OAKLAND, Calif. — Stephen Curry hit a go-ahead jumper with 2.1 seconds left, lifting the Golden State Warriors over the skidding Boston Celtics 99-97 on Friday night in their first game back home after a long road trip.
Curry came off a pick-and-roll with David Lee before hitting the high-arching shot over center Kris Humphries to electrify the sellout crowd of 19,596. Gerald Wallace missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer, sending Boston to its seventh straight loss.
Two nights after its 10-game winning streak ended at Brooklyn, Golden State gave its home fans another memory to savor.
Andre Iguodala had 22 points, seven assists and five rebounds, and Curry finished with 19 points, seven rebounds and four assists for a worn-out Warriors team that badly needs some rest.
