PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Harrison Barnes hit a 3-pointer with 0.2 seconds remaining and the Golden State Warriors escaped with a 108-105 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday.

Klay Thompson had 32 points and Stephen Curry scored 23 points for the Warriors, who nearly blew a 24-point second-half lead. Draymond Green added 10 points and 13 rebounds for Golden State, which opened a three-game road trip with their sixth straight victory while matching the NBA's best start through 47 games.

They tied the 1966-67 76ers, who also won 43 of their first 47.

Isaiah Canaan had 18 points to lead the 76ers, who dropped to 7-41 but nearly pulled off the most improbable victory of the NBA season.


This story has been corrected to show official scoring change of final shot to 0.2 seconds remaining, not 0.4.
