Game Story

BOSTON (Ticker) -- Not even a return home could shake the Boston Celtics out of their doldrums. Jason Richardson scored 31 points as the Golden State Warriors pulled away in the fourth quarter for a 107-95 victory over the Celtics, who suffered their sixth straight loss. "We definitely knew they had lost five in a row and we couldn't have picked a better time to come in here and play them," Golden State forward Troy Murphy said. Coming off an 0-4 road trip, Boston was hoping to reverse its fortunes in its first appearance at the FleetCenter in eight days. Instead, the Celtics allowed the Warriors to shot 52 percent (41-of-79) from the field and extended the longest current slide in the NBA. It is the longest losing streak for the Celtics since they also dropped six in a row from December 30, 2000 to January 8, 2001. Ironically, the final game of that slide was the first for current Boston coach Jim O'Brien. "Right now, we are not getting the job done," Boston forward Paul Pierce said. "I don't think it is anything coach is doing. I am just going to step up and take the blame. It starts with me and Antoine (Walker)." The game was not as close as the final indicated as Golden State led by as many as 22 points in the fourth quarter. The Celtics, who have dropped eight of their last 10, scored the final seven points. Antawn Jamison, who scored 15 of his 29 points in the third quarter, hit a jumper to snap a 55-55 halftime tie and the Warriors never trailed thereafter. They opened an 81-74 lead on Gilbert Arenas' jumper with 11 seconds left in the third quarter before breaking it open in the final period. "We knew that coming into the game they'd been struggling and we didn't want them to catch fire at home and did a good job defensively as far as making it difficult for Paul and Antoine getting it going offensively," Jamison said. Pierce scored 25 points for the Celtics, who heard boos from the crowd beginning midway through the third quarter. Walker was held to just 10 points, making only 5-of-14 shots. The Warriors were playing their second game in as many nights, coming off a 124-113 loss to the league-worst Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday, yet seemed to have more energy than the Celtics, who appeared demoralized in the fourth period. "Pretty resilient group of guys," Golden State coach Eric Musselman said. "Last night was a devastating way to start off a road trip. We had a pretty good team meeting today and the guys were focused, it looked like." "Yesterday when we played Cleveland, we played with no sense of urgency throughout the game," Jamison added. "Tonight, we had a little bit of a lead and guys buckled down on the defensive end." Only six players scored for the Warriors as four starters combined for all but six of their points. Arenas had 23 points and Murphy added 18. "We did not have an answer defensively for their offense," O'Brien said. "They're averaging just what they got tonight - 107 - over the last 10 games, now 11. We did not have the answer we needed to get a win against those guys, and I don't have an easy answer other than we'll get back at it tomorrow and see if we can get this directed in a different way." Golden State started the fourth quarter with a 15-3 spurt, opening a 96-77 cushion on Jamison's layup with 7:53 remaining. Arenas' 3-pointer made it 101-79 with 5:35 to go. "The look on our face," Pierce said. "It seems like when our offense isn't going, it really brings us down. Our body language isn't there and our defense isn't putting (out) a lot of energy. It can't be that way." "To start the fourth quarter, that was probably our best defensive stretch this season," Musselman added. Eric Williams contributed 15 points for the Celtics, who shot 44 percent (39-of-89). Boston made just 5-of-22 3-pointers while Golden State was 9-of-19 from the arc. Murphy grabbed 11 rebounds, helping the Warriors to a 48-35 edge on the boards. Arenas handed out 10 assists. Golden State improved to 1-1 on its five-game road trip that continues with contests against New Jersey, Philadelphia and Portland. "When everyone counts us out we get a surprising win," Arenas said. "Cleveland did it to us last night and we did it to Boston. We got to keep playing and fighting. Last night, we didn't fight and they beat us badly. The rest of this trip, if we still want to make the playoffs, we got to fight for it." Golden State is three games behind Houston in the battle for the final Western Conference playoff spot.
