Hawks top Cavs in double OT

Jeff Teague scored a career-high 34 points, including a 20-foot jumper at the buzzer in the second overtime, to give the Atlanta Hawks a 127-125 win over the Cavaliers on Thursday night in Cleveland.

Teague's fallaway jumper over Tristan Thompson bounced off the rim five times before falling through the net to give Atlanta the victory. Teague fell to the floor after shooting the ball and was mobbed by his teammates.

Teague's three-pointer with 4.9 seconds left tied the game at 108-all in the first overtime.

Kyrie Irving led Cleveland with 40 points, including 12 in the second OT.

Hawks center Al Horford, who scored two baskets late in regulation to tie the game, suffered an apparent shoulder injury in the first OT and didn't return.

Rockets 100, Grizzlies 92 - James Harden scored 27 points and Terrence Jones added 20 as Houston put away visiting Memphis (Zach Randolph, 23 points) at the Toyota Center.

League: Refs erred

The NBA said Thursday that its referees made a mistake when they ejected Los Angeles forward Blake Griffin in the Clippers' 105-103 loss at Golden State on Wednesday night.

Griffin was ejected for his second technical with 10:43 left after scuffling with Andrew Bogut, following Warriors forward Draymond Green to the showers after they got into it at the end of the third.

"After a league review of the Clippers-Warriors game, we have come to the conclusion that Blake Griffin should not have been ejected from the game," said Rod Thorn, the NBA's president of basketball operations.
