Warriors get dose of reality

May 14, 2007|From the Associated Press

OAKLAND — The Golden State Warriors' home-court spell is over.

Carlos Boozer had 34 points and 12 rebounds, and Derek Fisher scored 14 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter as the Jazz handed the Warriors their first home loss of the postseason, 115-101, Sunday night to put Utah up 3-1 in their second-round series.

The Jazz can clinch Tuesday night at Salt Lake City.

"That was a big step in the growth process for us as a team," Fisher said.

Al Harrington scored 24 points, but Baron Davis had only 15 points and seven assists for Golden State. Jason Richardson had only seven points on three-for-12 shooting before being ejected with 37 seconds left for a flagrant foul on Mehmet Okur.

Losing for the first time in five home playoff games, the Warriors missed 13 of 34 free throws.

Utah, which went ahead to stay on Fisher's three-point basket with 5:57 left, finished the game on a 22-10 run.
