Game Story

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Cliff Robinson showed the Charlotte Bobcats the difference that experience makes in the NBA. Robinson scored 14 of his season-high 21 points in the second half and led four players in double figures to help the Golden State Warriors to a 99-87 victory over the Bobcats. A 16-year veteran, Robinson scored five crucial points in a 9-1 spurt down the stretch after the Bobcats cut the deficit to 88-86. Charlotte did not make a basket in the final four minutes. "I curse myself again," Charlotte coach Bernie Bickerstaff said. "Every time I talk about what we haven't done on the trip, it goes the opposite way. We had 11 turnovers the first half and we ended up with 26. When we needed to be good, we were bad. It's that simple." Trailing, 58-48, early in the third quarter, the Warriors went on a 21-6 run fueled by nine points from Troy Murphy to open a 69-64 lead. "Today was a game unlike we've had this year where we came out and played well in the second half," Murphy said. "There are really no easy wins in this league. We can't overlook anybody. We have to come out and play hard every night." Jason Richardson scored 24 points, Speedy Claxton added 18 and Mike Dunleavy Jr. grabbed a season-high 15 rebounds for the Warriors, who are averaging 105 points in their last five games. Golden State swept the season series from Charlotte. "We'll take a win any way we can," Richardson said. "If it's ugly or it's against a team that's struggling, we still go out there and take the win." "We've been playing pretty good offensively the last couple of weeks," Claxton said. "Right now, we've got to let our defense catch up. Once we get that, we'll be in pretty good shape." Dunleavy is splitting time at point guard with Speedy Claxton because Derek Fisher went on the injured list with a sprained right knee. "I look forward to the next few games," Dunleavy said. "Even though he's out, that's not good. But I think I can bring something to the team at that position that's unique and I look to build on it. Rookie Emeka Okafor collected his 10th consecutive double-double - the league's longest current streak - with 21 points and 13 rebounds and Jason Kapono scored 13 points for Charlotte, which fell to 0-10 on the road. "We're definitely getting teams respect, Okafor said. "The games are a lot closer than people would anticipate. It's great entertainment, it's not like ho-hum...trying to stay awake. We give people a run for their money. So the only thing we can continue to do is play hard."
