Behind Looney, Porter Jr., Moody aid Warriors’ comeback

When the Warriors came all the way back from a 19-point deficit to take a fourth quarter lead on Friday against the Mavericks at the Chase Center, the go-ahead 3-point shot came from an unlikely source.

Steph Curry, Jordan Poole and Klay Thompson all made key 3-pointers to pull away from the Dallas Mavericks, but the basket that put Golden State ahead for the first time all night came from ninth-year veteran Otto Porter Jr.

In a game in which center Kevon Looney stole the spotlight for Golden State with a career-best 21 points and 12 rebounds in a 126-117 win over Dallas, two other role players, Porter and 19-year-old rookie Moses Moody, provided critical contributions to cap off a win that gave the Warriors a 2-0 series lead.
