Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Rookie Jason Richardson scored a season-high 23 points and Danny Fortson added 19 and 11 rebounds as the Golden State Warriors returned home to post a 93-88 victory over the slumping Chicago Bulls.

Richardson, whose previous high was 16 points at Toronto on November 7, also had a career-high eight assists and eight rebounds. He made four 3-pointers -- the most by a Warrior this season -- and is 11-for-24 from beyond the arc.

"I had confidence tonight," Richardson said. "My teammates feel confidence in me and they kept giving me the ball. I was really feeling my shot. I didnt want to lose the game and my teammates didn't want to lose the game, so we came out after halftime and played strong."

The 6-6 guard has made a strong impression on the opposing coach and players.

"I love him, love him," Chicago coach Tim Floyd said. "The only question about him was if he could shoot the ball. He has a chance to be something special, because his feet jump out at you. I loved him when he came to work out for us before the draft. He has a great mental toughness as a defender. Now, if he can get to shoot it like he did against us tonight, then you're talking about a special player with talent. I think Golden State found them one."

"He was the difference," Bulls guard Greg Anthony said. "His ability to shoot the three and create the 3-pointer and create his own shot, the way he plays defense and rebounds ... He's a very solid player. He's going to help them out a lot."

Antawn Jamison had 16 points and eight rebounds and Larry Hughes contributed 14 and 10 assists for Golden State, which spent the majority of their first three weeks on the road.

The Warriors averted a three-game losing streak and evened their home record at 2-2.

Brad Miller scored a season-high 28 points and grabbed 12 rebounds for Chicago.

"That (guy) never shot like that in college," Miller said. "We weren't expecting that at all. His shooting killed us."

Fred Hoiberg had a season-high 18 points for the the Bulls, who have lost seven in a row, including the first four of a seven-game road trip. They have lost five straight to Golden State, including the last three here.

Chicago played without leading scorer Ron Mercer, who sat out with a cold, and third-leading scorer Eddie Robinson, who has a toe injury.

"With Mercer and Robinson out, you have to be pleased with our effort," Floyd said. "This was our best defensive effort of the year. Guys shared the ball, and we did a decent job on the boards against a good rebounding team."

Miller's two free throws tied the game at 70-70 with 1:52 remaining in the third quarter. But his loose-ball foul put rookie Troy Murphy on the line and he made the first of two attempts to give Golden State the lead for good.

The Warriors, who squandered an 11-point lead in the first half, missed 11 of their first 12 shots of the fourth quarter but were able to maintain their lead as Chicago was nearly as inept, shooting only 3-for-10 to open the period.

"We were laid back for a while, and you can't do that," Fortson said. "We thought we could roll them over and they kept playing harder and harder. We got a work out tonight."

Marcus Fizer pulled Chicago within 80-78 with 5:39 left but neither team scored over the next two minutes. Hughes broke the drought with a running jumper with 3:29 left and added another basket to push the advantage to six points.

With nine seconds left, Miller dunked to cut the deficit to 91-88, but the Warriors converted three of four free throws to finish the game.

"We got away from our game plan and tried to make the big play," said Miller, who scored 13 points in the first quarter. "We just had too many mental lapses down the stretch."

Golden State shot just 39.5 percent (34-for-86) from the field but had a season-high 28 assists and a season-low 12 turnovers.

Chicago rookie Trenton Hassell also scored a season-best 13 points and pulled down eight rebounds. The Bulls shot 47 percent (35-for-75) but missed all five of their 3-pointers and made 18-of-30 free throws.
