OAKLAND, California (AP) -- Stephen Curry had 32 points and 12 assists and Draymond Green got his first career triple-double as the Golden State Warriors rolled past the Toronto Raptors 126-105 on Friday in a matchup of the NBA's two conference leaders.

Green finished with 16 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds, and three others scored in double digits to help the NBA-best Warriors (26-5) wear down the Raptors (24-9) in the second half. Golden State started the third quarter on a 23-5 run.

Toronto's loss allowed Atlanta to move into first in the Eastern Conference.

Greivis Vasquez scored 25 points, and Kyle Lowry had 22 points and eight assists for the Raptors, who lost consecutive road games for the first time this season. Toronto fell to 2-3 on its six-game trip, which ends at Phoenix on Sunday.

In other games, Rajon Rondo had a season-high 29 points to lead Dallas past the Celtics 119-101 in his return to Boston, Oklahoma City reached .500 for the first time this season with a 109-102 win over Washington, and surging Atlanta beat Utah 98-92 for its 19th win in the last 22 games.

In Boston, Rondo had a career-high five 3-pointers and also finished with six rebounds and five assists in his first game at TD Garden in an opponent's uniform. The rebuilding Celtics traded the four-time All-Star to Dallas last month.

"Obviously, it was a special day," Rondo said. "I'm emotionally tired. I'm physically tired, and I'm drained."

Monta Ellis scored 22 points, Dirk Nowitzki had 17 and Tyson Chandler collected 16 rebounds to help the Mavericks to their fourth consecutive victory.

Kevin Durant scored 34 points to help Oklahoma City get the win and improve to 17-17 on the season. The Thunder started the season 3-12 with Durant sidelined by an injury.

Durant was 12 for 18 from the field in just 32 minutes, including a 4-for-7 performance from 3-point range. Russell Westbrook had 22 points and six assists for the Thunder.

Bradley Beal had 21 points, 10 rebounds and six assists for Washington, which has lost two in a row.

Atlanta (24-8) got its third straight win overall and sixth consecutive win over a Western Conference opponent.

Jeff Teague scored 25 points, Paul Millsap had 15 points and 11 rebounds, and Al Horford scored 13 points for the Hawks.

Elsewhere, Kevin Love scored 27 points and Kyrie Irving had 23 as Cleveland ended a three-game losing streak with a 91-87 win over Charlotte.

Tristan Thompson added 14 points and 14 rebounds as the Cavaliers won their first game since announcing LeBron James would miss two weeks with knee and back strains.

New Orleans routed Houston 111-83, led by Ryan Anderson's 22 points and Tyreke Evans' 21. Omer Asik grabbed 11 rebounds, and Anthony Davis accounted for three of the Pelicans' eight blocked shots.

Memphis' Mike Conley had 19 points and nine assists and Marc Gasol scored 18 points as the Grizzlies edged the Lakers 109-106. It was Memphis' ninth win over the Lakers in 11 meetings and fifth in a row.

The New York Knicks' losing streak reached 10 games, meanwhile, with a 97-81 loss to Detroit. Brandon Jennings scored 29 points for the Pistons, while J.R. Smith led the Knicks (5-30) with 22.

Brooklyn earned its third straight victory with a 100-98 win over Orlando, Phoenix struggled early against NBA-worst Philadelphia before pulling away for a 112-96 win, and Indiana topped Milwaukee 94-91.
