Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Rookie Michael Dickerson scored a season-high 26 points and the hot-shooting Houston Rockets handed the slumping Vancouver Grizzlies their seventh straight loss, 107-92.

The Grizzlies, who entered the contest yielding an NBA-high 102.1 points per game, have not won since a 93-83 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on February 23. The losing streak is Vancouver's longest since dropping seven in a row from March 12-21, 1998.

"This team has been in turmoil since they started," said Rockets forward Scottie Pippen of the Grizzlies. "They haven't made any serious runs at the playoffs or contending at all. They've made some improvements, but I don't see them really getting better at all."

Dickerson, whose previous high was 21 points at Dallas on February 11, was 9-of-12 from the field and 5-of-6 from beyond the arc to lead the Rockets to a sparkling 58 percent (35-of-60) from the field.

"When I get the open shots, I've got to knock those down," said Dickerson. "That's what I get paid for."

"We didn't have any answers tonight for this team," added Vancouver coach Brian Hill. "They shot 61 percent in the first half and 58 for the game. Everything we tried defensively, none of it worked. So I have to take responsibility for that."

Charles Barkley had 15 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists before earning an ejection after questioning a call by referee Scott Foster with 3:02 to play. Barkley shouted an expletive while pointing a finger at Foster just prior to walking off the court.

"Two referees were absolutely terrible tonight and that's all I have to say about that," Barkley said.

Brent Price scored a season-high 19 points and Pippen added 17 for the Rockets, who won at Vancouver for the second time this season.

"We came out with a lot of intensity," said Price. "We pretty much blew it open in the first half. We finally established our inside game to cause the double-teams and we always lick our chops when we see those because we know some open jumpers are coming."

Shareef Abdur-Rahim had 26 points and 12 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who shot 39 percent (27-of-70).

"Good players don't force it and the Grizzlies do force it," added Barkley. "They take a lot of terrible shots."

Houston's other talented rookie, Cuttino Mobley, collected 10 points, including a three-pointer midway through the second quarter that sparked a 12-4 run. Price scored five points during the spurt and Pippen capped it with a dunk that gave the Rockets a 48-32 cushion with 4:08 left.

Anthony Miller's 16-foot jumper at the buzzer gave Houston a commanding 57-39 lead at the half.

Hakeem Olajuwon grabbed 10 rebounds to go with eight points for the Rockets, who held a 43-38 advantage on the boards and scored 20 points off 23 Vancouver turnovers.

Sam Mack scored 21 points and rookie Mike Bibby added 16 for the Grizzlies, who lost starting guard Doug West to a sprained left toe in the first quarter. X-rays were negative and he is listed as day-to-day.

Houston converted 8-of-15 3-pointers while limiting the Grizzlies to a 3-of-13 performance from long range.

Dickerson drained consecutive 3-pointers to give the Rockets their biggest lead, 70-46, with 7:44 left in the third quarter.

"He just made some shots," said Mack. "He was so hot tonight. What was he, 5-of-6 from three-point land? He was on fire. He was blistering. We need to take a jalapeno out of his (butt)."

After Mack's slam pulled Vancouver within 98-83 with 3:16 to go, Barkley was called for traveling and immediately launched into a tirade directed at Foster. Mack converted the technical free throw and then buried a 15-footer to cut the deficit to 12 with 2:22 left.

Price responded by sinking an 18-foot jumper to stretch the lead to 100-86 with 1:30 to play. The Grizzlies have allowed each of their last five opponents to break the 100-point mark.

"They were really knocking down the shots," said Abdur-Rahim. "It was extremely tough. If this team is not in turmoil, we need to be."
