Golden State Warriors 113, New Orleans Pelicans 109
NEW ORLEANS -- Stephen Curry scored a team-high 30 points, including a 15-foot jumper from the left baseline and a stop-and-scoop layup in the final three minutes, and Draymond Green made a key strip of Anthony Davis in the final three seconds to lift the Golden State Warriors to a 113-109 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night at the Smoothie King Center.
The Pelicans trailed 111-108 with 13.4 seconds left when the Warriors intentionally fouled Jrue Holiday in the backcourt. Holiday made the first free throw but missed the second, and Pelicans guard E'Twaun Moore came up with the loose ball on the miss.
The Pelicans fed the ball into Davis, who was getting ready to make his move 15 feet from the basket. But Green, playing aggressive defense, slapped the ball from Davis with his right hand and forced a turnover.
The Warriors also got 12 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists from Green for his first triple-double of the season. Kevin Durant scored 27 points as Golden State finished a 4-1 road trip. Davis led the Pelicans with 28 points.

On a night when Cleveland was without guard Kyrie Irving (rest), J.R. Smith broke out of a deep shooting slump and filled in admirably with six 3-pointers and 23 points.
