Golden State edges past Raptors 127-125, DeRozan scores 42

Golden State edges past Raptors 127-125, DeRozan scores 42

Trailing by 14 at halftime, the Bucks turned to the Golden State way to get back in the game - hitting clutch shots from 3-point range.

DeRozan finished with 42 points - cracking the 30-point plateau for a club-record 92nd time. Golden State's 19 road wins are the most in the National Basketball Association.

"We were just too antsy (in first half), jumping at everything they did, over-reacting".

"The whole second half was just nasty for us, period", Wall said. Jarrett Allen added 16 points and DeMarre Carroll had 13 points and 10 rebounds for the Nets, who have yet to win in three overtime contests this season. Serge Ibaka, returning after a one-game suspension, had 14 points.

The Warriors did not make it easy Saturday night, but they still escaped with a 127-125 victory over the Toronto Raptors to secure their 12th consecutive road win. For the Warriors, Stephen Curry (sprained right ankle) is questionable, and the status of Omri Casspi is unknown after he missed Friday's game with back soreness.

"It's sore but it felt good enough to play", Curry said.

It was a fun, competitive battle. "During replay, we checked the loose ball sequence at the sideline and we determined that Toronto's DeMar DeRozan caused the ball to go out of bounds with three seconds remaining". DeRozan then responded by cutting the Raptors' deficit to 123-122 with 1:03 to play. They scored 81 first-half points, their season high for any half.




Toronto outscored the Warriors 35-27 in the third to cut their lead to 108-89 heading into the fourth.

But the wheels fell off in the fourth for Golden State as Toronto slowed the Warriors' roll and closed the gap to one point in the closing moments.

Milwaukee's three-point shooting defense has improved of late after holding four of the previous five opponents to 31 percent or less from beyond the arc.

The Air Canada Centre gathering got to cheer when Durant missed a dunk with 2:53 left to play.

Head coach Dwane Casey has chose to open up his offense a bit this season. "I'm glad we got the 'W, ' especially on the second night of a back-to-back". They scored 43 first-quarter points, their most in an opening frame this season.

A report of the calls made inside the final two minutes will be released Sunday afternoon (as is done after every game).
