Article Summary:

Tatum scored 44 points – the second-highest total in his career – and Kemba Walker made a 3-pointer with 24 seconds left to help Boston beat the Golden State Warriors 119-114 on Saturday night.

“It took everything,” said Walker, who scored 26 points and grabbed his eighth rebound after Golden State’s last shot and bounced the ball vigorously in celebration as the clock ran out.

Back-to-back 3-pointers from Green and Curry gave the Warriors a 109-103 lead in the final minutes before Walker hit a pair of free throws and Tatum hit a 3-pointer to make it a one-point game.

RUNNING TIME

Curry had eight straight Warriors points – including a desperation lefty hook shot with one foot on the 3-point line, while drawing a foul – to help them open a 66-50 lead with just under 2 minutes remaining in the second quarter.
