Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Calbert Cheaney saved the Golden State Warriors from an embarrassing loss. Cheaney scored 10 of his season-high 18 points in overtime as the Warriors surrendered a 12-point lead before escaping with a 115-109 victory over the New Orleans Hornets in the first triple-overtime game in the NBA this season. It was Golden State's longest game since a quadruple-overtime win vs. New Jersey on February 1, 1987. It was the longest game in Hornets' franchise history. After not scoring more than eight points in a game this season, Cheaney made two layups in the second overtime. In the third extra session, he hit two jumpers as Golden State built a 108-102 lead. "(I just had to) be aggressive, that's all," Cheaney said. "Nothing special with the shot, just trying to make something happen. Both teams seemed like they were getting a little bit tired, and I think our conditioning took over there for us in the third overtime." The Warriors relinquished a 12-point fourth-quarter lead by missing 14-of-17 shots and 5-of-9 free throws. New Orleans' P.J. Brown, who collected 14 points and 15 rebounds, knotted the contest, 86-86, with three seconds left in regulation. "The play wasn't designed for me," Brown said. "Darrell (Armstrong) lost the ball, it was a loose ball and I knew the time was running down and I knew I had to get it up as quick as possible. A quick shot to try to get it into overtime and hopefully win the game." "This team showed a lot of character," Cheaney said. "I think we can build on it, consider the situation we were in. We got down, came back, got down again. We have a very good basketball team, it's a matter of putting it together." Despite the valiant comeback, New Orleans coach Byron Scott was not pleased with his team's failure to build on Monday's win. "We lost the game three times, that's basically how I look at it," Scott said. "We really should've won it before overtime and all three overtimes we should've won the game. "I question our guys aggressiveness at the beginning of the game. The first half we didn't play hard like we did last night. The second half we did and we're not good enough to do that. I don't understand that. And then we made some bonehead mistakes. We just didn't play very smart at the end." Speedy Claxton scored six of his 21 points in the first overtime when Golden State rallied on Mike Dunleavy Jr.'s 3-pointer with 12 seconds remaining that tied the game, 97-97, in the first overtime. "I made six straight points and just got it going," Claxton said. "I didn't want us to lose. Especially the way we had the lead going into the fourth, it's just a great comeback win for us." "I was proud of the guys, we played very hard tonight," Golden State coach Mike Montgomery said. "We made some mistakes late and missed some free throws. Dunleavy's three was huge, we were looking for a two. I thought Calbert was really good also, he did a great job scoring the ball." After being told earlier in the day by Dr. Norm Zemel that his injured right hand did not need surgery, Jason Richardson collected 26 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists. "It's doing pretty good, it's just a little sore," Richardson said. "It's going to be like that after games, I've just got to ice it down and take it from there. It (hurts more) with the dunks and pulling all the way back for the threes." All-Star Jamaal Magloire was dominant in the middle for the Hornets, scoring 27 points and grabbing 14 rebounds. "It's frustrating," Magloire said. "We gave ourselves chances to win three times and we blew each one so it is frustrating. We feel like we made a step back and that's never good." Magloire refused to use fatigue from last night's win in Utah as an excuse for the loss. "I don't think we were energy drained," he said. "All that's mental, I just think that they made some shots and we didn't and that was the difference in the game."
