OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 29 (Ticker) --
Mike Dunleavy Jr. and Jason
Richardson did just enough to offset the Toronto Raptors' bench.
NBA TV highlights from |
Dunleavy scored a season-high 29 points and Richardson added a
season-best 35 as the Golden State Warriors extended their
winning streak to four games with a 111-105 victory over the
Jalen Rose scored 23 points off the bench and fellow reserve
Donyell Marshall had 13 and 12 rebounds as Toronto held a 48-2
advantage off the bench but still managed to lose its
franchise-record 10th straight road game.
The Raptors made just 24 percent (4-of-17) of their 3-pointers
through three quarters, but Rose and Marshall combined to hit
Toronto's first three the final period and Morris Peterson added
a fourth to give the Raptors a 96-91 edge with 5:39 left.
Richardson made a layup before Dunleavy hit a 3-pointer to even
the score 40 seconds later. The teams traded the lead until
Dunleavy took the game over, banking in a runner to make it
105-103 with 37 seconds remaining and getting a piece of
Peterson's shot on the other end, forcing Toronto to foul.
Richardson and Derek Fisher combined to hit six free throws down
the stretch to seal the victory.
