Without Curry, Warriors unable to end Grizzlies' dominance

OAKLAND — With Stephen Curry out of the lineup, the Memphis Grizzlies extended their winning streak against the Warriors to 11 games on Wednesday with an 88-81 victory in overtime at Oracle Arena.

Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 21 points, David Lee added 18 points and Harrison Barnes scored 16 points. Barnes joined the starting five in Curry's absence.

Warriors center Andrew Bogut grabbed a season-high 14 rebounds, recording his second double-double of the season with 12 points.

Andre Iguodala, who started at point guard with Curry and backup point guard Toney Douglas out, registered 14 assists while scoring seven points.

The Warriors (8-4) took a 44-34 lead into halftime by outrebounding the Grizzlies 21-18, and outscoring them 24-18 in the paint and 14-2 in second-chance points. But the Grizzles (7-5) took control of the game in the third quarter, opening the second half with a 17-4 run in the first six minutes.

The Warriors battled back in the fourth quarter as the teams swapped leads five times before heading into overtime tied 75-75.
