Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- The Golden State Warriors appear to be following rookie Mickael Pietrus' example on defense. Pietrus scored a season-high 20 points as the Warriors shut down Yao Ming and ended a 15-game home losing streak to the Houston Rockets with a 90-84 victory. "I feel better," said Pietrus, who was 7-of-8 from the field. "My teammates told me just to have fun, and tonight I had fun. The most important thing is not to score 20-25 or 30. Most important for us is to get victories and play hard game by game." In an interview with a French sports newspaper earlier this week, Pietrus ripped his teammates for their selfishness and lack of defensive intensity. He later apologized, and the Warriors ended a nine-game losing streak by holding San Antonio to 80 points. Led by Pietrus' solid defense on NBA scoring leader Tracy McGrady, Golden State rolled to a 25-point win over Orlando on Wednesday. The Warriors have won three straight games, limiting their opponents to less than 90 points. "I think the team did a great job tonight and we have three straight (wins) and we've got to keep going," Pietrus said. While Pietrus shined on offense, Erick Dampier and Adonal Foyle teamed up to hold Yao to 10 points on 4-of-15 shooting. "It felt really strange today," Yao said through an interpreter. "From the beginning, I couldn't put the ball into the basket and it just wasn't because of their defense, I think it was partially my own problem." "I know if you take away his drives to the right, he's going to try to spin back to the left and shoot a jumper," Dampier said. "I just tried to make him go to the jump shot every time." Pietrus primarily guarded All-Star guard Steve Francis and held him to nine points before Francis scored 10 in the final 39 seconds. "Steve Francis is a very difficult player to defend," Pietrus added. "I just wanted to do my best tonight." Francis was not impressed with the rookie. "He was fouling me the whole night, he wasn't guarding me," Francis said. "It was tough, 'cause I didn't know how the referees were going to call it. They were letting them foul me. (They) cross-blocked me all game, so if you're going to let that happen, you're going to get the result of what happened to me tonight." Four Warriors scored in double figures. Troy Murphy scored 16 points off the bench, Erick Dampier had 12 with eight rebounds and veteran Avery Johnson added 11. The Warriors used a 15-2 run to grab a 78-63 with 2:32 remaining and were on pace for the most impressive defensive showing in team history before Francis led a 19-7 spurt to close the deficit to 86-82 with 11 seconds to play. Yao had nine rebounds but was embarrassed by Johnson on a driving layup with 3:50 remaining. Houston called timeout, and Yao sat out the rest of the game. "He just missed shots, that's what it was," Francis said. "He got normal shots that he's been getting. When we got him the ball deep, he missed a lot of shots that he normally hit and when they're going in, it's great. When they're not, it's tough." Golden State clinched its first home win vs. Houston since March 7, 1996 by making four free throws. "They're one of the better teams in the West," Warriors guard Mike Dunleavy, Jr. said. "They're really fighting for the playoffs and so we know that they came out and really gave it a game, and tried to win this thing and we beat them so it's good for our confidence."
