OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Stephen Curry scored 25 of his 31 points in the first half, David Lee finished with 24 points and 13 rebounds and the Golden State Warriors coasted past the ailing Los Angeles Clippers 115-94 on Wednesday night.
Harrison Barnes had 13 points and nine rebounds, and Curry added eight assists and six rebounds to pace Golden State's 26-8 spurt to start the game. The Warriors handed the Pacific Division-leading Clippers their second loss in two nights after winning a franchise-record 17 straight games.
Jamal Crawford scored 24 points off the bench and Chris Paul had 23 points and six rebounds for the Clippers, playing with heavy hearts after learning of the death of owner Donald Sterling's son earlier in the day. Starting small forward Caron Butler also wasn't with Los Angeles because of personal reasons.
