Draymond Green ejected in Warriors' win vs. Suns | NBA Highlights

Stephen Curry saved 10 of his 20 points for a fourth-quarter rally that enabled the Golden State Warriors to overtake the host Phoenix Suns 117-107 Friday night for their 11th consecutive road win. Kevin Durant added 21 points and DeMarcus Cousins 18. Draymond Green gets ejected at the end of the 3rd quarter as he argues a call.

Oubre (25 points, 12 rebounds) and Deandre Ayton (23 points, 12 rebounds) recorded double-doubles for Phoenix, which lost its fifth straight home game. Their grit and determination nearly paid off against the lackluster Warriors, and had it not been for the Golden State bench (they were a combined +66, compared to the starters who were collectively -16), Phoenix would have probably secured their biggest win of the season. After finding themselves on the wrong side of a 26-9 run to start the game, they surged ahead in the final minutes en route to the 10-point win, holding Phoenix to just 22 points in the fourth quarter.

"We can compete", said Ayton, the No. 1 pick in last year's draft. "We can challenge any team".

Down 94-88, Golden State took control with a 13-0 run - capped by Curry's 3-pointer that put the Warriors up 101-94 with 5:46 remaining. Richaun Holmes' tip-in cut the lead to 101-98 with 4:58 left. "So Phoenix played really well, harder, smarter than us".

Oubre made one free throw with 4.9 seconds left, missed the second and grabbed the rebound for a dunk that put the Suns up 85-82 entering the final quarter. The Warriors won the last matchup between these two teams 132-109 on December 31. Even though Devin Booker is averaging career-high numbers, the rest of the team has not been able to replicate the same success and are now at the bottom of the table with an 11-45 record.

Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry said the decision not to send Davis back into the game when things got close was to do with his lack of recent playing time.

In other games on Friday, the Washington Wizards overpowered the Cleveland Cavaliers 119-106, the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Denver Nuggets 117-110 and the Detroit Pistons crushed the New York Knicks 120-103.
