Recap

Warriors 115, Hawks 93: David Lee scored 20 points on 10-of-14 shooting and added 11 rebounds as visiting Golden State sprinted past Atlanta.

Stephen Curry came up two rebounds shy of a triple-double with 18 points and 11 assists while Harrison Barnes and Carl Landry scored 19 apiece for the Warriors, who finished up their season-long seven-game road trip with a 6-1 mark.

Al Horford scored 17 points but Josh Smith was held to a season-low three on 1-of-12 shooting for the Hawks, who lost for just the second time in their last seven games.

It was tied at the end of the first quarter but Golden State used a 16-5 burst at the start of the second to take a double-digit lead. Barnes hit a pair of 3-pointers and totaled 10 points during the spurt.

The Warriors held a 13-point lead at the break and stretched it to 20 on Barnes’ 3-pointer with 6:09 left in the third quarter. The rookie swingman came into the contest shooting 29 percent on the road trip but went 8-for-14 against the Hawks, including 3-of-4 from beyond the arc.

Golden State led by as much as 88-61 late in the third and refused to let Atlanta make a run. Curry’s steal and transition dunk with 7:18 left in the game kept the lead over 20 and allowed the Warriors to empty the bench.
