Klay’s late trey lifts Warriors past Nets

Klay Thompson drilled a clutch 3-pointer with 12.5 seconds remaining and combined with Stephen Curry to score Golden State’s final 17 points Saturday night, allowing the Warriors to outlast the visiting Brooklyn Nets 110-106 in San Francisco.
On a night when they combined to shoot just 10-for-32 overall and 5-for-18 on 3-pointers, Curry (19 points) and Thompson (16) got plenty of support from Andrew Wiggins, who went for a team-high 24 points.
Able to play because the game was on the road, Kyrie Irving paced the Nets with 32 points. James Harden (sore right hand) joined Kevin Durant (sprained left knee) on the sidelines.
After Irving and Patty Mills hit two free throws apiece to get Brooklyn within 104-103 with 30.8 seconds to go, Thompson took a Curry pass and drilled just his second 3-pointer of the night to make it a four-point game.
Raptors 124, Heat 120 (3 OT)
Fred VanVleet’s 3-pointer with 2:17 to play in the third overtime period gave visiting Toronto a five-point lead, and it held on to defeat Miami. Gary Trent Jr. scored 33 for the Raptors, who have split the first two of a three-game road trip. Scottie Barnes finished with 22 points and nine rebounds for Toronto. Pascal Siakam added 21 points, 13 rebounds, six assists, four steals and four blocked shots while OG Anunoby had 20 points and 14 rebounds.
Jimmy Butler had 37 points, 14 rebounds and 10 assists for the Heat, who had a three-game winning streak end. Gabe Vincent scored 17 points for Miami, Bam Adebayo had 14 points and 16 rebounds and Tyler Herro had 13 points.
Grizzlies 115, Wizards 95
Ja Morant scored 34 points to lead six players in double figures as Memphis led wire-to-wire in a rout of visiting Washington.
The Grizzlies have won three straight and 16 of their last 19 games. Desmond Bane scored 19 points for the Grizzlies, De’Anthony Melton added 13 points and Steven Adams recorded a double-double with 10 points and 15 rebounds.
Kyle Kuzma paced Washington with 30 points, all after the first quarter. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 15 points and Spencer Dinwiddie had 10.
