OAKLAND, CA (AP) -
Kevin Durant had 25 points and 14 rebounds, Draymond Green blocked two shots in the final 43.4 seconds and the Golden State Warriors held off the Atlanta Hawks and their strong bench 105-100 on Monday night for a 12th straight victory.
Stephen Curry scored 25 points with four 3-pointers, and Klay Thompson added 20 points as Golden State's Big Three each reached 20 points for the second consecutive game.
The Warriors won their seventh straight home game and fifth in a row against Atlanta at Oracle Arena while welcoming back Green from a one-game absence while injured.
Durant knocked down a 3-pointer with 2:57 left in the third quarter that pulled Golden State to 76-73. Then, as the period wound down, he dribbled over midcourt and found Ian Clark for a long 3 to beat the buzzer and cut Atlanta's advantage to 81-80.
