But Atlanta answered with five straight to regain the lead. The Warriors got a defensive stop with 3.2 seconds to play trailing 100-98.

Golden State called a timeout, and Iguodala inbounded to Curry. He was draped and tossed back to Iguodala, who calmly knocked down the 3 to win it.

The Warriors actually started the game hot and hit seven of their first eight shots, with Klay Thompson doing most of the damage. He hit his first four, including three 3-pointers. Even after both teams hit a lull, Golden State had a seven-point lead.

But the Warriors iced up and made only three of their next 17 shots and finished the first quarter shooting 40 percent. They still held a 24-21 lead.

Golden State stuck with its reserve lineup for the first 3½ minutes of the second quarter and fell behind 31-28. The starters returned and turn it into a four-point lead for the Warriors, but the Hawks tied it up at 46 by halftime.
