Curry scores 41 in Warriors win
OAKLAND, Calif. — Stephen Curry scored 41 points and became the first player in NBA history to make 300 3-pointers in a season, and the Golden State Warriors set another record in a season full of them by holding off the Orlando Magic 119-113 Monday night for their 45th straight home victory.
Curry didn't match his 51-point performance against the Magic on Feb. 25 in which he hit 10 of 15 3-pointers, but shot 7 for 13 from long range and also pulled down 13 rebounds. He has 301 3s with 20 games to go.
Golden State surpassed the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' 44 straight regular-season home victories and improved to 26-0 at Oracle Arena this season with its franchise-best sixth straight win against Orlando.
Klay Thompson added 27 points for the Warriors (56-6), who overcame a season-high 24 turnovers to bounce back from an ugly 112-95 road loss to the Lakers on Sunday that snapped a seven-game winning streak.
Aaron Gordon had 20 points and 16 rebounds in his Bay Area homecoming on a night Orlando played without leading scorer and center Nikola Vucevic because of a strained right groin.
GRIZZLIES 106, CAVALIERS 103: At Cleveland, Tony Allen scored a season-high 26 points and Memphis, despite playing without four injured starters, stunned Cleveland. Vince Carter made four free throws in the final 13.4 seconds to steal the upset.
PACERS 99, SPURS 91: At Indianapolis, Monta Ellis scored 26 points and Paul George added 23 to help Indiana end San Antonio's eight-game winning streak. The Pacers led by double digits most of the night.
CLIPPERS 109, MAVERICKS 90: At Dallas, Chris Paul scored 18 of his 27 points when Los Angeles took control in the third quarter, and DeAndre Jordan had 23 points and 20 rebounds.
BULLS 100, BUCKS 90: At Chicago, Pau Gasol had 12 points, 17 rebounds, 13 assists and five blocked shots, and banged-up Chicago beat Milwaukee with All-Star Jimmy Butler sidelined by swelling in his left knee.
PELICANS 115, KINGS 112: At New Orleans, Anthony Davis had 31 points and 10 rebounds, and New Orleans came back from a 17-point, second-half deficit to beat Sacramento. DeMarcus Cousins had 40 points, 16 rebounds and four steals for the Kings.
HORNETS 108, TIMBERWOLVES 103: At Charlotte, N.C., Kemba Walker scored 21 of his 34 points in the third quarter and Charlotte held off Minnesota for its fourth straight win. Al Jefferson came off the bench to add 20 points, Marvin Williams had 15 and Nicolas Batum 11 for the Hornets.
