Los Angeles: Stephen Curry scored the last of his 42 points on a driving lay-up with a half-second remaining Sunday and reigning NBA champion Golden State edged the Los Angeles Clippers 129-127.

Kevin Durant added 35 points and 12 rebounds for the Warriors (23-11), who won for the eighth time in 10 games despite the Clippers hitting 18-of-23 three-point attempts. Curry did not play when the Clippers beat the Warriors in overtime earlier this season but the two-time NBA Most Valuable Player lifted Golden State on his shoulders in the rematch and closed out the victory with his dramatic winning shot. Kyrie Irving scored 25 points to lead the Boston Celtics over visiting Charlotte 119-103 while Tyler Johnson scored 20 of his 25 points in the third quarter of Miami’s 115-91 win at Orlando.
