Lee lifts Warriors past Raptors

Associated Press  |  Last updated January 28, 2013
David Lee had 21 points and 12 rebounds, Stephen Curry scored 17 points before leaving with an injury, and the Golden State Warriors beat the Toronto Raptors 114-102 on Monday night. Klay Thompson scored 19 points, Carl Landry had six of his 12 points in the fourth quarter and Andrew Bogut returned from an injury to also score 12 as the Warriors earned their first victory in four games against Eastern Conference opponents this month. Harrison Barnes and Jarrett Jack each scored 14 for Golden State, which wraps up a four-game road trip at Cleveland on Tuesday. Aaron Gray had a career-high 22 points and 10 rebounds, DeMar DeRozan scored 21 points and Ed Davis had 12 for the Raptors, who have lost seven of nine. Alan Anderson, Jose Calderon and Terrence Ross each scored 11 for Toronto. Up by two points to begin the fourth, the Warriors pulled away with a 12-3 run as Toronto missed 10 of its first 11 field goal attempts of the quarter. Bogut started for Golden State after missing 38 games due to soreness in his surgically repaired left ankle. He had eight rebounds and four blocks in 23 minutes. But not all the injury news was good for the Warriors. Curry twisted his injured right ankle in the third quarter when he tripped and fell after colliding with Davis while driving. He did not return. Gray, back in the Raptors' starting lineup to defend Bogut, scored a season-high 10 points in the first as the Raptors led 28-25 after one. Anderson came off the bench to score 11 points for Toronto in the second but Thompson had nine for the Warriors, including a tying 3-pointer with 1:54 left in the half. Another jumper by Thompson briefly gave Golden State the lead, but two free throws by DeRozan made it 52-all at the half. Golden State led 71-61 with 6:18 left in the third but back-to-back 3s by Calderon sparked a 16-4 run to put Toronto up two less than four minutes later. The Warriors reclaimed the lead thanks to consecutive baskets by Jack, and took a narrow 84-82 edge into the fourth. NOTES: Bogut last played Nov. 7 against Cleveland. ... Lee has an NBA-high 18 games with at least 20 points and 10 rebounds. ... All five Golden State starters reached double figures in scoring, the first time that's happened this season. ... Curry came in averaging 30.3 points in four career games against the Raptors, his highest average against any opponent. ... Gray's previous high was 19, set with Chicago against Toronto on Apr. 16, 2008. ... Raptors G Kyle Lowry (back spasms) did not dress. ... Toronto F Landry Fields left at halftime suffering from flulike symptoms.
