Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Maybe Vancouver Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley told his hapless team that the best way to find a new home would be to win a couple of games.

Mike Bibby and Shareef Abdur-Rahim scored 22 points each as the Grizzlies improved to 2-0 since the NBA granted them permission to seek a new city with a 99-89 victory over the Golden State Warriors before the smallest crowd ever at GM Place.

The Grizzlies, who had not won consecutive games since November 6-8, have won two straight at home for just the third time this season.

Playing before a paltry crowd of 10,612, the Grizzlies beat a Western Conference foe -- albeit an equally bad one -- for the first time in 23 tries dating to a 109-106 double-overtime win over Phoenix on November 29.

"The fans that are here, when they cheer for us, it's still the same effect," Vancouver coach Sidney Lowe said. "Maybe the house is not packed, but the ones that are there, you know that they are cheering for you and the guys realize that."

"We're not concentrating on (the low attendance and the potential move)," Abdur-Rahim said. "We make jokes about it and try to make light of it. We try not to make it a distraction."

Antawn Jamison had 24 points and 10 rebounds for the Warriors, who have lost seven of eight. But Golden State's best player also missed 19-of-30 shots and committed five turnovers before fouling out.

"It was one of those games where we had opportunities to pull it out but we didn't," Jamison said. "I hurt my team tonight. I made some mistakes out there, not making the extra pass and allowing myself to be distracted. I lost my focus. All the little things you need to do, I didn't do them."

Clinging to an 87-85 lead with 3:20 to play, the Grizzlies pulled away when Bibby sank his fifth 3-pointer and Abdur-Rahim followed with a seven-footer to make it a seven-point cushion with 2:21 remaining.

"I think we've grown up a little and we're getting better at (finishing strong)," Abdur-Rahim said. "We haven't been together that long, we're still a young team if you look at the group of guys. It's good for us to get a win, keep the stretch going."

Bibby was 8-of-15 from the floor and helped the Grizzlies to an 8-of-12 performance from beyond the arc.

Michael Dickerson scored 20 points and grabbed a career-high nine rebounds and Bryant Reeves added 12 and nine for Vancouver, which shot 53 percent (37-of-70) and held a 45-42 rebounding edge.

"I was just trying to focus on going to the glass tonight," Dickerson said. "Their guards take a lot of shots and usually when a guard takes a shot, the rebound is long. So I was trying to read that, be aggressive and get the rebound."

Erick Strickland provided a significant boost off the bench for the Grizzlies with 10 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in 25 minutes.

"That's what I came here to do," Strickland said, playing his fourth game with the Grizzlies since being dealt by the New York Knicks. "You might as well go out and keep winning. I think the guys are going to go out and get a snowball effect going."

Bob Sura scored 16 points and rookie Marc Jackson and Mookie Blaylock added 14 apiece for the Warriors, who shot 38 percent (35-of-92) and yielded 18 points off turnovers.

"One of these days, we're all going to play well at the same time," Golden State coach Dave Cowens said. "Get everybody clicking and shooting the ball well. We've come up dry so many times. It's really hard."

Larry Hughes scored 13 points off the bench for Golden State, which posted a 102-101 triumph here December 30, when NBA commissioner David Stern still believed Heisley and the Grizzlies could survive in Vancouver.

The Grizzlies rallied for a 99-98 victory against Boston here on Tuesday -- one day after the league gave Heisley permission to relocate after the owner disclosed that he would lose $40 million this season and even more next season.
