Warriors check slide vs Knicks.
NEW YORK (AP) – Stephen Curry broke out of a shooting slump with 31 points and moved into the top 10 on the NBA’s career 3-point list as the Golden State Warriors recovered from consecutive losses to beat the New York Knicks 112-105 on Sunday.
Klay Thompson added 29 points to help the Warriors end their first regular-season losing streak in nearly two years.
The Splash Brothers had dried up as Golden State dropped two in a row following Kevin Durant’s knee injury, but they regained their touch Sunday. Curry hit five 3-pointers, passing Chauncey Billups for 10th place, and added eight rebounds and six assists.
Thompson had a 3-pointer and two other baskets during a late surge that allowed Golden State to pull away after leading by one midway through the fourth quarter.
Derrick Rose scored 28 points, and Kristaps Porzingis had 24 points and 15 rebounds for the Knicks.
SUNS 109, CELTICS 106
PHOENIX – Rookie Tyler Ulis threw in a 3-pointer at the buzzer after a Boston turnover and the Phoenix Suns came away with a wild victory.
The Suns’ Eric Bledsoe tied it at 106 with a reverse layup with four seconds to play.
Isaiah Thomas, who scored 35 points but missed a free throw with 11.9 seconds left, took the inbounds pass and the Suns’ Marquese Chriss knocked the ball away. Ulis, listed at 5-foot-10 but probably not that tall, grabbed it and tossed it up as the buzzer sounded.
JAZZ 110, KINGS 109, OT
SACRAMENTO, California – Rudy Gobert tipped in George Hill’s missed jumper as time expired in overtime on a play that was initially ruled goaltending, lifting the Utah Jazz to a thrilling victory over Sacramento.
MAVERICKS 104, THUNDER 89
DALLAS – Seth Curry scored 22 points and Dirk Nowitzki had 18 points and 12 rebounds as the Dallas Mavericks beat the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Russell Westbrook had 29 for the Thunder after scoring more than 40 in each of his last four games. He had six rebounds and five assists, but the Mavericks frustrated him into both a technical foul and a flagrant-one foul. Both came in the midst of a 21-4 third-quarter run that allowed Dallas to blow the game open.
Nowitzki tied his season high for rebounds and is 20 points away from becoming the sixth player to score 30,000.
PACERS 97, HAWKS 96
ATLANTA – Glenn Robinson III hit a 3-pointer with 0.6 seconds left and Paul George scored 34 points as Indiana rallied to beat Atlanta.
WIZARDS 115, MAGIC 114
WASHINGTON – Bojan Bogdanovic scored 15 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter and made a career-high eight 3-pointers as the Washington Wizards came back from 17 down to beat Orlando.
PELICANS 105, LAKERS 97
DeMarcus Cousins had 26 points and 15 rebounds as the New Orleans Pelicans won for the first time with him in the lineup, beating the spiraling Los Angeles Lakers whose fourth-quarter rally fell short.
Nick Young led the Lakers with 19 points. They fell to 0-7 since the All-Star break.
