Game Story

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- The Charlotte Hornets knew their six-game road trip against Western Conference teams was going to be tough, but they probably did not think it would get this bad.

Michael Dickerson scored 22 points and Mike Bibby added 21 as the Vancouver Grizzlies snapped a five-game losing streak and defeated the Hornets for the first time with a 99-89 triumph.

Dickerson ignited a franchise-record 19-0 run with a 3-pointer that gave the Grizzlies the lead for good, 10-9, with 8:35 remaining in the first quarter. Dickerson scored seven points and Bibby added five in the burst that Othella Harrington capped with a dunk for a 26-9 lead with 2:32 remaining.

"They're a good team. It's just tonight, everyone was in sync," Dickerson said. "Everyone was playing together and getting open shots. This win is a stepping stone for good things in the future."

Shareef Abdur-Rahim recorded 19 points and 10 rebounds for Vancouver, which shot 51 percent (36-of-70) and improved to 1-8 all-time against Charlotte. The Grizzles, who entered the NBA in 1995, have defeated every team in the league except Cleveland and Indiana.

"We have lost some games we shouldn't have," Abdur-Rahim said. "We controlled this game from start to finish."

Damon Jones made just his second start of the season for the Grizzlies and matched his career high with 18 points, hitting 6-of-12 shots from the floor. With Jones in the backcourt, Dickerson moved to forward, giving Vancouver a smaller but quicker lineup.

"We didn't have problems with that," said Charlotte point guard David Wesley, who scored 13 points. "We had problems with mental preparation for this game. Offensively and defensively, we weren't very good."

"That lineup got off to a good start," Vancouver coach Sidney Lowe said. "Each guy did something. The key was we were able to run the floor and get some easy baskets. We had guys that made some shots. This is a lineup that we can match up with the quickness. We knew we would have problems on the boards (however)."

Charlotte shot a miserable 35 percent (8-of-23) in the first quarter and never recovered en route to its fourth straight loss.

"Well, we shot jumpers and we missed them," Hornets coach Paul Silas said. "In the shootaround, we emphasized that they didn't have shot-blockers and to take the ball to the hoop. We had no energy at all. There was no excuse for that, we had time off."

The Hornets were coming off their worst loss of the season, an 89-67 defeat at Portland on Monday. They face the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday before completing the trip two nights later against the Denver Nuggets.

Derrick Coleman scored all 18 of his points in the fourth quarter and Charlotte closed to 90-84 on his 3-pointer with 1:34 to go. Harrington, who had 15 points and 13 boards, answered with a free throw 20 seconds later.

Vancouver grabbed the rebound after Harrington missed the second shot and Abdur-Rahim sank a nine-footer for a 93-84 advantage with 53 seconds left.

"(The) fourth quarter didn't matter. We didn't get what we came for, the `W,'" Coleman said.

Baron Davis had 17 points, nine rebounds and eight assists for the Hornets, who are one game ahead of the Milwaukee Bucks for the lead in the Central Division. Jamal Mashburn had 17 points and seven boards, but shot just 8-of-22, missing all four of his attempts in the final quarter.

Eldridge Recasner made a 19-footer for his only points, capping a 7-0 burst and pulling the Hornets within 32-27 with 8:18 left in the second period. Vancouver used an 8-0 burst to stretch the lead to 42-29 when Abdur-Rahim made a 20-footer 4:21 before halftime.

The Grizzlies took a 53-38 lead into the break. They built the margin as big as 79-57 when Harrington capped a 13-2 run with a jumper with 76 seconds left in the third.
