NBA Game Summary - Toronto at Golden State



(Tuesday, December 3rd)

Final Score: Golden State 112, Toronto 103

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Stephen Curry poured in 27 points and 10 assists, Klay Thompson netted 22 points and the Golden State Warriors outscored the Toronto Raptors 42-15 in the fourth quarter en route to an improbable 112-103 win.

Harrison Barnes scored 19 points, while David Lee added 18 points and eight rebounds for the Warriors.

DeMar DeRozan paced the Raptors with 26 points, Kyle Lowry scored 20 points with nine assists, and Rudy Gay tallied 18 points in the brutal setback.

"We were bad on both sides of the basketball but I am extremely proud of my basketball team," said Golden State head coach Marc Jackson. "This being my third year here, there hasn't been a bigger win in regards to statement. Those guys in the second half were incredible and in the fourth quarter exceptional."

Toronto built its lead to as many as 27 in the second half after a Lowry jumper at 9:20 of the third.

The comeback was on from there, as the Warriors outscored Toronto 64-28 over the final 21:03 and secured the seventh largest comeback in NBA history.

Midway through the fourth, Curry hit a running jumper and a free throw to convert the three-point play to cut the deficit to 97-92.

After a pair of free throws from Gay, Thompson knocked down one of his four threes in the final stanza. Curry followed with a 3-pointer from the far corner to cut the deficit to one, 99-98, with 3:48 to play.

Draymond Green missed a 3-pointer that would have given the Warriors their first lead since 12 seconds into the contest, but Jermaine O'Neal kept it alive with a pivotal offensive rebound.

O'Neal whipped it to Thompson at the top of the key, who swung it to Curry on the wing. As Tyler Hansbrough closed out on the play, Curry dribbled to his left and buried a triple as Oracle Arena proceeded to erupt.

DeRozan tied the game, 101-101, after a tough layup, but Thompson hit his fourth 3-pointer of the quarter with 2:28 to play.

The Warriors led 106-103 with 47.2 seconds left when Barnes joined the party and hit a three from the wing that all but sealed it for Golden State.

"It's one of those where they started hitting the 3 in the third quarter and we couldn't turn the water off," Toronto coach Dwane Casey said. "We did an excellent job in the first three quarters and then we couldn't score in the fourth quarter."

Terrence Ross tipped in a Gay miss with 2:49 left in the first which was the first bucket of a 15-2 run to end the quarter. Lowry had seven points during the spurt, including a 3-pointer with 1.5 seconds left, that helped the Raptors to a 36-19 lead after 12 minutes.

Golden State cut the deficit to single digits after a pair of free throws from Barnes with 3:47 left in the second. The Raptors, however, ended the second stanza on a 17-9 run to take a 65-48 lead into the break.
