    Golden State snaps three-game skid

    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Damon Stoudamire gave a surprised shrug when he learned he had just set the NBA record for 3-point attempts while racking up his sixth career triple-double.

    Even for a soon-to-be free agent, such numbers don't mean much when a team has been beaten and battered as much as Stoudamire's Trail Blazers.

    Mike Dunleavy scored 20 points, Baron Davis added 19 and the Golden State Warriors snapped a three-game losing streak with a 108-88 victory over Portland on Friday night as the teams also set the league record with 69 combined 3-point attempts.

    Stoudamire took 21 3-pointers, breaking the record with 22.9 seconds left. Playing all 48 minutes, Stoudamire had 18 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists for his second triple-double against Golden State in 10 days.

    But the Blazers had just eight players in uniform and ran out of energy in the fourth quarter of yet another loss. Stoudamire, who has six career triple-doubles, made just five of his 3s, which left him less than enthusiastic about the feat.

    He broke the record set by Denver's Michael Adams in 1991 and matched by Dallas' George McCloud in 1996, but his thoughts were on the short plane ride back to Portland and some much-needed rest.

    "That wasn't nothing but the product of having eight guys," Stoudamire said. "You're on the floor long enough, and that's just going to start bouncing your way."

    Both teams spent much of the night on the perimeter, but Davis and his teammates got inside just enough for a win. Their combined 3-point attempts surpassed the 67 launched by the Warriors and Phoenix on April 8.

    The teams made 23, with Richie Frahm hitting four for the Blazers and Dunleavy making four for the Warriors.

    "We thought we'd shoot some 3s," Golden State coach Mike Montgomery said. "We did a better job defending in the second half ... or their arms got tired."

    Davis also had 11 assists, and Troy Murphy added 18 points and 12 rebounds as the Warriors improved to 16-10 since Davis' arrival in a trade.

    With just three games left, Portland dropped to 3-21 under interim coach Kevin Pritchard -- and their season of turmoil got even worse.

    Before the game, Ruben Patterson reiterated his trade request, and Darius Miles expressed doubt whether he'll play again this season -- either because of a neck injury or his ongoing problems with Blazers management.

    Patterson, who declared himself out for the season with a shoulder injury after Thursday's loss to Dallas, played 40 minutes against the Warriors, scoring 17 points after a meeting with Pritchard. If he hadn't played, Portland wouldn't have had enough players in uniform to meet the NBA's minimum requirement.

    "I just decided I was going to finish the season," Patterson said. "I was a little frustrated (Thursday) night with a lot of things. We get paid a lot of money, man. I'm just going to go ahead and finish it out, and whatever happens in the summer, happens."

    Miles and rookie Sebastian Telfair, who has sore ankles, didn't dress for the game, while injured veterans Derek Anderson and Theo Ratliff didn't travel.

    While the Blazers are in a freefall, the Warriors are engendering optimism for next season with their impressive spring run. With two home games against fellow non-playoff teams remaining, Golden State has won nine of 12 -- harming its draft position, but showing off a talented core of players almost entirely signed beyond next season.

    "I've been here when my team has been decimated by injuries and everybody took pleasure in whooping us," said center Adonal Foyle, who had eight points and nine rebounds. "So I am definitely going to play anybody that is in that place and enjoy doing it."

    Game notes


    Stoudamire had 13 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in the Blazers' 104-102 home loss to the Warriors on April 6, but he missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer. ... Rookie Andris Biedrins had eight points and a career-high 11 rebounds before fouling out for Golden State. ... Both teams made more than 62 percent of their shots in the first quarter. ... Anderson, who dressed for Thursday's loss to Dallas but didn't play, probably is out for the season with a sore back. He has missed 11 straight games. Ratliff has a sore right shoulder.
