Curry responded with a 3-pointer with 39.3 seconds left and a three-point play 10.7 seconds later to get Golden State within 131-130, but Maxi Kleber clinched Dallas' second win in its last nine games with a 3-pointer for a four-point advantage with 6.3 seconds to go. Damion Lee's tip-in with seven-tenths of a second completed the scoring.
