Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- It took the biggest comeback in team history to end the Vancouver Grizzlies' seven-game losing streak.

Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 24 points and Michael Dickerson had 20 of his 24 in the second half as the Grizzlies rallied for a 97-86 victory over the New Jersey Nets.

"Im happy we fought back and won the game." said Abdur-Rahim, who scored 16 of his points in the first half. "I think we have to do a better job starting the game and be better prepared. There were definitely some things within the team that we have to address and this one win doesn't take away from that. Trusting each other, playing together all the time and being more consistent are definitely things as a team we have to address. But I think this win shows a lot"

Vancouver recorded the largest comeback in franchise history, battling back from a 23-point first-half deficit to hand the Nets their fifth straight loss. The Grizzlies' biggest previous come-from-behind win was on April 4, when they overcame an 18-point deficit for a 102-100 triumph over Houston.

Vancouver used a club record 21-0 run to bridge the final two quarters and take control, while scoring the first 15 points of the fourth quarter. Rahim's follow shot with 9:37 remaining gave the Grizzlies a 73-72 advantage and their first lead since a 6-4 edge early in the opening period.

"It was a good win obviously." Vancouver coach Sidney Lowe said. "But the way we picked up in the second half, the defense was really good. "

With 6:51 left in the third, Dickerson took over. He scored nine of his team's next 19 points to end the period and trim the deficit to 72-65 entering the final 12 minutes.

New Jersey went 5-for-21 (23.8 percent) in the third quarter and was outscored 25-13 after leading the entire first half. The Nets are now 1-8 against the West on the road and now 13-2 when leading after three quarters.

"What can I do,"" asked New Jersey coach Byron Scott. "Bring in a doctor at halftime and surgically put some heart into them? What else can I say? What else can I do? It's tough to swallow. You've got a 19-point lead and to come out and play the way we did is unexceptable."

Vancouver is 1-13 at home when trailing after the third quarter and improve their record to 8-6 against the East teams.

The Nets missed seven straight shots during Vancouver's fourth-quarter surge, allowing the Grizzlies to score 13 straight points before Stephon Marbury found rookie Kenyon Martin for New Jersey's first basket of the period with 5:48 to go.

Marbury and Martin each scored 19 points for the Nets, who got just three points on 1-of-4 shooting in 15 minutes from Keith Van Horn.

"It's very hard to swallow right now." said Marbury, who dished eight of his 11 assists in the first half. "Coach is mad at us, but we're mad at ourselves. This is definitely one of the low points in my career. It's very frustrating to go 0-5 on this raod trip. We have to bounce back, that's a must. I'm mad. I'm frustrated. These are games that you're supposed to win."

New Jersey shot 71 percent (15-of-21) in the first quarter but under 33 percent (19-of-58) thereafter. The Nets managed 14 points in the fourth quarter in the finale of a winless five-game West Coast trip, losing by an average of 16 points per game.

"I told this team at the half that this thing can go from 19 to 25, 26 (points) and its over. Or it can go from 19, 10, (or) 11 and it's a game. And that's exactly what happened," Scott said.
