loss in one of two remaining games if the Eagl

  • Dallas, TX (SportsNetwork. Walt Tkaczuk Jersey .com) - A rare Saturday matinee and a trip to American Airlines Center wasnt enough to slow down the best team in basketball. Three Warriors scored 20-plus points for the first time this season and Golden State extended its franchise-best win streak to 15 with a wire-to-wire 105-98 road victory over the Dallas Mavericks. Steph Curry scored a game-high 29 points, Klay Thompson had 25 and Draymond Green netted 20 for the Warriors, who last had three players drop 20 points or more on April 1, 2013, in a 122-120 win over the Mavs. 15 wins in a row, its hard to fathom, said Thompson. This is a special group. The Warriors improved to 20-2 on the season. They havent lost since Nov. 11. Monta Ellis led Dallas with 24 points and Dirk Nowitzki had 23. Richard Jefferson, in his first start of the season, added 13 points and 13 rebounds. I love Jefferson, I love the way he plays, offered Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle. He plays with a lot of force. The 3s were falling early for Golden State. Thompson hit a pair and Curry drained a stepback to help the Warriors to a 15-5 lead less than four minutes in. The lead kept growing, with Curry following his deep 3 with a no-look pass to Shaun Livingston for a layup that pushed the spread to 30-13. Curry put the finishing touches on a dominant first quarter with an acrobatic lefty layup in transition and a corner 3 with under a minute to play. His stepback 3-point try at the buzzer missed short, but he still dropped 13 and the Warriors led 39-18. Weve got to be all there from the very beginning until the very end, said Carlisle. The first quarter did us in. The lead grew to 28 before a mini rally late in the half had Dallas within 22, 66-44, at halftime. An 11-1 Dallas run made things interesting early in the third. Tyson Chandlers alley-oop from Ellis near the midpoint of the period had Dallas within 13 before a 3 1/2 minute scoring drought plagued the hosts. Green made five free throws and Curry got a runner to fall as Golden State restored its 20-point lead. The Warriors went cold late in the game, and Brandan Wright scored seven of Dallas points during a 11-0 run that made it 100-92. After Thompson made two free throws, Ellis hit a 3 and Dallas was within seven. But it was too little too late. Currys free throws with 39 seconds left proceeded a Jae Crowder missed 3-pointer, as the Warriors held on.

These are some important games that weve got coming up, and I know how important they are. We know how important they are.The NFC East-leading Cowboys (10-4) can wrap up a playoff berth if they beat the Colts (10-4) and Philadelphia loses to Washington. But Dallas could miss the post-season with a loss in one of two remaining games if the Eagles beat the Redskins and New York Giants.Murray, injured late in last weeks win at Philadelphia that gave the Cowboys the division lead, has 1,687 yards rushing and needs 87 to break all-time NFL rushing leader Emmitt Smiths franchise record of 1,773.Rookie right guard Zack Martin didnt practice all week because of an ankle injury, but Jones was optimistic about him playing.With what we did yesterday in practice, Murray and Martin, Im pretty positive about haviing the ability to play them and to getting that decision, Jones said. Phil Esposito Jersey.

But now he has a 22-game starting streak, easily the longest of his career.Im competitive, very competitive person, and I want to help this team out as much as I can, said Murray, who has tied Smiths franchise record with 11 100-yard games this season. Whatever that portrays me doing come Sunday, then well see from there.___Online:AP NFL website: and Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at ' ' '
