Warriors squander Curry's 40 points, lose to Grizzlies in OT

Durant then bricked a deep three. The offense was totally disconnected, as was painfully obvious in this sequence from the game's closing minute: Kevin Durant calling for the ball, Curry seemingly a bit frustrated as he relents and hands it over, Draymond Green responding with visible annoyance.

Green and Durant then had a passionate exchange on the bench.

The Rockets won their seventh consecutive game and their 18th of the last 20.

The back-to-back MVP started out on fire, scoring 17 first quarter points, half of the team's output in the period, while Klay Thompson added 12 as the Warriors built a 15-point lead midway through the second frame.

LeBron James scored 29 of his 36 points in the first three quarters and was resting when Irving came through to stave off a Brooklyn comeback after Cleveland allowed the first 11 points of the fourth. And that's our goal. So, trying to win every regular-season game - it really don't matter. I want to see us get better each and every time we step on the floor, and I don't feel like that's been happening for the things we need to get better at. In the fourth quarter, when the Warriors floundered, Thompson was stuck standing in the corner and not moving off the ball, according to Green. While he didn't escalate any real or perceived issue he had with Durant - he said he couldn't even remember what the final play call was supposed to be - he was openly happy with the loss, which he saw as a learning opportunity.

KD said Draymond told him they "should've stuck with the pick-and-roll" on that late interaction. Obviously KD takes that shot, he makes it, things are a little different. We'll look at the tape and continue to experiment and try different things.
