DALLAS (AP) -- Stephen Curry scored 20 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, and his assist on David Lee's go-ahead layup with 32.8 seconds left helped the Golden State Warriors beat the Dallas Mavericks 105-101 Monday night. Curry had six points and three assists in the extra period. The fourth-year guard fed Lee on his basket that put Golden State up 101-99. O.J. Mayo scored 27 points, including all 11 of the Mavericks' points in overtime. His eight-footer in the lane tied it at 99 with 41.2 seconds left in overtime. Lee had 17 points and a season-high 19 rebounds, and rookie Harrison Barnes had 20 points and 12 rebounds for Golden State. Darren Collison hit a 20-foot jumper with 36.9 seconds remaining to force overtime for Dallas, which has lost five of seven since a 4-1 start. Curry hit a 14-footer on Golden State's first possession of overtime. He then fed Festus Ezeli for a dunk and found Barnes for a 3-pointer to give the Warriors a 97-90 lead. Mayo scored the next seven points and his layup tied it at 97 with 1:38 left in overtime. Curry hit two free throws to give the Warriors a 99-97 advantage with 51.1 seconds remaining. After Lee's basket, Mayo missed a potential tying jumper. Curry and Draymond Green each hit a pair of free throws to give Golden State just their third win in its last 11 games against Dallas. Chris Kaman had 18 points and a season-high 17 rebounds for Dallas, and reserve Troy Murphy chipped in 12 points. Curry scored 14 of Golden State's last 17 points in regulation. He hit a 16-foot jumper off one leg to give Golden State a 90-88 lead with 1:57 left. Collison hit a 20-foot jumper with the shot clock running down to tie it at 90 with 36.9 seconds remaining. The Mavericks had a chance to win it after that, but Vince Carter missed a long jumper over Barnes on the last play of regulation. That capped a nip-and-tuck second half in which neither team led by more than six points. Lee had 10 points and 12 rebounds in the first half, helping the Warriors take a 43-38 halftime lead. He had a pair of baskets in a 12-2 run in the second quarter that gave Golden State a 35-25 advantage, its largest of the first half. NOTES: Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said All-Star forward Dirk Nowitzki has "picked up his activity level" in his rehab from Oct. 19 surgery on his right knee. Carlisle didn't say when Nowitzki might be able to practice again. Nowitzki was expected to resume on-court activities six weeks after the surgery. . Golden State F Richard Jefferson missed the game with a strained right calf.
