Warriors hold off Nets

Nov 14, 2014 - 6:29 AM Oakland, CA ( - Klay Thompson scored 25 points and the Golden State Warriors fended off a late rally to top the Brooklyn Nets, 107-99, on Thursday.

Draymond Green scored 17 points with eight rebounds and a career-best seven assists and Andrew Bogut did a little bit of everything, contributing 11 points, 14 rebounds, five assists and four blocked shots.

Steph Curry also scored 17 with five assists, a pedestrian night by his lofty standards, as the Warriors got back in the win column following consecutive defeats.

The Nets got 23 points from Jarrett Jack, who made all 10 of his shots off the bench, and 18 points apiece by Brook Lopez and Deron Williams. They shot just 3-of-16 from behind the arc.

Bojan Bogdanovic's layup 4:20 into the game gave the Nets an early 18-11 lead. Out of a timeout, Green hit a pair of 3-pointers and Harrison Barnes hit from deep, as a quick 9-2 run tied the game at 20.

The Nets went back in front and led 36-32 after one. A pair of Williams free throws had them up five midway through the second, but it was all Warriors after that.

Thompson's triple and two Bogut free throws jumpstarted a 22-6 run to close out the half.

Thompson hit another long ball during the flurry and Andre Iguodala came alive, converting a three-point play and two dunks. Thompson split a pair from the line with less than a second to go, and Golden State owned a 66-55 lead at halftime.

Brooklyn made one final push in the fourth quarter, pulling to within five, 93-88, with 6:11 to play. But out of a timeout, Curry drained a difficult triple to stretch the lead back to eight.
