NBA roundup: Golden State Warriors, Los Angeles Clippers still unbeaten

Sports Mole rounds up all the action from Saturday's games in the NBA.

The Golden State Warriors maintained their 100% start to the 2015-16 NBA season with a comfortable win over the New Orleans Pelicans.

Last season's league MVP, Stephen Curry, took the game away from the hosts in the third quarter, adding 28 of his 53 points just after the break, while the Pelicans managed just 26 in the same 12-minute period, allowing him to sit out the fourth as the Warriors' reserves wrapped up the victory.

The Los Angeles Clippers also improved to 3-0 for the first time in eight seasons with a win over the Sacramento Kings at the Staples Center.

The visitors started well, leading by seven at the end of the first quarter, but Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan all found the basket in the second to make sure the home side were ahead at half time, allowing Griffin to increase to lead further in the second half on his way to a 37-point game.

Carmelo Anthony led the New York Knicks to a win over the Washington Wizards with a 37-point performance in the Wizards' first home game of the season.

Washington led inside the final five minutes as Bradley Beal and John Wall made a string of shots, but five free throws and a jump shot from Anthony in the last 90 seconds sealed the win for the visiting side.

The Indiana Pacers' wait for their first win of the season continues after the Utah Jazz cruised to victory at Bankers Life Fieldhouse with a dominant second-half performance.

The sides were close at half time, but Derrick Favors led the third-quarter charge for the Jazz, setting them up for their second win of the season.

The Phoenix Suns beat the Portland Trail Blazers for the second night in a row as Eric Bledsoe and Brandon Knight combined for 60 points in the Suns' first road game of the season.

Damian Lillard kept the sides close heading into the fourth quarter, but Bledsoe and Knight added 15 points in the final five minutes to secure the win for the Suns.

The Brooklyn Nets' slow start to the season continued as they were beaten by the Memphis Grizzlies, despite closing the gap in the final seconds.

Mike Conley helped the home side open up a 16-point lead early in the fourth quarter, but Jarrett Jack got Brooklyn within six inside the last minute, allowing Memphis to hold on.

Results in full: Utah Jazz 97-76 Indiana Pacers, New York Knicks 117-110 Washington Wizards, Golden State Warriors 134-120 New Orleans Pelicans, Brooklyn Nets 91-101 Memphis Grizzlies, Phoenix Suns 101-90 Portland Trail Blazers, Sacramento 109-114 Los Angeles Clippers
