Keith Firmin brings you The Wrap-Up on all of last night’s NBA games including two of the league’s best point guards going head-to-head and Kevin Durant being unstoppable.
Golden State @ Cleveland
Steph Curry’s near triple-double was enough to give the Warriors the win over the Cavaliers, 108-104. The game needed an extra period – Cleveland’s fifth OT game of the season – to decide the winner after Kyrie Irving hit a huge 3 to tie the game at 99 each and Steph Curry missed the floater, before the Warriors edged past the Cavs in overtime. Curry finished with 29 points, 11 assists and nine rebounds.
Kyrie and Curry go at it:
