Game Story

NEW ORLEANS (Ticker) -- Dan Dickau gave the New Orleans Hornets the lead after three quarters and made sure it stood up in the final 12 minutes. Dickau ended the third quarter with a rare four-point play and added 12 of his career-high 23 points in the fourth period to lead the Hornets to their first home win of the season, a 98-89 triumph over the Golden State Warriors. With New Orleans trailing, 66-62, late in the third, Dickau began an 8-0 run with a short jumper with 27 seconds remaining before banking in a 3-pointer from 32 feet as he was fouled by Speedy Claxton with four-tenths of a second to go. Dickau sank the ensuing free throw to give the Hornets a 68-66 edge. "You see something like that and I was kind of feeling like it was going to be our night," Hornets guard Junior Harrington said. "That was a big shot by him. It changed the momentum of the game. It got the crowd into the game and gave the players a little bit of a boost." After scoring 11 points in the first 36 minutes, Dickau took control in the fourth quarter, scoring 12 to eclipse his career high of 18 set on December 10 against New Jersey. The point guard once was a member of the Warriors but never played for them. He was traded to Dallas this summer in the Erick Dampier deal before New Orleans acquired him on December 3 for Darrell Armstrong. "He's been a great, pleasant surprise," Hornets coach Byron Scott said of Dickau, who is averaging 12.9 points in seven games with New Orleans after scoring five points in just 16 minutes with Dallas. "He's played extremely well. He came into my office and said nobody's given him a chance. I told him I was going to give him a chance. He hasn't disappointed me." David Wesley scored 18 points, Harrington added 15 and P.J. Brown had 11 and 11 rebounds for the Hornets, who ended an 11-game losing streak - one shy of the franchise record - and improved to 1-9 at New Orleans Arena, becoming the last team to win at home this season. "You look at every guy in this (locker) room and they play basketball because they love to play and because they want to win," Dickau said. "Each guy in this locker room wouldn't be here if they didn't have those qualities. To get that losing streak off our backs and to move forward and get going from here, it's definitely a good feeling." The Hornets (2-19) rebounded from two overtime road losses in the previous five nights, including a 94-93 decision against the expansion Charlotte Bobcats on Tuesday. "New Orleans had a lot of energy. We didn't match it," Golden State coach Mike Montgomery said. "The Hornets had a sense of urgency. We didn't have it, and it showed. In every statistical category, they beat us. We didn't do much to hang our hat on." Troy Murphy had 25 points and 12 rebounds and Claxton added 21 and a season-high 12 assists for the Warriors, who have dropped eight straight road games against the Hornets franchise, including three at New Orleans. "We didn't show up," said Murphy, who helped the Warriors snap a 12-game skid in Dallas on Tuesday. "We came out a little lackadaisical and took them for granted a little bit. We're never going to be good until we kick the inconsistency. This was a game we were supposed to win." Claxton and Mickael Pietrus scored six points apiece during an 18-4 second-quarter run which gave the Warriors their biggest lead, 36-30. Golden State led, 44-42, at the break. But in the second half, the Hornets - who entered the game last in the league in shooting - shot 50 percent, outrebounded the Warriors, 27-11, and matched their largest point total in regulation this season. "We've been in games. We've had our opportunities," Wesley said. "We've found every different way to lose those games. It's nice to hold on to a lead, keep one down the stretch and win."
