Hornets stun Curry, Warriors

LOS ANGELES (AFP) — P.J Washington scored 31 points, including six in overtime, as the Charlotte Hornets beat reigning National Basketball Association champion Golden State, 120-113, as Stephen Curry’s hometown heroics didn’t pan out.

The Oklahoma City Thunder also won in overtime, edging the Mavericks in Dallas, 117-111.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the Thunder with 38 points, six rebounds and nine assists.

Dallas star Luka Doncic had a triple-double of 31 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists, but the Mavs squandered a 16-point lead in the final five minutes of regulation.

It was also close in Utah, where three-point shots by Kelly Olynyk and Malik Beasley put the Jazz up, 124-120, with 23 seconds remaining.

Dillon Brooks nailed a three-pointer for Memphis with 15.6 seconds left, but the Grizzlies — playing without star Ja Morant — wouldn’t get another shot and Utah won, 124-123.

At Charlotte, Gordon Hayward scored 23 points and Kelly Oubre added 18 for the Hornets, who once again spoiled Curry’s trip to the city where he played high school basketball and his father, Dell Curry, starred for the Hornets.

The Warriors haven’t won in Charlotte since February of 2019, and the Hornets kept that streak alive despite the absence of injured LaMelo Ball and Terry Rozier.
