Stephen Curry had 31 points and seven assists, David Lee finished with 22 points and 12 rebounds and the Golden State Warriors outlasted the Oklahoma City Thunder 104-99 on Wednesday night.
On the eve of the announcement for All-Star reserves, Golden State's top two candidates made a lasting impression.
Curry matched Kevin Durant's spectacular scores all game, stole a pass from the Thunder's leading man in the final seconds and hit a pair of free throws to seal Golden State's third straight victory. Lee helped the Warriors outrebound Oklahoma City's lengthy frontline 40-39 and made some big plays late.
Durant had 33 points, nine assists and five rebounds, and Kevin Martin scored 16 points for the Thunder, who blew an eight-point lead in the fourth quarter a night after running away with a win at the Los Angeles Clippers. Oklahoma City had won seven of eight to move to the top of the NBA standings.
Once again, the surprising Warriors showed they are no fluke out West this season....
