Curry's game winner lifts Warriors in OT

DALLAS — Stephen Curry made a tiebreaking jumper in the final second of overtime, lifting the Warriors to a 122-120 win over the Mavericks on Tuesday.

Curry finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds. Klay Thompson led Golden State with 27 points, and Jermaine O'Neal added 20.

O'Neal blocked a Dallas shot with the score tied at 120, setting the stage for Curry's game-winning shot from 20 feet.

Dirk Nowitzki led the Mavs with 33 points and 11 rebounds. Dallas dropped from seventh in the Western Conference to ninth behind Memphis and Phoenix in the final two playoff positions.

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: The host Nets clinched a playoff berth by beating the Rockets for the first time since 2006, getting 32 from Joe Johnson in a 105-96 win.

REFS BOTCHED CALL: In the Nuggets' loss to the Grizzlies on Monday, Memphis' Courtney Lee missed a free throw with 0.7 seconds remaining that was rebounded by Kenneth Faried as time ticked away. The league stated on Tuesday that Lee's shot did not touch the rim and referees should have awarded Denver the ball on the violation.

HEAT'S BIG 3 WILL MEET: Heat teammates Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh all have opt-outs in their contracts at the end of this season, but no collective decision has been made as to whether they will become free agents. Wade told ESPN The Magazine that he will "sit down'' with James and Bosh before the June 30 deadline.
