Game Story

MEMPHIS, Tennessee (Ticker) -- In a duel of desperation, the Golden State Warriors were determined, while the Memphis Grizzlies were demoralized. Antawn Jamison scored a season-high 37 points as the Warriors snapped a six-game losing streak with a 108-101 victory over the winless Grizzlies, who tied the worst start in franchise history. Troy Murphy and Gilbert Arenas fueled a big third quarter for the Warriors, who had not won since upsetting San Antonio on opening night. Rookie coach Eric Musselman had expressed concern that his young team was not seeing some of its hard work pay off. "There was a sense of urgency," Jamison said. "We had to find a way to pull it out." The Warriors found a way against the Grizzlies, who were beaten on the backboards throughout the game and heard boos from the sparse crowd of 10,112 early in the fourth quarter, when they fell behind by 25 points. "We need to have more of a dirty-work mind-frame, where we're creating opportunities for ourselves instead of always reacting," Grizzlies forward Shane Battier said. "It's a long season, so it's way too early for frustration. We've got (74) more games to go, so we've got to be patient but at the same time get that sense of urgency. We need to get this thing going." Memphis coach Sidney Lowe said he was going to shake things up and did, starting Gordan Giricek for shooting guard Wesley Person and Lorenzen Wright for center Stromile Swift, who was not with the team due to personal reasons. He also gave extended playing time to rookie guard Mike Batiste and point guard Earl Watson. None of it worked. The Grizzlies fell behind for good midway through the first quarter and only made the final score respectable with a futile late surge. At 0-8, they matched last season's club for the worst start in franchise history. "I go out in public and people know you play for the Grizzlies and they look at you like, `What the (heck)?'" Memphis guard Jason Williams said. "People are not willing to get up off their (rear) and play, but we can't make them - they're grown men. You have to do what you can do." Murphy scored 10 of his 18 points and Arenas handed out eight of his 15 assists in the third quarter, when Golden State widened a three-point halftime lead to 81-69. Jamison made 14-of-26 shots and 9-of-10 free throws. He scored nine points in a 13-0 run that opened the final period and gave the Warriors a 94-69 advantage with 7:50 left. "We knew the game was far from being over, so we weren't complacent at all," Jamison said. "We wanted to come in and get a nice run and we stayed focused, doing the things that were working for us all game." Lowe called his second timeout of the period, and the Grizzlies came out inspired. But it was too late. "We don't need to wait until the fourth quarter, when we see ourselves down," Grizzlies forward Pau Gasol said. "We need to play harder. It's going to come, but we've got to play hard from the first minute of the game and not wait until it's too late." Erick Dampier had 18 points, 16 rebounds and three blocks for the Warriors, who shot 47 percent (41-of-88) and held a 53-36 advantage on the boards. Gasol scored 24 points and Giricek added 21 for the Grizzlies, who may have subjected a local columnist to some embarrassment. He wrote he would play the tuba in front of The Pyramid if the Grizzlies lost to the Warriors. "I want to see that guy playing the tuba," Warriors coach Eric Musselman said. "If we could get a copy of it, the players would love to watch it before practice sometime." Golden State missed its first seven shots while committing five turnovers but trailed just 6-0. Memphis fell behind for good at 18-16 on Dampier's tip-in with 2:47 to go in the first quarter. In the third quarter, the Warriors made 14-of-21 shots and had assists on all but three baskets. Arenas, who scored just five points, set up three of four hoops by Murphy, who also added a pair of free throws. "In the first half, I was like 1-for-5 or 1-for-6, so I decided that everybody else was hitting shots and I would get them the ball," Arenas said. "If you see you're not hitting, you have to do other things to help the team win."
