Stephen Curry scores 24 in return, Warriors hold off Raptors

Los Angeles had lost 14 straight overall against the Mavericks.

Kevin Durant hit a 19-foot jumper with 21.3 seconds remaining Saturday night, allowing the Golden State Warriors to hold off the Toronto Raptors 127-125 after almost blowing all of a 27-point halftime lead in Toronto.

The Warriors would hang on, 127-125, as fans rose to their feet in a sign of appreciation for how the Raptors competed in the second half, especially in the fourth quarter.

While the Warriors sit atop the Western Conference standings, the Raptors are only three games behind the Celtics for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.

Curry, who has missed the past two games, is officially listed as probable on the team injury report.

DeRozan passed Carter with his 92nd career game of 30 points or more.

DeMar DeRozan scored 42 points for the Raptors, who made it a tight game after the Warriors rang up 81 points on 71.1 percent shooting in the first half.

John Wall scored 17 of his 23 points in the second half and overtime and added 16 assists as Washington beat visiting Brooklyn after giving back a 23-point lead.

Toronto outscored the Warriors 35-27 in the third to cut their lead to 108-89 heading into the fourth.

Even when a team thinks it has stopped Golden State, there's too much talent, too much ball movement, too many run outs to ever feel comfortable.

But it wasn't enough, as Klay Thompson (26 points), Kevin Durant (25 points) and Curry (24 points) all had big nights for Golden State.

Golden State is on the second night of a back-to-back to begin a hard five-game road trip.

Golden State took control of the second early, going on a 10-2 run to take a 53-37 lead 2:37 into the quarter.

Reigning MVP Russell Westbrook did what he does best, almost registering a triple double with 27 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists all while shooting less-than-stellar from the floor as he went 10-of-27 from the field in the Oklahoma City Thunder's 101-91 victory over the Charlotte Hornets.
