Recap


Stephen Curry scored a season-high 32 points and David Lee had 26 to help the Golden State Warriors beat the Portland Trail Blazers 101-93 on Wednesday.

Brandon Rush hit three 3-pointers off the bench for 14 points as the Warriors became the last team in the NBA to beat a conference opponent. They entered 0-6 against the West.

Curry added seven assists, six rebounds and four steals in his third game since returning from a troublesome ankle injury.

LaMarcus Aldridge had 18 points to lead the weary Blazers, who were playing their third game in as many nights. Jamal Crawford added 16 points and Wesley Matthews 15.

Dorell Wright capped an 8-0 spurt with a dunk late in the third to give the Warriors a 77-70 edge. They went ahead by 10 on three consecutive jumpers by Lee to start the fourth.

The Blazers followed with seven straight points, including Crawford’s 3-pointer to pull within 85-82. That’s as close as they would get the rest of the way, with Lee’s jumper extending the lead to 97-90 with 1:36 remaining.

Golden State was able to overcome a rare quiet outing from Monta Ellis, who had just four points on two of nine shooting. He did dish out 12 assists.
