Recap: Cleveland vs. Golden State

Cleveland, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Andre Iguodala found Draymond Green for the go-ahead slam with nearly a minute left in overtime, and the Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers, 108-104, at Quicken Loans Arena.

Stephen Curry iced the outcome by sinking a jumper from the left wing with 13.5 seconds left, sending the Warriors to their fifth straight victory. It was also Golden State's sixth consecutive win against the Cavaliers, tying a franchise-record.

Curry ended with 29 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds, while David Lee contributed 19 points before fouling out in overtime.

It was a positive start to a seven-game road trip for the Warriors.

"It wasn't quite in the fashion that we wanted to do it," Green said about the win. "One thing we talked about is showing some resolve. When things aren't going our way and everything's going their way, continue to fight and don't let go of the rope. On a road trip like this, to start out like that is great."

Kyrie Irving tallied 27 points and nine assists for the Cavaliers, who lost their fifth straight contest. Tristan Thompson added 17 points and 12 rebounds.

Harrison Barnes made a running bank shot to tie the game at 104 with 1:55 left in overtime. Irving then missed a pair of layups, sandwiched between a blocked shot from Green on Thompson.

Iguodala then passed to a cutting Green, who threw down the emphatic go-ahead dunk with 59.7 seconds left.

Jarrett Jack and Dion Waiters each missed a jump shots for the Cavs before Curry secured the victory.

The Cavaliers led by as many as 17 points in the first half and took a 64-55 margin into the break. Waiters drained a step-back jumper in the final minute of the third to give the hosts an 84-82 edge going to the fourth.

Green canned a go-ahead 3-pointer with 45.9 seconds left, but Irving came back with a 3-point jumper with 9.5 ticks left to force overtime. Curry missed running shot in the lane in the closing seconds of regulation.

"As the game went along we thought we were getting a little tired," Cavs coach Mike Brown said. "We did not have the some pop or pace that we had in the first half."
