PHOENIX (AP) — Stephen Curry scored 18 points and matched his career high with 15 assists, sinking two late free throws to seal Golden State’s 111-107 victory over Phoenix on Friday, extending the Suns’ losing streak to a season-worst eight games.

Jarrett Jack’s 3-pointer with 31.6 seconds to play pulled the Warriors out of serious trouble.

Klay Thompson scored 15 of his 25 points in the third quarter, when the Warriors stormed back from an 18-point first-half deficit. David Lee added 22 points and 14 rebounds for Golden State.

Goran Dragic tied his career high with 32 points and Michael Beasley added 25 for the Suns, who shot a season-best 61 percent from the field.

The Warriors have won three straight and five of six.

Golden State swept the season series with Phoenix 4-0.

Consecutive baskets by Beasley cut the lead to 104-102 with 1:29 to play and Phoenix got the ball back, but Beasley’s pass was intercepted by Carl Landry and Jack’s 3 made it 107-102.

Dragic’s two free throws with 22 seconds to go cut it to 107-104, then Curry threw the ball away for an over-and-back violation, giving the Suns the ball with 18 seconds left.

Jermaine O’Neal was fouled but made just the first of two free throws, keeping Golden State ahead 107-105 with 17.2 seconds to play. Curry’s two free throws with 14.8 seconds left put the Warriors ahead 109-105. O’Neal scored on a rebound with just 0.5 seconds to play, then Jack added two from the line to make the final 111-107.



Mavericks 117,

Kings 108

Shawn Marion had 25 points and 12 rebounds, and the Dallas Mavericks snapped a two-game losing streak.

Dallas, which scored 99 points over the final three quarters, swept all four games from the Kings this season and has defeated Sacramento in 15 of last 16 meetings.

Isaiah Thomas had 29 points and Tyreke Evans added 26 points and nine rebounds for theKings, who dropped their third straight game. Jason Thompson had 16 points and 16 rebounds.

DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento’s leading scorer and rebounder, was replaced in the starting lineup by Patrick Patterson for unknown reasons. Cousins entered the game at the start of the second quarter and finished with six points in nine minutes.
