Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Antawn Jamison scored 30 points as the Golden State Warriors snapped a three-game skid and handed the Memphis Grizzlies their fifth straight defeat, 107-95.

Jamison was 12-of-20 from the field and had eight rebounds for Golden State, which held a 51-29 rebounding advantage and won for just the second time in its last 12 games.

Jamison is averaging 25.5 points in his last four games, shooting 57 percent (41-of-72) over that span.

"Brian (Warriors coach Brian Winters) has done a tremendous job of getting me into my comfort zone," Jamison said. "I know what is expected of me offensively, and he has really challenged me on the defensive end also. He's just doing a tremendous job of getting me in to places where I love to be ... I think it's a contributing facotr to why I'm finally starting to get it going offensively and start to feel comfortable out on the floor."

Larry Hughes chipped in 20 points, eight assists and four steals on his 23rd birthday for Golden State. Danny Fortson added 15 and 12 boards for his 21st double-double of the campaign.

"It feels good to get a win," Hughes said. "It was our plan from shootaround today. I'm just really happy that we were able to get another victory."

"Larry did a nice job," Winters said. "He ran the team, executed things and I think he's looking forward to a day off."

The Warriors led 86-82 after the Grizzlies' Stromile Swift dunked with 7:59 left. But rookie Jason Richardson responded with a slam of his own to start 9-1 run over the next 2:39, and Memphis trailed by double digits thereafter.

Memphis outshot Golden State, 51 percent (37-of-73) to 47 percent (43-of-92). It was the first time in 13 games this season that the Warriors won despite allowing an opponent to shoot 50 percent or better.

"We shot the ball well but we didn't rebound," Memphis coach Sidney Lowe said. "We defended most of the time but we just didn't rebound. We made a little run but then took a couple of quick shots, and we didn't play smart again. We are playing hard but we just aren't playing smart."

Rookie Pau Gasol paced Memphis with 27 points and 10 rebounds. Swift added 21 and nine and Jason Williams had 11 points -- all in the first half -- and 11 assists after missing the team's loss at Sacramento on Monday due to migraine headaches.

"We just didn't get rebounds," Gasol said. "They go hard and we don't crash the boards. We just didn't stop them on the boards tonight, that is just terrible. You can't win a game doing that."

"He's a good rookie," Jamison said of Gasol. "He's real long and agile. He did a good job of finishing at the basket and he was the one guy who really hurt us tonight."

The Grizzlies, who fell to 0-3 against the Warriors this season, once again played without rookie Shane Battier (groin). Rodney Buford started for Battier and scored 14 points.

"Every loss is a disappointing loss, no matter if you lose by 30 points or one point," Buford said. "Our turnovers and quick shots is something that is happening too often and needs to be corrected. Once we correct that, I think we will be all right."

Both teams shot well in the first half, which ended with Golden State holding a 58-56 edge. The Grizzlies shot 59 percent (24-of-41) and the Warriors 56 percent (24-of-43).

"We just need to get back to playing smart basketball, not trick plays, quick shots," Lowe said. "Just fundamental basketball. I expect more when we are right there in ballgames, but we just aren't doing it."
