Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Nick Van Exel had one of his patented fourth-quarter outbursts against his former club. Then he had another after the game. Van Exel scored 13 of his 20 points in the final period - draining three 3-pointers - as the Portland Trail Blazers topped the Golden State Warriors, 78-75, in the season opener for both teams. After spending one season with the Warriors, Van Exel was traded to the Trail Blazers on July 20 for Dale Davis and Dan Dickau. He came off the bench behind Damon Stoudamire. "Last year I came back (from injury) too early just to try to play for this franchise and the (bleeping fans) booed me so I was like, '(Bleep) 'em,'" Van Exel said. "Basically what I tried to do was stick it to them because I came back early just to try to be the basketball player I know I can be and they booed me, so (bleep) 'em." Golden State finished the third quarter on an 8-0 run to take its biggest lead at 59-53. Portland made its first eight shots in the final period, capped by Van Exel's 3-pointer that opened a 74-66 advantage with 5:37 to go. The crowd at The Arena in Oakland booed every time Van Exel touched the ball, but Van Exel turned the crowd's negative energy in his favor. "With this team we've got a lot of options," Van Exel said. "Shareef had the hot hand the first half, I got going a little bit in the second half and that's the type of coach (Maurice Cheeks) is, he likes to go with the hot hand. It was my night tonight. I was really motivated because of the boos." The Warriors held the Trail Blazers to just 1-of-6 shooting the rest of the way and twice had opportunities to either tie or take the lead in the waning seconds. But Mike Dunleavy Jr. missed two 3-pointers. With Portland up two points, Dunleavy - who scored 17 points - fired an airball on a wide open shot with six seconds left. Portland's Zach Randolph made only 1-of-2 free throws, but the third-year forward could not level the score as time expired. "It was very tough," said Warriors guard Jason Richardson who watched the final attempt from the bench. "We really work hard and to sit on the bench is hard, especially with those types of games you want to hit the big shot but it was a good look, it was just off but you can't complain about it, you missed it or not, airball or not it was a good shot. He was open, he had to take it." Richardson finished with just 11 points, on 4-of-17 shooting, and four turnovers in his first game since signing a six-year, $70 million contract extention Monday. The loss spoiled the NBA coaching debut of Golden State's Mike Montgomery, who previously spent 18 seasons guiding Stanford. "These are games you have to win," Montgomery said. "We just have to keep working. It was a little disappointing because this was a game I thought we had, but we'll play better. We have to shoot and rebound better and we'll do that." Shareef Abdur-Rahim finished with 18 points, who shot 7-of-9 in the first half while the rest of the team shot 29 percent (9-of-31). "There are not a lot of small forwards or power forwards who can guard me," Abdur-Rahim said. "We should not have a problem scoring, that should not be a problem. I didn't play as much in the second half as I did in the first half but the most important thing is that we won the game, we got off to a good start. I think it's important to win this game, especially on the road, and I'm happy with that."
