AAP logoAAP 7/01/2017

Mike Conley scored 27 points as Memphis rallied back from 24 points down to stun Golden State 128-119 in overtime on Friday night for their second NBA victory over the Warriors this season.

Golden State squandered Stephen Curry's 40 points with an awful fourth quarter and watched Conley knock down a key jumper with 55 seconds left in OT.

Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph each made two quick baskets as the Grizzlies hit their initial five shots in the extra period and snapped Golden State's nine-game home winning streak.

Draymond Green had a three-point play for the Warriors with 2:22 left in overtime, then made a steal on the other end. But he turned the ball over and Troy Daniels immediately hit a corner 3-pointer for Memphis.

Conley tied it on a 17-footer with 7.4 seconds left in regulation, and a heavily guarded Curry missed from way back before the buzzer.

Kevin Durant had 27 points and 13 rebounds but missed five free throws in the Warriors' sixth defeat of the season.

Meanwhile, LeBron James scored 36 points, carrying Cleveland while Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love had slow starts in their return to the lineup, and the Cavaliers beat the Brooklyn Nets 116-108.

Irving added 32 points and Love had 17 points and 13 rebounds, but both shot poorly early as the Nets kept it competitive.

James helped the Cavs open a double-digit lead by halftime and they led comfortably most of the rest of the way in the opener of a six-game trip.

John Wall a season-high 18 assists and scored 18 points to help the Washington Wizards beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 112-105 for their ninth straight home victory.

Minnesota's Andrew Wiggins had 41 points on 16-of-30 shooting after scoring eight points in a loss to Philadelphia on Tuesday night.

Ryan Anderson had 19 points, all in the second half, and Eric Gordon scored 17 off the bench as the Houston Rockets extended their winning streak to seven games with a 100-93 victory over the Orlando Magic.

Elsewhere, Avery Bradley had 26 points and nine rebounds and the Boston Celtics rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 110-106.

Carmelo Anthony had 26 points and 10 assists to help the New York Knicks storm back from an 18-point deficit to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 116-111 and stop their six-game losing streak.

Lou Williams scored 24 points in only the Los Angeles Lakers' fourth victory in 20 games, a 127-100 win over the Miami Heat.

Goran Dragic scored 16 points for Miami before getting ejected along with Los Angeles' Jordan Clarkson after a third-quarter scuffle in which both players appeared to be narrowly stopped from throwing punches.

Austin Rivers scored 24 points and the Los Angeles Clippers won their third straight game by defeating the Sacramento Kings 106-98.
