Steph Curry produces fourth-quarter heroics to lift Warriors to victory over Suns

Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

Stephen Curry was the fourth-quarter hero as the Golden State Warriors claimed an 11th straight road win at Phoenix Suns.

Curry scored 10 fourth-quarter points as Phoenix, who led by as many as 17 in the first quarter, failed to hold on to a six-point advantage with under nine minutes left on the clock.

The Warriors scored 13 consecutive points at 94-88 down, and Curry’s late scoring spree saw them home 117-107 with Klay Thompson (25) top scoring.

Anthony Davis returned from a three-week absence to score 32 points as the New Orleans Pelicans beat Minnesota Timberwolves 122-117.

Davis was booed during his pre-game introduction and whenever he touched the ball during his first appearance since asking for a trade and recovering from a finger injury.

The All-Star forward sat out the final 15-plus minutes, but there was no sign of injury as he stayed on the bench and Jrue Holiday (27) and rookie Kenrich Williams (19) guided the Pelicans to victory.

Former Pelican Nikola Mirotic, acquired by Milwaukee at the trade deadline, was missing as the Bucks won 122-107 at the Dallas Mavericks.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 29 points and grabbed 17 rebounds as the Bucks recorded a sixth consecutive win, with Brook Lopez (20), Eric Bledsoe (18) and Malcolm Brogdon (18) also in scoring form.
