OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - David Lee had 19 points and 10 rebounds, Andrew Bogut grabbed 20 rebounds and the Golden State Warriors shook off a slow start to rout the depleted Los Angeles Lakers 102-83 Saturday night.
Stephen Curry scored 18 points and Klay Thompson added 17 points to help the Warriors pull away with a 26-8 spurt to start the third quarter. Golden State went ahead 83-70 early in the fourth to put the game out of reach.
Pau Gasol sat out with an upper respiratory infection for the Lakers, who already were missing Kobe Bryant (fractured left knee), Steve Nash (nerve root irritation in back), Steve Blake (torn ligament in right elbow) and Jordan Farmar (torn left hamstring).
Nick Young scored 20 points, and Chris Kaman had 17 rebounds and 10 points for the Lakers in a sloppy game by both teams.
