MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Draymond Green scored on a tip-in in with one minute left, and the Golden State Warriors rallied from 10 points down early in the fourth quarter and beat the Memphis Grizzlies 100-99 on Saturday night to match at least one NBA record held by the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls.

Golden State now has 33 road wins, tying those Bulls who went 33-8 away from Chicago. The Warriors (71-9) visit the Spurs on Sunday night, and their next win will tie the Bulls’ NBA single-season record of 72 victories – but the Warriors have lost 33 straight in San Antonio.

Green finished with 23 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, Klay Thompson had 20 points, Stephen Curry 17 and Harrison Barnes 14 for the Warriors.

Memphis’ Lance Stephenson missed two shots in the final seconds on a drive and again on a flip toward the basket.
