Recap


David Lee scored 13 of his game-high 29 points in the fourth quarter and the Golden State Warriors won their second straight on the road with a 105-95 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday.

With the game tied at 85, Lee took over by scoring 11 of the Warriors’ next 14 points. His short jumper with 1:55 left put Golden State up 99-93 over weary Cleveland, which was playing on the second night of a back-to-back and its first home game following a seven-game road trip.

Antawn Jamison scored 19 points and rookie Kyrie Irving had 18 points, eight rebounds and five assists for the Cavaliers, who had 23 turnovers, six by Irving.

The Warriors’ reserves combined for 50 points, led by Nate Robinson (17), Klay Thompson (14) and Brandon Rush (14).

Leading scorer Monta Ellis was held to only 10 points, then left the game in the final minute after an inadvertent elbow from Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao bloodied his nose.

Varejao had 10 points and 13 rebounds, his eighth consecutive game with 10 or more rebounds.
