(Sports Network) – The Warriors dropped a 104-102 decision to the Kobe-less
Los Angeles Lakers at The Arena in Oakland on Saturday.
Derek Fisher had a career-high 29 points against his former club, but it
wasn’t enough as the Warriors dropped their ninth straight. Speedy Claxton
added 15 points and 10 assists, but his three-point attempt as time expired
bounced off the back rim.
Troy Murphy recorded 14 points and 19 rebounds and Mike Dunleavy had 21 points
for Golden State, which has lost four straight to the Lakers.
Los Angeles trailed 92-83 after Fisher drained a jumper with 8:21 remaining.
However, the club responded with a 16-4 burst to take the lead. Chris Mihm
started the run with four straight points and Tierre Brown’s driving layup
with 2:12 left gave the Lakers a 99-96 cushion.
Dunleavy answered with a three-pointer to tie the contest with 1:58 on the
clock and the two teams would go back and forth until the final seconds.
Just prior to Odom’s winning basket, Golden State’s Adonal Foyle was called
for an offensive foul after grabbing a rebound and going back up against Odom.
Odom then took an inbounds pass from Caron Butler and dribbled at half court
until he went to the rim with veteran Cliff Robinson guarding him. Odom beat
him off the dribble and laid the ball off the glass for the winner.
Golden State hit 43 percent from the field, including 12-of-31 from long
