(AP) — The Golden State Warriors’ team-record winning streak has come to an end.

The Warriors had won 16 straight before Marc Gasol (gah-SAHL’) scored 24 points to lead Memphis past Golden State 105-98. Zach Randolph had 17 points and 10 rebounds for the Grizzlies, who blew most of a 14-point lead before earning their fifth consecutive win.

Warriors guard Stephen Curry missed back-to-back 3-pointers in the final 10 seconds. He had 19 points on 9-of-25 shooting, including a 1-for-10 night from beyond the arc.

Also in the NBA:

— Oklahoma picked up its seventh straight win as Russell Westbrook pumped in 32 points and Kevin Durant added 26 in the Thunder’s 104-92 win at Sacramento. The Thunder opened on a 9-0 run and led by 15 in the first quarter as they spoiled Ty Corbin’s debut as the Kings’ head coach.

— John Wall had 21 points and equaled a career high with 17 assists as Washington picked up its fifth straight win, beating Minnesota 109-95. Rasual (rah-SOOL’) Butler had 23 points for Washington, which is 18-6 and a half-game off the Eastern Conference lead after going 11-13 through 24 games last year.
