February 25, 1992|From Associated Press

The Golden State Warriors won their eighth consecutive game Monday night, defeating the Dallas Mavericks, 138-131, at Dallas.

It's the Warriors' longest winning streak since January of 1989.

Chris Mullin led with Warriors with 29 points, and Tim Hardaway added 27, including five of seven from three-point range.

Dallas was led by rookie Mike Iuzzolino, who had personal-best 22 points.

Derek Harper hit a three-pointer with 8.7 seconds left to reduce the Warriors' lead to 135-130, but Dallas came no closer.

Seattle 106, Minnesota 91--Eddie Johnson had his second big game in a row, scoring 26 points and sparking a 12-0 run by the SuperSonics in the third quarter at Minneapolis.

Johnson scored 29 points in a 113-104 victory over Portland on Saturday.

Ricky Pierce's three-point play broke a 58-58 tie midway through the quarter, and Johnson followed with seven of the SuperSonics' next nine points. Minnesota made only six of 20 shots in the quarter.

Rookie Luc Longley scored a personal-best 19 for Minnesota.

After a slow 2-6 start under new Coach George Karl, hired Jan. 23, the SuperSonics' only defeat in their last nine games was a 140-122 loss at Golden State. At 30-25, the team is five games over .500 for the first time this season.

Portland 110, Utah 107--Clyde Drexler scored 24 points, including a crucial rebound of his own miss with 35 seconds to play, as the Trail Blazers won at Portland to end the Jazz's six-game winning streak.

Karl Malone scored 30 points for the Jazz, which plays the Clippers at the Sports Arena tonight.

Phoenix 104, New York 95--Tom Chambers scored 29 points, Kevin Johnson had 25 and Jeff Hornacek 22 to offset Patrick Ewing's 37 points and 10 rebounds at Phoenix.

The Knicks' next game is against the Lakers Wednesday night at the Forum.

Atlanta 117, Denver 95--Kevin Willis had 21 points and 12 rebounds before sitting out the fourth quarter as the Hawks built an early 20-point lead and coasted to a victory at Atlanta.

Willis' double-double was his 15th in a row. The victory put the Hawks (28-27) over .500 for the first time since Jan. 2.

Philadelphia 108, Sacramento 96--Armon Gilliam scored 29 points, and Hersey Hawkins added 27 as the 76ers built a 12-point lead in the final quarter and held off the road-weary Kings at Philadelphia.
