ATLANTA — Andre Iguodala hit a three-pointer at the buzzer, David Lee scored 23 points and the Golden State Warriors won their eighth straight game with a 101-100 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night.
Stephen Curry added 22 points with nine assists and former Cougar Klay Thompson 21 for Golden State, which recovered from a 15-point deficit in the fourth quarter to get back in the game and extend its road winning streak to five straight.
Pero Antic finished with a career-high 16 points and Shelvin Mack had 15 for the Hawks.
Iguodala was open after Curry drew a double team. Iguodala took Curry’s bounce pass, squared up and hit the game-winner.
“Every part of that play worked because everybody ran like they were going to get the ball,” Iguodala said. “The defense had to stay honest and pick their poison.”
DALLAS — Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul will miss three to five weeks after separating his right shoulder in a game against Dallas.
Paul was tripped by Mavericks guard Monta Ellis while dribbling around a screen. Paul rolled over and stayed on the floor holding his shoulder while trainers attended to him.
• New Orleans reserve forward Ryan Anderson was taken from the court on a stretcher after colliding with Boston’s Gerald Wallace in the fourth quarter. The early diagnosis indicated a “cervical stinger” and he was taken to a hospital. The Pelicans won 95-92. Avery Bradley from Bellarmine Prep in Tacoma scored 22 points for the Celtics.
• James Harden scored 37 points and Aaron Brooks from Franklin High School in Seattle made two free throws with 17 seconds left to send the host Houston Rockets past the New York Knicks 102-100.
• Pau Gasol had 23 points and 17 rebounds and the host Los Angeles Lakers used their sixth different starting point guard — Kendall Marshall — of the season in a 110-99 victory over the Utah Jazz. Marshall finished with 20 points and 15 assists in 40 minutes — all career highs.
• The two-game suspension of Denver Nuggets guard Andre Miller was rescinded by the team, though he will remain away from the club until Monday.
