DALLAS — Stephen Curry had a big finish in the fourth quarter to help Golden State force overtime.

When Dallas made it tougher for Curry to score, the fourth-year guard became a willing passer in overtime.

Curry scored 20 of his 31 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, and his assist on David Lee's go-ahead layup with 32.8 seconds left helped the Warriors beat the Mavericks 105-101 Monday night.

With the score tied at 99, the Mavs' defense collapsed on Curry in the lane, but he quickly shuffled a pass to an open Lee for the go-ahead basket.

That was the last of three assists Curry had in overtime.
