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.

Lee recorded at least 20 points and 10 rebounds in each game of the road trip. … Golden State rookie C Festus Ezeli (right knee) was held out of the lineup, giving Andris Biedrins a rare start. … Hawks reserves Louis Williams (16 points) and Ivan Johnson (15) each reached double figures off the bench. … Curry was hit with a technical foul for hanging on the rim after his fourth-quarter dunk.
