Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Steve Francis persisted in his effort to drag the Houston Rockets into the playoffs. Francis recorded his first triple-double of the season and rookie Yao Ming drilled his first career 3-pointer as the Rockets continued their road dominance of the Golden State Warriors with a 117-107 victory. The reigning Western Conference Player of the Week, Francis had 13 points, 11 rebounds and a season-high 12 assists as the Rockets extended their road winning streak against the Warriors to 15 games. Francis registered his sixth career triple-double and helped Houston remain unbeaten in Oakland since March 7, 1996. "I thought tonight we played together as a team," Francis said. "It was tough at times, even when we got the big lead, because NBA teams are going to make a run. They made one and we were able to somewhat keep our composure and hit shots down the stretch." Yao's 3-pointer secured the win with 43 seconds left. Francis drove the lane and hurled an over-the-shoulder pass to the wide-open 7-6 center. From near the top of the arc, Yao drained the shot to give Houston a 113-102 lead. "Suddenly, I had the ball and I just had to shoot it," Yao said. "I don't think I need to shoot those because we have a lot of good shooters on this team." A trio of Rockets had 20-point performances. Yao had 23, 14 rebounds and four blocks, Cuttino Mobley led the way with 26 and James Posey added 21 on 7-of-9 shooting as Houston snapped a two-game skid. The Rockets remain tied with Phoenix for eighth place in the Western Conference playoff race, while the Warriors slipped 3 1/2 games off the pace. "We need to win," Francis said. "We're pressed to win and we're hungry every game. Sometimes we lack coming out hard and that's what we need to do." Gilbert Arenas scored 25 points and Antawn Jamison added 21, but the Warriors lost for the sixth time in nine games. "We played uptight the whole night," Jamison said. "Defensively, we were lackadaisical and we kind of went through the motions." Houston coach Rudy Tomjanovich missed a third straight game after doctors discovered a cancerous tumor on the lining of his bladder. He is expected to miss the rest of the five-game road trip, which the Rockets have started 1-2. "Right now, every win is a big win," assistant coach Larry Smith said. "We are in the playoff hunt and we have got to try to keep winning ballgames. Hopefully, we can continue to do so." The Rockets led by six with 6:20 left in the third when Francis hit a jumper to ignite a 13-0 run. Posey converted a three-point play with 5:52 to go as Houston increased its advantage to 70-59. Eddie Griffin dunked before Mobley hit a fadeaway jumper with just under five minutes remaining to open a 74-59 cushion for Houston. Mobley continued his mastery of Golden State this season, having averaged 26.0 points in three games vs. the Warriors. "They shot the ball extremely well, Mobley got hot," Warriors coach Eric Musselman said. "We didn't play relaxed enough in the third quarter and I thought to start the game that we weren't playing with a sense of urgency or a sense of importance with each possession in the third quarter." Posey converted four straight from the line over the next 30 seconds to cap the surge and give the Rockets their biggest lead, 78-59.
