Recap: Golden State vs. Dallas

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Stephen Curry sure made up for all those turnovers over the first three quarters.

Curry had 16 of his 33 points in the fourth, including a go-ahead jumper with three seconds left as the Golden State Warriors defeated the Dallas Mavericks 95-93 on Wednesday night.

Monta Ellis, who played for Golden State from 2005-12, drove in for a reverse layup with 1:26 remaining to give Dallas a 92-86 lead before Curry's four- point play and Draymond Green's right wing triple put the Warriors in front for the first time since the 6:45 mark of the opening frame.

Ellis split a pair of free throws at the other end to knot the tilt at 93-93 with 46.8 ticks to go and Curry's driving layup on the Warriors' next touch didn't drop.

Ellis missed a fallaway jumper from the foul line with 24.9 seconds on the clock. Curry then got the ball at the top of the arc with Shawn Marion guarding him. Curry dribbled to the right elbow, moved Marion out of the way with a pump fake and then calmly rose up and knocked down the jumper.

"We wanted to dwindle the clock down and he did what big time players do," Golden State head coach Mark Jackson said of Curry's go-ahead bucket.

Jose Calderon's shot from beyond halfcourt at the buzzer came up short.

Curry turned the ball over eight times through the first three frames, but didn't give it away in the fourth.

Harrison Barnes netted 17 points and Andrew Bogut pulled down 18 rebounds for the Warriors, who have won four of their last six contests.

Ellis and Dirk Nowitzki donated 21 points apiece for Dallas, which has dropped two straight on the heels of a three-game winning streak.

"You can take a positive from this," Ellis said. "It went all the way to the end, and they had to make a great shot. Steph (Curry) did and they won."

Earlier, Dallas led 23-16 after a quarter of play and by as many as 18 in the second before settling for a 55-44 cushion at the break.

Golden State tallied the final six points of the third to whittle its deficit to 72-66 heading into the fourth.

Game Notes

Golden State signed center Hilton Armstrong earlier on Wednesday ... Klay Thompson was just 3-of-14 from the field and had 11 points for the Warriors ... Calderon had 18 points and five assists.
