Grizzlies stop Warriors' win streak at 16 with 105-98 victory

The Memphis Grizzlies beat the Golden State Warriors, 105-98, stopping the Warriors' win streak at 16 games

Marc Gasol scored 24 points, and the Memphis Grizzlies ended the Golden State Warriors' NBA-best 16-game winning streak with a 105-98 victory Tuesday night in Memphis.

Mike Conley and Zach Randolph each scored 17 points, and Randolph also had 10 rebounds as Memphis earned its fifth straight win.

The Warriors came in with the NBA's best record at 21-2. They lost for the first time since Nov. 11 against the San Antonio Spurs, also the last team to beat Memphis. This was the first time in NBA history in which both teams had 19 or more wins in their first 24 games.

Golden State star Stephen Curry missed back-to-back three-point shots in the final 10 seconds. He had 19 points on nine-for-25 shooting, including a one-for-10 effort from beyond the arc.

Oklahoma City 104, at Sacramento 92: Russell Westbrook had 32 points and seven assists and the Thunder won its seventh in a row. The Kings played their first game since Michael Malone was fired as coach and lead assistant Tyrone Corbin took over.

at New Orleans 119, Utah 111: Anthony Davis returned from a chest injury and scored 31 points to help the Pelicans overcame a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit. Davis, who sat out most of Friday night's victory over Cleveland and all of Sunday night's loss to Golden State, played with a protective vest.

Dallas 107, at New York 87: The Mavericks made 13 of their first 16 shots and built a 34-15 lead to crush the Knicks, who fell to 3-11 at home. Dirk Nowitzki scored 16 points for Dallas.

Miami 95, at Brooklyn 91: Dwyane Wade scored 28 points, and the Heat had five players reach double figures. The game was delayed for 29 minutes in the first quarter when the installation of a new green roof at Barclays Center led to a water leak.

at Washington 109, Minnesota 95: John Wall scored 21 points and equaled a career high with 17 assists and the Wizards won their fifth in a row.
