March 5 (The Sports Xchange) - Highlights of Sunday's National Basketball Association games:

Warriors 112, Knicks 105

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for 60 points, leading Golden State to victory over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.

Curry poured in 31 points and Thompson added 29 points, marking the 42d time in their careers they have both scored at least 25 or more points in a game and the seventh time this season.

Derrick Rose led the Knicks (25-38) with 28 points and Kristaps Porzingis contributed 24 points and 15 rebounds.

The Warriors (51-11) avoided a three-game losing streak. A brief 8-2 run sealed the win, putting Golden State ahead 110-101 with 1:09 left.

Pacers 97, Hawks 96

Glenn Robinson III made a 3-pointer with 0.6 seconds left to help Indiana overcome a six-point deficit with less than two minutes left and stun Atlanta.

The Pacers were led by Paul George with 34 points, his 11th game of 30 or more this season. George was 6-for-9 on 3-pointers. Indiana also got 16 points, four rebounds and six assists from Jeff Teague and 13 points from C.J. Miles.

The Hawks were led in scoring by Tim Hardaway Jr., who had four 3-pointers and scored 24, and Paul Millsap, who had 23 points and 10 rebounds.

Jazz 110, Kings 109 (overtime)

Rudy Gobert finished with 24 rebounds, the last one a tip on a missed shot as time expired in overtime, and Utah stunned Sacramento.

Jazz guard George Hill tried to score on a dribble drive into the lane. Hill's floater came up short, but Gobert reached up just outside the basket cylinder and tipped it in.

Referees originally ruled goaltending but reversed the decision after a replay review.

Suns 109, Celtics 106

Eric Bledsoe had 28 points and rookie Tyler Ulis had a career-high 20 points, including a 3-pointer as time expired, in a Phoenix victory over Boston.

The Suns (21-42) moved to 13-9 against the Eastern Conference.

Wizards 115, Magic 114

Bojan Bogdanovic scored 27 points and made 8-of-10 3-pointers, including two in the final 1:06, as Washington rallied past Orlando.
