Dunleavy Loses 10 Pounds With Flu, Minutes Reduced

Dec 29, 2004 7:11 AM

Mike Dunleavy, suffering from a bad case of the flu, has lost 10 pounds.  The former Duke forward will continue to start despite the sickness.

"He's been sapped pretty good," Montgomery said. "I've encouraged him to sit up and take nourishment, and I think he's trying."

Mickael Pietrus and Calbert Cheaney have been seeing more minutes while Dunleavy battles through his illness.  Pietrus will threaten to take more of Dunleavy's minutes, as he scored a career-high 24 points against Denver on Monday night, in a win that sealed coach Jeff Bzdelik's fate.

Dec 27, 2004 2:12 AM

Jason Richardson's lopsided scoring performance led the Warriors back to defeat the Kings for the first time at Arco Arena in 11 attempts.  Richardson scored all of his 26 points in the second half.

"I was aware of that (losing streak), but we haven't won in a lot of places," Richardson said. "It's huge for us. Sacramento has had our number the last couple of years."

The Warriors trailed the Kings by 10 at the half and outscored them by 13 in the 3rd frame.

"The difference in the whole game was Jason Richardson; it's that simple," said Webber, who led the Kings with 28 points.

Jamison, Arenas And Hughes Return To Oakland

Dec 20, 2004 4:48 AM

Gilbert Arenas, Larry Hughes and Antawn Jamison played together with the Golden State Warriors in the 2001-02 season and now as members of the Washington Wizards, they will return to Oakland with an impressive 13-9 record.

"It doesn't really matter to me now; it's just a game that we want to win," said Hughes, who signed with the Wizards as a free agent in August 2002. "We went out there and lost, and the year before that we lost, too. And if you look at it, everything out there has changed."

"I went there twice last year," said Jamison, who played sparingly in those appearances. "There was all the hoopla for me. But now it's really nothing. The first time you go back it's like, 'Wow, this is where I spent a couple of years of my career.' But now it's out the window. There are no feelings at all about it."

"We feel good with what we're doing," Hughes said. "When we were there that organization was a lot like the Wizards. We were known for losing games and not knowing how to finish games. But I think this organization has turned it around and it's completely different from top to bottom in terms of changing the attitude. I'm glad I'm here."

The Hornets were led by Dan Dickau, who scored a career-high 25 points.

Troy Murphy had 25 and 12 for the Warriors in a losing effort.
