Stephen Curry scored 48 points, making 11 3-pointers, and the Golden State Warriors held off the Dallas Mavericks 119-114 on Sunday night at Dallas.

Kevin Durant added 28 points and Klay Thompson had nine of his 16 in the fourth quarter.

Curry’s 11th 3-pointer –tying a season high – gave the Warriors a 117-114 lead.

Draymond Green blocked Jalen Brunson’s drive at the other end and secured the loose ball. The Mavericks forced a miss, but Harrison Barnes turned the ball over in the frontcourt with 5 seconds left. Curry sealed the game with free throws.

Magic 116, Rockets 109: Nikola Vucevic and Aaron Gordon each scored 22 points and Orlando took advantage of James Harden’s awful 3-point shooting to beat Houston at Orlando, Florida.

Harden scored 38 points to push his run of 30-point games to 16, but was 1 of 17 from 3-point range to tie Damon Stoudamire’s NBA record for misses in a game. Stoudamire was 5 for 21 from 3-point range for Portland against Golden State on April 15, 2005. Harden was 11 of 32 overall from the field, made 15 of 16 free throws and had 12 assists and nine rebounds.

The Raptors blew a 23-point lead before outlasting the Wizards.

Kawhi Leonard led Toronto with 41 points and 11 rebounds, and Pascal Siakim had 24 points and a career-high 19 rebounds.

Bradley Beal had his second triple-double of the season for Washington, finishing with season highs of 43 points and 15 rebounds and adding 10 assists. Otto Porter had 27 points, and Trevor Ariza narrowly missed his second career triple-double with 23 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds.

Nuggets 116, Trail Blazers 113: Nikola Jokic scored a season-high 40 points, Jamal Murray fought through a bloody lip to add 24 and Denver beat Portland at Denver.

Jokic finished a point off his career high. He added 10 rebounds and eight assists, just missing his sixth-triple double of the season. Murray’s lip was bloodied when he took an elbow to the mouth from Jusuf Nurkic on a drive to the basket early in the third quarter.

Denver rebounded from a loss at Phoenix on Saturday night for its 12th home win in a row.

Damian Lillard led Portland with 26 points, and CJ McCollum had 18 points.
