Twelve unanswered points to open the fourth quarter gave the Golden State Warriors a cushion over the visiting Dallas Mavericks, but a block by Andrew Bogut in the game's final seconds could be credited for Golden State's win.
The Mavs chipped away at Golden State's 13-point lead in the fourth, and O.J. Mayo had a chance to tie things up with less than a minute to play. However, he converted only the first of two free throws, and his team's comeback stalled there. Dallas never led in the game after tying it at 48-all with 2:57 remaining in the first half.
Golden State's Klay Thompson got the start for the injured Stephen Curry and responded with 27 points on 18 attempts and a pair of free throws made. David Lee just missed out on a triple-double with 15 points, 20 rebounds and nine assists. Jack added 13 points in the win.
