MILWAUKEE — David Lee scored 22 points, making his first 10 shots from the field, to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 101-80 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night.
Lee added 18 rebounds for the Warriors, who have won 10 consecutive games, the team's longest streak since its NBA-title season in 1975. Stephen Curry contributed 15 points for the Warriors despite connecting on just 5 of 18 shots. Klay Thompson also scored 15 points.
The Warriors, playing their sixth game of a seven-city road trip, led by just two at the half against the Bucks, who have the NBA's worst record.
Golden State broke open the game with a 23-7 run to start the third quarter, highlighted by a step-back 3-pointer from the corner by Curry.
Ersan Ilyasova had 20 points and Brandon Knight 18 for the Bucks.
