OAKLAND, Calif., Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Rookie Gordan Giricek scored 20 of his 22 points in the second half Monday night as Memphis edged Golden State, 110-108.

The point total for Giricek included a layup with one second left that gave the Grizzlies the win, snapping a five-game road skid.

Paul Gasol added 23 points, but missed the second of two free throws that would have given Memphis a 109-106 lead. The rebound was tipped to Golden State's Antawn Jamison, whose layup forged a 108-108 deadlock with four seconds to play.

After a Grizzlies' timeout, Bob Sura slipped while guarding Giricek, allowing the native of Croatia to convert the winning basket.

Lorenzen Wright contributed 16 points and 15 rebounds, and Gasol pulled down 12 boards as Memphis, which improved to 1-3 on a season-high six-game road trip. The Grizzlies are just 2-15 away from home.

Gilbert Arenas scored a season-high 31 points, Jamison chipped in with 20, and Troy Murphy added 16 and a career-high 20 rebounds, but the Warriors had a three-game home winning streak stopped.
