CLEVELAND (AP) - Klay Thompson scored a career-high 32 points and the short-handed Golden State Warriors beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-95 on Tuesday night.
The Warriors were missing three starters - guard Stephen Curry (ankle), center Andrew Bogut (ankle) and forward Harrison Barnes (knee). Also, Carl Landry, one of the first players off Golden State's bench, didn't play because of a shoulder injury.
Still, Golden State shot 54 percent and was 11 for 16 on 3-pointers, hitting the first nine from beyond the arc. Golden State took control in the second quarter and built a 16-point lead in the second half.
Jarrett Jack, starting at point guard in place of Curry, had 26 points and 12 assists, and David Lee had 20 points and 13 rebounds.
Tristan Thompson had 18 points and 11 rebounds for Cleveland, and Dion Waiters also scored 18 points.
