Keifer Sykes, getting an extended opportunity with Indiana's starting backcourt out of action, contributed five points to a 10-0 burst in overtime that allowed the short-handed Pacers to shock the Golden State Warriors 121-117 on Thursday night in San Francisco.

After a Justin Holiday 3-pointer with six seconds remaining in regulation forced the extra session, the Pacers prevailed despite the absence of regular starters Domantas Sabonis, Malcolm Brogdon, Caris LeVert and Myles Turner.

Rookie Chris Duarte had a team-high 27 points for Indiana, which had seven players score in double figures.

Stephen Curry produced 39 points and eight for the Warriors. He shot 6-for-16 on 3-point attempts, but his teammates combined to go just 3-for-26 from long distance.

Valanciunas posted his 31st double-double to help the Pelicans survive getting outrebounded 48-35. Josh Hart added 17, but Brandon Ingram was held to 15 and appeared to tweak his ankle in the second half.

Mitchell Robinson totalled 17 points and 15 boards for the Knicks, who got little else from their starters en route to a third straight loss.
