BOSTON (AP) — Stephen Curry scored 37 points, making four straight free throws to clinch it in the final seconds and the Golden State Warriors erased a 26-point deficit to beat the Boston Celtics 106-101 on Sunday night.

Golden State won for the seventh time in nine tries and snapped Boston’s three-game winning streak. Klay Thompson scored 20 for the Warriors, Harrison Barnes had 17 and Draymond Green scored 11 of his 14 points in the fourth quarter.

Isaiah Thomas scored 20 points off the bench for Boston. Jae Crowder had a career-high 17 rebounds to go with his nine points, but his 3-pointer with a chance to give Boston the lead with under a minute left rolled around the rim and out.
