Warriors win on buzzer beater

– Andre Iguodala was delighted to help Golden State sneak out of Atlanta with a last-second victory over the Hawks on Friday night.

Iguodala hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer, David Lee scored 23 points and the Warriors won their eighth straight game with a 101-100 victory over the Hawks.

“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.”

Stephen Curry added 22 points with nine assists and Klay Thompson had 21 points for Golden State, which recovered from a 15-point deficit in the fourth quarter to extend its road winning streak to five.

RAPTORS 101, WIZARDS 88: In Washington, DeMar DeRozan scored 20 points, and Kyle Lowry had 19 points and 11 assists as Toronto won its season-high fifth consecutive game.

PELICANS 95, CELTICS 92: In Boston, Anthony Davis had 23 points and nine rebounds, and Tyreke Evans scored 16 points with a key basket late to lead New Orleans.

The win may prove costly for the Pelicans after reserve forward Ryan Anderson was taken from the court on a stretcher after he collided with Boston’s Gerald Wallace early in the fourth quarter.

The Celtics said a preliminary diagnosis indicated a “cervical stinger.”

ROCKETS 102, KNICKS 100: In Houston, James Harden scored 37 points, and Aaron Brooks made a pair of free throws with 17 seconds left to lift Houston.

CLIPPERS 119, MAVERICKS 112: In Dallas, DeAndre Jordan scored a career-high 25 points to match Blake Griffin, and Los Angeles rallied after Chris Paul left with a shoulder injury midway through the third quarter.

NUGGETS 111, GRIZZLIES 108: In Denver, Ty Lawson scored 18 points, including a key 3-pointer with less than a minute to play, as Denver snapped an eight-game losing streak.
