Jean said. "He played a fabulous basketball game. Every time they went to him down the stretch, he responded."

Elden Cambell contributed 18 points and 10 rebounds and Anthony Mason had 10, nine, and eight assists for the Hornets, who shot 44 percent (34-of-78) from the field, including just 2-of-12 from 3-point range. They converted 32-of-42 (76 percent) from free-throw line.

"We missed a lot of shots," Jones said. "If we would have made our shots, and if I would havve made half of the shots I took, it wouldn't have even been a close game," said Jones, who made just 6-of21 field goals. "They attacked the basket and got to the foul line a lot. They basically did all of the right things. We just wanted it a little bit more."

Cummings finished with 18 points off the bench and Caffey collected 16 for the Warriors, who made a dismal 1-of-12 (.083) from beyond the 3-point arc -- their worst long-range performance since a 1-of-11 effort against Sacramento on February 20.

"We're not shooting the ball well right now," Cummings said. "Iin order for us to get back into the game, we have to make up for it on defense. Nobody's shooting the ball well, we're all struggling with our shots. I think we made up for it on the defensive end in the second."

Golden State shot just 19 percent (5-of-26) in the first quarter before hitting for 52 percent (29-of-56) over the final three periods.
