When: 9:30 p.m. Friday.

Where: The Arena in Oakland, Calif.

Broadcasts:TV - WCGV (Channel 24). Radio - WTMJ-AM (620).

About the Warriors: Their three-game winning streak was broken by Dallas on Wednesday. The Warriors are buried in the Western Conference standings but they are still playing with some emotion, as 12 technical fouls were called in the game and Golden State forward Mike Dunleavy was ejected for the first time in his three-year career for disputing a referee's call. "We allowed the officiating to get to us a little bit and you can't do that," coach Mike Montgomery said.

Player to Watch:
<IMG WIDTH=100 HEIGHT=150 BORDER=0 ALT="MURPHY, TROY" TITLE="MURPHY, TROY" SRC="/img/headshots/100x150/warriors/MURPHY, TROY.jpg">, WARRIORS
He missed the game against Dallas to attend a family funeral and his value to the team at power forward was evident as Dallas exploited his absence. With Dunleavy trying to fill in for Murphy, Dirk Nowitzki of Dallas scored 29 points and Keith Van Horn scored 24. Murphy is averaging 15.5 points and 11 rebounds this season.

The Series:
The Warriors are the only team that the Bucks have yet to play this season. The Bucks have won five of the last six in Oakland.

Numbers Game:
0: Milwaukee's fast break points Wednesday in the loss to the Clippers.

66: The Clippers' first-half points, tying their season high for a half.

6-7: Golden State's home record against teams from the Eastern Conference.

Game Recap:​

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- So what if Derek Fisher isn't starting for the Golden State Warriors any more? The veteran guard is all about finishing -- and one of the NBA's better clutch shooters did it again.

Fisher made a 3-pointer at the overtime buzzer, and the Warriors beat the Milwaukee Bucks 118-117 Friday night for their fourth victory in five games.

Fisher's perfect shot from a spot in front of the Warriors' bench capped the exhilarating final minutes of the fourth quarter and overtime, which featured 12 lead changes and countless clutch baskets.

Fisher hadn't played in overtime until the final possession, when he took a pass from Jason Richardson and buried just his second field goal of the night. The final play was designed for Baron Davis or Richardson, but Fisher has the steadiest left hand on the team -- and a keen sense of the importance of such shots.

"You're not in that position many times," Fisher said. "Even all the highlights you've seen of Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson and guys that hit all types of game-winners -- it's the same ones over and over. It's not 100 of them. You're talking four, five, six times when you're in that position ... and it's just a great feeling."
