KLAY Thompson drilled a clutch 3-pointer with 12.5 seconds remaining and combined with Stephen Curry to score Golden State’s final 17 points on Saturday night, allowing the Warriors to outlast the visiting Brooklyn Nets 110-106 in San Francisco.
Able to play because the game was on the road, Kyrie Irving paced the Nets with 32 points. James Harden (sore right hand) joined Kevin Durant (sprained left knee) on the sidelines.
After Irving and Patty Mills hit two free throws apiece to get Brooklyn within 104-103 with 30.8 seconds to go, Thompson took a Curry pass and drilled just his second 3-pointer of the night to make it a four-point game.
Irving countered immediately with a 3-pointer of his own, his third of the night, to close the gap to 107-106, before Curry hit one free throw and Thompson two in the final 9.0 seconds to ice the win. — Reuters
