NBA Game Summary - Memphis at Golden State



(Friday, March 28th)

Final Score: Golden State 100, Memphis 93

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Stephen Curry scored 33 points to help the Golden State Warriors rally past the Memphis Grizzlies, 100-93, on Friday.

The Warriors trailed 93-86 with 4:00 remaining, but closed the game on a 14-0 run.

With 1:21 to go, Curry shook Grizzlies guard Mike Conley with a crossover before nailing a stepback 3-pointer to give the Warriors a 96-93 lead. After Conley missed a 3 at the other end, Curry knocked down a scooping layup from high off the glass to make it a five-point game.

Klay Thompson sealed the win with a pair of free throws with five seconds remaining.

Thompson finished with 14 points and Marreese Speights scored 15 for the Warriors, winners in four of their last five games.

Golden State (45-27) currently sits in sixth place in the Western Conference standings.

"Understanding that Memphis is right behind us and these are home games that we've got to have to close out the season," Curry said. "All that and especially how the game went, like you said, with four minutes left, down seven, to close it out like we did. Huge win-- sets us up for good momentum going into Sunday and we've just got to come back and be as focused as ever."

The Warriors were without David Lee, who sat out with a right hamstring strain.

Zach Randolph scored 21 points and Conley finished with 20 for the Grizzlies, who had a three-game winning-streak snapped.

"It's really disappointing, to be up (seven) with two or three minutes left in the game and not be able to execute not be able to get stops is real frustrating," said Randolph.

Memphis fell into eighth place in the West and lead Dallas by just one half game for the final playoff spot.

Golden State led 30-27 after 12 minutes and took a 53-52 lead into the break.

Memphis went up 66-58 following a Randolph hook shot with 7:54 left in the third, but a 12-4 Warriors run tied the game. The teams traded baskets until Curry's three-point play put Golden State ahead 77-74 and the Warriors took a 79-76 lead into the final frame.
