Warriors 100, Mavericks 97

Associated Press  |  Last updated February 01, 2013
David Lee finished an assist short of a triple-double, Klay Thompson scored 27 points and the Golden State Warriors beat the Dallas Mavericks 100-97 Thursday night. Lee had 15 points, a season-high 20 rebounds and nine assists, and Jarrett Jack scored 13 points, including two free throws with 2 seconds left to help the Warriors win their third straight. Harrison Barnes also had 15 points. O.J. Mayo scored 25 points to lead the Mavericks, who dropped their second straight. Vince Carter added 22 points and Shawn Marion 18 as Dallas failed to reach 100 points for the first time in 10 games. Richard Jefferson scored five points as the Warriors scored the first 12 points of the fourth quarter to open a 90-79 advantage. The Mavericks missed their five points of the fourth and went scoreless for the first 3:13 before Carter made a pair of free throws to spark a run that evened the score at 92 when Darren Collison hit a short jumper with 4:17 remaining to play. Jack hit a 3-pointer in front of the Mavericks bench less than a minute later and glanced at the Dallas bench afterward. The Warriors, who never trailed in the game, upped their lead when Brandan Wright was called for a foul on Bogut. After reviewing the play, he was also charged with a technical foul. Dallas again rallied and had a chance to tie it with 43 seconds left. Mayo made one of his two free throws to make it 98-97. Jack and Lee each missed a shot on the other end and the Mavericks worked the clock to under 4 seconds. Wright attempted a shot that Bogut blocked to seal the win. Thompson connected on 11 of his first 14 shots two days after scoring a career-high 32 points in the Warriors' 108-95 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Warriors led 55-53 at halftime, and Rodrigue Beaubois hit a long 3-pointer at the third-quarter buzzer to pull the Mavericks to 80-79 entering the final period. Carl Landry, who finished with 10 points, gave the Warriors their biggest lead of the first half when he made two free throws just over 2 minutes into the second quarter. The Mavericks lost their second straight to Golden State after winning eight of the previous 10. NOTES: Lee reached the 8,000-point mark for his career, becoming the sixth-youngest active to player to record 8,000 points and 5,000 rebounds. ... Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle is two wins shy of 500. ... Warriors G Stephen Curry (right ankle sprain) sat out his second straight game, though coach Mark Jackson indicated before the game that the injury is of ''no concern.'' ... Mayo is the only Maverick to start all 46 games and Thompson is the lone Warrior to start all 46.
