Warriors escape to tie road wins mark

MEMPHIS — One record matched, one more to go for the Golden State Warriors.

Draymond Green scored on a tip-in in with one minute left, and the Warriors rallied from 10 points down early in the fourth quarter and beat the Grizzlies 100-99 on Saturday night to tie at least one league record held by the 1995-96 Michael Jordan-led Bulls.

Golden State now has 33 road wins, tying those Bulls, who went 33-8 away from Chicago. The Warriors (71-9) visit the Spurs tonight, and their next win will tie the Bulls' single-season record of 72 victories — but the Warriors have lost 33 straight in San Antonio.

Green finished with 23 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, Klay Thompson had 20 points, Stephen Curry 17 and Harrison Barnes 14 for the Warriors.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr held center Andrew Bogut out to rest him up for the second game in Golden State's back-to-back weekend.

Memphis' Lance Stephenson missed two shots in the final seconds on a drive and again on a flip toward the basket. Officials reviewed the play and gave the ball to the Warriors with 0.8 seconds remaining to finish off the comeback.

Matt Barnes scored 24 points and grabbed 15 rebounds for Memphis, and Vince Carter added 15.

REPORT: ROCKETS UNDER SCRUTINY: The Rockets are planning a comprehensive evaluation of their organization that will put general manager Daryl Morey and interim coach J.B. Bickerstaff under the microscope, according to espn.com. Houston (38-41) is one game behind No. 8 Utah and three behind No. 7 Dallas.

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: Jimmy Butler scored 21, Cristiano Felicio added a career-high 16 and the Bulls kept their playoff hopes alive with a 105-102 victory over the Cavaliers. Chicago kept Cleveland from clinching the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference even though LeBron James scored 33. … Paul Millsap had a season-high 31 points and 16 rebounds, Jeff Teague added 24 points and the host Hawks beat the Celtics 118-107. Kent Bazemore finished with 21 points for Atlanta, which moved one game ahead of Boston to take sole possession of third place in the Eastern Conference.
