Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Donyell Marshall scored 23 points and grabbed 21 rebounds to lead the Golden State Warriors to an 80-75 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

Larry Hughes, acquired two weeks ago from Philadelphia in a three-way trade, also had 23 points and tied a career-high with 10 rebounds for the Warriors, who snapped a four-game home losing streak against Atlanta.

Golden State has won a season-high three in a row at home but improved to just 10-18 at the Arena in Oakland, and 3-32 when failing to reach the 100-point plateau.

Isaiah Rider had 24 points and nine rebounds, Dikembe Mutombo collected 13 and 22, and Jimmy Jackson chipped in 21 points for the Hawks, who completed their season-high six-game road trip just 2-4. They dropped to 7-21 on the road overall.

"It's tough to win on the road," Atlanta coach Lenny Wilkens said. "We played well against Utah, we played well against Sacramento and beat them and we beat Seattle. Then it was like all of a sudden, I don't know what happened but we lost it. Tonight we got up and all of a sudden we didn't play well."

Atlanta, in 11th place in the Eastern Conference, slipped 4 1/2 games behind the Milwaukee Bucks for the final playoff berth.

"Defensively, we just didn't do a great job," Motombo said. "We let them pass the ball where they wanted to. We just didn't go out there properly. We missed a lot of easy baskets. We didn't try to go to the basket hard. We tried to rely too much on our shooting game from the outside and we didn't get that much help."

After Jackson's running jumper with 9:45 left in the fourth quarter gave the Hawks a 65-62 lead, Golden State went on a 15-3 run. Marshall's jump shot gave the Warriors their first lead in the game, 66-65, with 8:44 left and Hughes contributed six points in the spurt.

"We used our speed and we changed the game up on them," said Hughes, who played career-high 46 minutes. "By the time they got the time to adjust, we were making stops, playing off adrenaline, trying to win the game."

Atlanta started the contest with a 13-2 run and took a 14-point advantage on Jackson's two free throws with 7:55 left in the second.

"I think it was a mistake made on our part. We should have gone and played all the way to the end," Motombo said. "Don't start celebrating early. I think sometimes you can get a mental collapse when you're playing a team that isn't going anywhere. When you take them for granted, you just fall apart yourself."

The Warriors were down by 12 points with 59.6 seconds remaining in the second but outscored the Hawks, 29-18, till the end of the quarter and for most of the third to close within 59-58 as Hughes hit a 3-pointer with 1:34 left in the quarter.

Jason Caffey collected 15 points and six rebounds and Vonteego Cummings, who will celebrate only his sixth birthday on February 29, chipped in with 10 points for Golden State, who outscored Atlanta, 20-11, on second-chance points and, 20-6, on the fast break.

The Warriors, who shot 37.1 percent (33-for-89) from the field, tied a season-low with nine turnovers.

"I'm sure a lot of people feel like we're like asprin around the league," Marshall said. "They've got headaches, losing streaks, and they're playing Golden State. We've got to go ahead and just play hard. We've surprised a lot of people. People realize we've had a lot of injuries but what they don't realize is that we're starting to come back from that. We might not have a shot at the playoffs but our goal is to progress as the year goes on."

Marshall, who had a career-high 23 rebounds in Saturday's loss at Indiana, became the first Warriors player since Larry Smith in 1981 to grab 20-plus rebounds in back-to-back games. And he is only the fourth player this season to pull down 20 or more boards in at least three games.

"Marshall played some terrific basketball," Golden State coach Garry St. Jean said. "Obviously he's very long and he's blessed with timing on the glass. Rebounding takes a lot of effort and a lot of work. He's done a terrific job for us. He made some big plays. He's got savvy out there. I've seen him make a substantial jump in his game."

LaPhonso Eillis was the leading scorer off the bench with seven points for the Hawks, who shot only 34.5 percent (29-for-84), including 3-of-11 from 3-point range.

"The shooting becomes a struggle when you don't move the ball," Wilkens said. "When you're being double teamed, the ball has got to move so that you can catch the defense and get a wide open shot. When you don't do that, you're not going to shoot a high percentage. Then when you miss as many layups as we did, you're not going to shoot a high percentage."

Golden State forward Billy Owens did not play in the second half due to a strained right knee.
