for the Bullets while Phil Che-
nier scored 16. Chenier had
been the Bullets leading scorer
through the first two games with
50 points, but he didn't get a
field goal until the opening min-
ute of the third quarter.
Derrek Dickey hit his first
six field goal attempts for the
Warriors and finished with 14
points while George Johnson
contributed 10, including eight
in the second quarter. Johnson
also grabbed seven rebounds in
the second period, six off the
offensive boards.
The Warriors took the lead
for good in the third quarter
63-56, with nine straight points,
five by Barry. By late in the
fourth quarter they had bolted
to 14.
Barry's 11 consecutive point
splurge in the first period came
in a 3:24 span.
When the6Warriors had their
lead to 22-16, Porter flipped in
seven consecutive points, slic-
ing Golden State's edge to 26-21
after the first period.
The Bullets never led until
Porter tossed in a jump shot at
1:55 of the second period for a
29-28 margin. There were five
ties and seven lead changes be-
fore the Warriors forged ahead

to stay in the first half 44-43 on
a jumper by Barry.
