OAKLAND, California—David Lee finished an assist short of a triple-double and Klay Thompson scored 27 points as the Golden State Warriors beat the Dallas Mavericks 100-97 Thursday.

Lee had 15 points, a season-high 20 rebounds and nine assists, while Jarrett Jack scored 13 points, including two free throws with 2 seconds left to help the Warriors win their third straight. Harrison Barnes also had 15 points.

O.J. Mayo scored 25 points to lead the Mavericks, who dropped their second straight game. Vince Carter added 22 points and Shawn Marion 18 as Dallas failed to reach 100 points for the first time in 10 games.

At Oklahoma City, an outburst aimed at his own team earned All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook a third-quarter benching and gave the Memphis Grizzlies a glimmer of hope before Oklahoma City closed out a 106-89 victory.

Just when the Thunder seemed to be firmly in control, Westbrook started sniping with his teammates after a possession when he posted up along the left side of the lane and eventually got called for a turnover when Jerryd Bayless stuck with him on defense for 5 seconds.

Westbrook then spiked the ball twice while gesturing toward Thabo Sefolosha and Durant that they needed to get open. He then hollered toward coach Scott Brooks on the bench.

Memphis followed his outburst with 10 straight points to make it a game again — with Westbrook getting an early hook during the stretch and heading down the tunnel toward the locker room.

He sat out about 8 minutes before Brooks put him back in to start the fourth quarter.
