Golden State have scored a last-second 124-123 NBA victory over Utah, despite Australian Joe Ingles' starring role for the Jazz at home with 27 points including seven three-pointers.

Jonas Jerebko crashed the basket and tipped in a shot against his former team with 0.3 seconds remaining on Friday night to deny Utah.

Kevin Durant, with 38 points, missed a running jumper. But Jerebko, let go by Utah as a free agent after last season and who was just subbed in, charged in from the right for the game-winning put-back.

The Jazz had taken their last lead when Jae Crowder scored off his own miss with 51.4 seconds left in the game.

Stephen Curry had 31 points and Draymond Green tallied 14 , nine rebounds and six assists, while Donovan Mitchell added 19 points for the Jazz , but missed all six fourth-quarter attempts.

Ingles' Australian teammate Dante Exum gave the Jazz a 111-101 advantage with 8:53 left in the game. The Warriors responded with inspired defence to go on a 13-0 run.

After the Warriors whittled their 16-point deficit down to three, Ingles beat the third-quarter buzzer with a running, double-pump three-pointer from 12 metres.

Danilo Gallinari and Tobias Harris scored 26 points each as the LA Clippers rallied late to beat Oklahoma City 108-92 for their first win of the season , as the Thunder again played without injured Russell Westbrook.

Jimmy Butler scored 33 points to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves past the Cleveland Cavaliers 131-123.

Butler made 10 of 12 field goals and 12 of 12 free throws, with seven rebounds, four steals and three assists to help the Timberwolves (1-1) hold off a late charge by Kevin Love and the LeBron James-less Cavaliers.

Love had 25 points, 19 rebounds and seven assists against his former team but the Cavaliers (0-2) have a lot of work to do to contend again after James bolted for the LA Lakers.

Kemba Walker scored 26 points in the first three quarters as the Charlotte Hornets continued their dominance of Orlando Magic with a 120-88 victory.

Charlotte have beaten Orlando 12-straight times since 2015, a franchise record against any opponent.

Kawhi Leonard had 31 points and 10 rebounds, Serge Ibaka added 21 points and the Toronto Raptors beat the Boston Celtics 113-101.

Caris LeVert's driving lay-up with a second left gave him a career-high 28 points and the Brooklyn Nets their first victory of the season, 107-105 over the New York Knicks.

The pace-pushing New Orleans Pelicans downed the Sacramento Kings 149-129, the Memphis Grizzlies beat the visiting Atlanta Hawks 131-117 and Matthew Dellavedova's Milwaukee Bucks beat the Indiana Pacers 118-101.
