LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dennis Schroeder completed a three-point play with 7.6 seconds after a steal and the Las Angeles Lakers rallied to beat Memphis 122-121 on Friday night, snapping the Grizzlies’ winning streak at 11.
The Lakers trailed 114-107 before outscoring the Grizzlies 15-7 the rest of the way.
Schroeder, who scored 19 points, stole the ball from Desmond Bane near halfcourt and made a layup while being fouled by Bane to tie it at 120. Schoeder then made a free throw for the lead.
After a timeout, Memphis’ Brandon Clarke was fouled with 1.9 seconds remaining. He made the first, but missed the second. Bane got the offensive rebound, but lost control of it to give the Lakers possession with 0.4 seconds left.
WARRIORS 120, CAVALIERS 114
Ty Jerome added a season-high 22 points as the defending NBA champs ended a five-game trip with an improbable win.
It hardly mattered. Even with their top players on the bench in street clothes, the short-handed Warriors came out firing and barely slowed down.
Darius Garland scored 31 points to lead the Cavs, who were without star Donovan Mitchell because of a strained groin and suffered their most embarrassing loss this season. Caris LeVert added 22 points and Evan Mobley 17 for Cleveland.
Golden State made a season-high 14 3-pointers in the first half — tying the most ever by a Cavs opponent for a half — to take a 64-59 halftime lead.
NETS 117, JAZZ 106
Irving accounted for 18 of the Nets’ 43 baskets by himself. He also had 11 rebounds and six assists, leading Brooklyn in both categories.
Nic Claxton added 20 points for the Nets. Royce O’Neale chipped in 13 points and six assists in his first game back in Utah since being traded to Brooklyn before the season.
The two-time reigning NBA MVP sat out due to hamstring tightness.
Bennedict Mathurin had 19 points for the Pacers, who dropped their sixth straight game.
MAVERICKS 115, HEAT 90
DALLAS (AP) — Luka Doncic had 34 points and 12 rebounds and Dallas turned up the defensive intensity in a victory over Miami.
The Mavericks were without No. 2 scorer Christian Wood, who missed the first of what will be multiple games with a broken left thumb. They responded two nights after blistering criticism of their defense from coach Jason Kidd by holding the Heat to 33% shooting in the first and third quarters combined while outscoring Miami 63-35.
Victor Oladipo scored 20 points for Miami. Bam Adebayo had 18 points and 11 rebounds.
SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Kawhi Leonard scored a season-high 36 points against his former team, helping Los Angeles beat San Antonio to snap a two-game skid.
Leonard put on a show on the court where he won NBA Finals MVP in 2014 with the Spurs. The 6-foot-7 forward was 13 for 18 from the field and 4 for 5 on 3-pointers while adding seven assists, four rebounds and two steals.
