Recap


Warriors 115, Bobcats 100:
David Lee recorded his third career triple-double with 23 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists as Golden State handed visiting Charlotte its 14th straight loss.

Stephen Curry hit a career-high eight 3-pointers en route to 27 points and Klay Thompson scored 20 for the Warriors, who have won 11 of their last 14 games.

Gerald Henderson scored 23 points and Ramon Sessions added 17 off the bench for the Bobcats. Bismack Biyombo chipped in 12 points and 14 rebounds for Charlotte, which endured slides of 16 and 23 games last season.

Golden State closed the first quarter with a 14-3 burst to take the lead and never trailed again. Lee started the surge with a three-point play and Curry buried a 3-pointer.

The Bobcats drew within a point in the second, but again the Warriors closed the quarter strong, getting another 3-pointer from Curry to take a 58-49 edge into the break. It would stretch to 89-76 entering the fourth quarter.

Back-to-back 3-pointers from Curry during an 10-0 burst in the final period pushed it to 113-92 with 3:38 left and allowed Golden State to empty the bench. The Warriors ended up hitting 14 of 27 3-point attempts and shooting 51.8 percent from the field.

GAME NOTEBOOK:
Curry, who made seven 3-pointers in a loss at Sacramento on Wednesday, became the first player in franchise history to hit at least seven from beyond the arc in back-to-back games. … Carl Landry and Draymond Green each scored 11 points off the bench for Golden State. … Charlotte will try to snap its slide when it visits Denver on Saturday.
