Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Charles Barkley scored 15 of his 24 points in the second half as the Houston Rockets rallied from a 19-point deficit and extended their winning streak to seven games with an 87-86 victory over the Golden State Warriors.

Barkley also grabbed 11 rebounds while Hakeem Olajuwon scored 20 points and Scottie Pippen added 16 and nine assists for the Rockets, who are on their longest winning streak since a nine-game roll from November 18-December 9, 1997.

Houston outscored the Warriors, 35-14, over a 17-minutes span bridging the third and fourth quarters. The Rockets posted their seventh straight win at Golden State and have not lost a road game in the series since March 7, 1996.

"We weren't going to quit," Barkley said. "It was their fault they didn't put us away. When you got a 20-point lead at home, you've got to win the game."

"We just got caught on our heels in the first half and we were embarrassed," Pippen said. "We just had to come out and play the way we were capable of in the second half. It was a real lethargic game on our part in the first half."

Antawn Jamison scored a career-high 23 points and John Starks contributed 12 for Golden State, which has dropped 21 of 24 overall meetings with the Rockets.

"Every game we've played with the exception of two or three, we've had a chance to win," Jamison said. "We're still trying to get the chemistry down."

After a driving layup by Olajuwon put Houston ahead, 25-24, with 9:41 remaining in the second, the Warriors went on a 25-9 run to close out the quarter and bring a 15-point lead into the third. Jamison had 10 points in the burst.

Erick Dampier, who finished with nine points and 11 rebounds, grabbed an offensive board and laid it in to give Golden State its largest lead, 53-34, with 10:13 left in the third.

However, the Rockets scored 20 of the next 24 points to close within three on the second of two free throws by rookie Cuttino Mobley with 3:36 to go in the third.

In the fourth, Houston whittled down the Warriors' five-point lead and tied the game at 65-65 on a hook shot by Olajuwon with 8:30 left. Jamison hit a running jumper to restore Golden State advantage but Othella Harrington converted two free throws.

The Warriors missed two scoring chances on their next possession as the shot clock expired before Olajuson's layup with 7:11 put Houston ahead for good, 69-67.

Golden State came within one point three times but could never re-take the lead. The last time came after Starks hit his third 3-pointer with one second to cut the deficit to 87-86.

Pippen tried to make a pass down the length of the court to Olajuwon but the ball bounced off the center's hand and out of bounds.

After a conference the officials put four-tenths of a second on the clock. Starks, with two defenders on him, managed to throw a long pass to other end but the Warriors were unable to get off a shot.

"Talk about the story of two halves," Rockets coach Rudy Tomjanovich said. "I was really disappointed in our first half. It was a crazy game but it would not have surprised me if something would have happened on the last play, like that old Russian game (Olympic gold medal game of 1972)."

Barkley, Pippen and Olajuwon combined for 23 points in the fourth quarter.

"Those guys didn't panic at all," Jamison said. "They believed they could win this game and in the third and fourth quarter we started to question ourselves."

Michael Dickerson chipped in with 16 points for the Rockets, who shot 44.9 percent (31-for-69) from the field, making 6-of-12 from 3-point range.

Donyell Marshall scored just four points but grabbed 10 rebounds and Terry Cummings came off the bench to collect 11 points and nine boards for Golden State, which held a 54-39 edge in rebounding but shot only 38.6 percent (34-for-88) from the field and 26.7 percent (4-of-15) from 3-point range.

"They did a tremendous job on the boards," Barkley said. "We couldn't let them dominate the boards in the second like they did in the first."
