Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Mike Bibby scord eight of his 21 points in the fourth quarter as the Vancouver Grizzlies rallied from a 15-point second-half deficit for a 92-87 victory over the Washington Wizards.

The Wizards led 58-43 at the 9:16 mark of the third quarter but completely fell apart in the final period, making just 3-of-21 shots, including only one bucket in the final 10:40. They dropped their 13th straight road game.

Bibby, who also dished seven assists, gave Vancouver its first lead since midway through the second quarter when he recovered a jump ball and streaked down the court for a driving layup with 1:07 to play, making it 85-84.

"I was aggressive tonight," Bibby said. "It had a lot to do with getting set up. I had a lot of good screens set up for me and I got to the basket."

Mitch Richmond hit 1-of-2 free throws to tie it but Dennis Scott, the NBA record-holder for 3-pointers in a season and game, drained one of his patented long-range bombs to put the Grizzlies ahead for good, 88-85, with 41 seconds left.

Richmond scored 18 points for the Wizards, who dropped to 5-22 on the road and 1-6 since Darrell Walker took over the coaching reins from Gar Heard on January 31. Washington's last road win occured on December 21, 97-83 over Detroit.

Vancouver, which defeated the Los Angeles Clippers prior to the All-Star break, has won consecutive home games for the first time since December 19-23, when it followed another victory over the Clippers with a win against Denver.

"That was a real test of our mental will, our will to win," Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins said. "We played that game in the first half like we were rusty. In the second half, we sucked it up. We were mentally tough. It was a game that we just scratched and clawed and toughed out."

The Wizards appeared to have things under control when Tracy Murray nailed consecutive 3-pointers, giving Washington a 78-67 lead with 10:41 to play. But Bibby capped a 9-0 run by scoring the final six points, cutting the deficit to 78-76 with 6:07 remaining.

"We just couldn't make shots and that's what it came down to," Walker said. "We had good looks at the basket, but we just didn't knock them down. They made some hustle plays that we didn't get to, but as far as my teams effort, I have no problem. We just didn't finish the game the way it's supposed to be finished."

Rod Strickland accounted for Washington's last basket of the evening at the 5:44 mark, increasing the lead to 80-76. But Grant Long answered with an 18-foot jumper and Shareef Abdur-Rahim hit a layup to tie the score at 80-80 with 4:13 left.

Michael Dickerson scored 19 points and Abdur-Rahim added 19 and 14 rebounds for Vancouver, which shot 42 percent (33-of-79) from the floor and hit 22-of-27 free throws.

"Look at Michael Dickerson," Walker said. "Everybody talks about Bibby and Shareef, but Dickerson is a player who has the potential to be an All-Star two or three years from now."

"We showed a lot of heart," Abdur-Rahim said. "We fought, everybody played very hard and we stayed with it. We came out in the first quarter and played well, but dug ourselves a hole right before halftime. In the second half, we just fought it collectively and came out with a win."

Bibby scored 11 points in the opening quarter to stake Vancouver to a 26-21 lead. Rookie Richard Hamilton and Aaron Williams came off the bench and scored eight points each, as Washington hit 15-of-23 shot attempts in the period to take a 53-41 halftime advantage.

Strickland finished with 16 points, six assists and six rebounds and Juwan Howard added 14 points and seven rebounds for the Wizards, who shot 40 percent (34-of-85) and made only 16-of-26 from the line.

"We were holding them till the fourth quarter," Howard said. "We didn't score any points and defensively their guys could score when they wanted and you're not going to win a ball game that way. That was the difference right there.

"We understand a team is going to make runs, especially when they're playing at home," Howard added. "They're going to have the momentum in their favor, but we've got to find a way to break that up, prevent it from happening and respond with our defense. Tonight we didn't do that at all."
