LOS ANGELES (AP):

J.J. Redick scored six points in the final 55 seconds to rally the Los Angeles Clippers to a 94-92 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday night, ending a two-game losing streak.

Blake Griffin had 24 points and 12 rebounds and DeAndre Jordan added 13 points and 12 rebounds for the Clippers during a back-and-forth game in which neither team led by more than eight points.

Redick finished with 16 points, but his biggest contributions came when he hit a go-ahead three-pointer and then got fouled by Tony Allen and made all three free throws to put the Clippers ahead 90-86.

Zach Randolph scored 26 points to lead the Grizzlies, who dropped their third in a row. Marc Gasol added 18 points and Mike Conley had 16.

Minnesota's Andrew Wiggins equalled his career high with 33 points and Karl-Anthony Towns added 17 as Minnesota blew a 34-point lead before ending Atlanta's seven-game winning streak with a 117-107 win over the Hawks.

Atlanta never led until Paul Millsap's runner with 3:26 remaining made it 107-106, but Wiggins scored the next seven points to prevent one of the biggest collapses in NBA history.

Jeff Teague finished with 24 points and Millsap had 22 for the Hawks.

 

Curry scores 22

 

In Oakland, California, Stephen Curry overcame his worst shooting night of the season to score 22 points as the Golden State Warriors beat the Detroit Pistons 109-95 to remain the NBA's only undefeated team.

Curry missed five of his first seven shots and finished seven of 18 from the floor while being held under 30 points for only the third time this season. The reigning MVP also had five assists and five rebounds.

Klay Thompson added 24 points, Harrison Barnes had 12, Andre Iguodala scored 13 and Leandro Barbosa had 10, including five straight to help the Warriors pull away in the fourth quarter.

The Chicago Bulls defeated the winless Philadelphia 76ers 111-88 after Nikola Mirotic had 20 points and 10 rebounds and Pau Gasol scored 16 points.

The Bulls played without Joakim Noah and still cruised to a 15-point lead in the first quarter. They eventually stretched the lead to 26 points. Doug McDermott scored 18 points and Derrick Rose had 12.

In other games, J.J. Hickson scored 19 points and rookie Emmanuel Mudiay hit two game-sealing free throws with 18.3 seconds remaining to help the Denver Nuggets beat the Portland Trail Blazers 108-104, the San Antonio Spurs downed the Sacramento Kings 106-88 and the Indiana Pacers were 97-84 winners over the Orlando Magic.
