OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- David Lee scored 25 points, Nate Robinson added 21 and the Golden State Warriors beat the road-weary Dallas Mavericks 111-87 on Saturday night. Monta Ellis added 20 points and eight assists for the Warriors, who won their second straight from Dallas following a six-game losing streak. Klay Thompson had 13 points in the Warriors largest margin of victory this season. Dirk Nowitzki scored 22 points to lead the Mavericks, who lost their seventh straight on the road, including three in the past three nights. Jason Terry added 15 points and Rodrigue Beaubois had 12 as Dallas suffered its worst loss of the season. Stephen Curry, making his first start since returning from a tendon sprain in his right foot, added 10 points before leaving the game with 6:59 remaining to play in the third quarter with a mild sprain in his right ankle. Curry limped to the end of the bench and slammed his right hand into a chair, more out of frustration than pain, before taking a seat. His foot was re-taped and he remained on the bench. The Warriors never trailed in the game, taking a 20-point lead when Robinson made a pair of foul shots early in the final period. Ellis and Robinson combined for 25 points in the third quarter to help the Warriors carry an 83-66 advantage into the fourth. The Warriors got off to a much better start against the Mavericks than they did three days earlier against Memphis, when they fell behind by 17 points in the first quarter. Lee was 6 of 10 from the field and scored 13 of his points in the opening period to help the Warriors open an 11-point advantage. NOTES: Mavs G Jason Terry appeared in his 1,000th game, becoming the 17th active player to do so. ... Mavs C Brendan Haywood missed his fourth game with a sprained ankle. ... The Mavericks completed their first back-to-back-to-back games since April 20-22, 1999. ... Mavs G Jason Kidd was given the night off and was not in uniform. ... The Warriors recorded their ninth sellout of the season. ... Curry recorded a steal before leaving in the third quarter for career No. 300.
