Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Jason Williams and Shane Battier ran right past the Golden State Warriors in the third quarter. Williams scored 13 of his 17 points and Battier nine of his 15 in the third period as the Memphis Grizzlies erased a 12-point deficit and pulled away from the Warriors, 95-85, for their fifth straight victory. Bonzi Wells had 18 points and Pau Gasol 14 for Memphis, which limited Golden State to just under 40 percent shooting (31-of-78) en route to moving 15 games above .500 (39-24) for the first time in franchise history. Memphis, which capped a perfect four-game road trip, has won 10 of its last 12 games and is 24-7 in 2004. "It is exciting for our team to come out and win all four games on the road trip," Grizzlies coach Hubie Brown said. "Every one of the games were decided by our defense, from the middle of the third quarter until the end of the game. We held them to 31 second-half points, but we forced 13 turnovers, which is what we have been doing every night. You can only do that if your kids are working hard." Golden State held a 60-48 lead after a dunk by Jason Richardson three minutes into the third quarter, but Memphis countered with a 30-7 run before the Warriors scored the final basket of the period to pull within 78-69. "It was a tale of two halves for us," Battier said. "In the first half they scored a lot of points and went on a lot of fast breaks. We just did not have the energy. In the second half, we were sparked by Jason Williams. We had a lot more energy and we were able to limit their shots, and we were able to get out on the fast break." The Warriors shot just 4-of-15 and committed eight turnovers in the third quarter and got no closer than eight points in the fourth period. "That all came out of excellent defense - overplaying, forcing a lot of turnovers, chasing down loose balls - and we were able to force the Warriors to miss shots," Brown said. "When you force a team to miss shots, you get out on the break, and you can hurt them. The Jason Williams shooting performance gave us a lot of energy on both ends of the floor." Golden State has struggled lately without injured point guards Nick Van Exel and Speedy Cheaney, and the team again used forward Mike Dunleavy at the point. He had 13 points, seven rebounds and five assists but committed four turnovers. "It is a dilemma right now without a point guard," Golden State coach Eric Mussleman said. "There is no question that we are struggling against defensive pressure and handling the ball. The guys are trying, but it remains difficult without a true point guard." "It was a tough matchup against Jason Williams," Dunleavy said. "He is smaller and quicker, but what can you do? I have to go out and try to guard the guy." Richardson scored 17 points, Clifford Robinson added 15 and Erick Dampier 13 and 11 rebounds for the Warriors, who have lost five in a row. "I do not think not having a true point guard is worrying the team," Dampier said. "I think we need to make sure we are doing a better job of integrating Mike Dunleavy in to the offense. He is bigger than a lot of the other point guards, so we need to be sure to get him the ball in the post and down on the block." The Grizzlies won the season series, 3-1.
