Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Forget San Diego or Los Angeles. The Clippers should move to Oakland.

Rookie Lamar Odom scored 14 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter as the Clippers pulled away late for their first victory in 20 road games and second in as many tries against the Golden State Warriors this season, 112-103.

Odom spearheaded a dazzling 13-of-19 shooting performance over the final 12 minutes as the Clippers posted their first win away from the Staples Center since a 103-99 triumph against the Warriors here on December 22.

"I'm not sure what it is about Golden State," Clippers coach Jim Todd said. "I know I've been here a couple of times and been lucky enough to come away with a few wins. We like the weather here.

"We put it together tonight and came up with a `W.' A win was bound to happen. We've been struggling coming out in the second half of games. But tonight it worked out for us. We shot better than we normally do. Sometimes if you keep firing them up there, eventually they are going to go in. A win for us anywhere is good."

Odom had a stellar game with 14 rebounds, seven assists and just one turnover in 45 minutes. Los Angeles has won five straight visits to the Oakland Coliseum and improved to just 4-29 away from home this season.

"We haven't won a game in a long time, a really long time," Odom said. "I can't even remember the last time we won. We really came in here tonight focused on what we needed to do to win. We executed in the fourth quarter and took good shots and that's the reason why we won tonight. When you execute your plays and get what you want, things go a lot better."

Having already been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, the Clippers snapped a five-game skid and drew the hapless Warriors one step closer to postseason extinction. Golden State will be knocked out with another loss or another win by the Sacramento Kings.

"Nobody likes to be laughed at," Odom said. "We don't really read the papers and read the negative comments. We're just trying to go out, play and get wins as the youngest team in the NBA. All we can do is get better."

Larry Hughes continued his torrid scoring since coming to the Warriors from Philadelphia in a three-way deal that sent John Starks to Chicago. He had 30 points on 11-of-25 shooting and matched a career-high with 10 rebounds but could not prevent Golden State's sixth straight loss.

"(Odom) got on a roll," Hughes said. "Once you get it going, your free throws and jump shots start falling. He had it going. How can we underestimate (the Clippers)? We're in the same boat. We didn't come out with that edge."

"I'm choosing my word carefully, because I'm not happy. That's the lowpoint since I've been down on the bench, without a doubt," Golden State coach Garry St. Jean said. "Their big team beat our big team and their small team beat our small team. They outhustled us, they made a ton of shots and we deserve what we got."

Eric Piatkowski scored 20 points off the bench for the Clippers, who outscored the Warriors, 36-25, in the fourth quarter after entering the period with a two-point deficit.

"Most of the times when we come to Oakland, I've broken out of a shooting slump," Piatkowski said. "So I think they need to add it into the schedule more often."

Golden State entered the contest with a perfect 11-0 mark when leading after three quarters but made just 10-of-24 shots in crunch time.

"We stunk the place up tonight," said Warriors forward Jason Caffey, who had just five points on 2-of-8 shooting. "I think I was the most foul odor out there. It shouldn't be disbelief now. They kicked our (butts), it's a terrible night. We didn't get the job done offensively or defensively. I felt like it was the worst game I've ever played since I've been playing basketball."

The battle between two of the league's worst teams was not without excitement, featuring 17 lead changes and 16 ties before Piatkowski made two free throws to put Los Angeles in front for good, 85-83, with 9:10 to play. Pete Chilcutt went 1-of-2 from the line and Odom made two more free throws to stretch the advantage to 94-87 with 6:50 remaining.

Hughes made a 19-footer to cut the deficit to 96-93 but Odom responded with a 26-footer and added two free throws with 3:16 left to make it 103-94.

"I can't say enough about Lamar Odom," Piatkowski said. "The way he played tonight, he was phenomenal."

Maurice Taylor scored 19 points and Tyrone Nesby added 17 for the Clippers, who shot 53 percent (47-of-89) and held a 46-43 advantage on the boards.

Donyell Marshall scored 22 points and Billy Owens and rookie Vonteego Cummings had 11 apiece for the Warriors, who yielded a season-low four points off seven turnovers. Golden State shot 44 percent (38-of-86) and outscored the Clippers, 24-13, at the line.
