LAST TIME OUT
David Lee scored 13 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter as the Warriors beat the Cavaliers 105-95 for their second-straight road victory. Golden State’s bench unit, sparked by Nate Robinson’s 17 points and 10 assists, combined for 50 points and Andris Biedrins (11 rebounds, 1 block) helped lead a defensive unit that limited Cleveland to just eight points over the final nine minutes of the game. Brandon Rush and Klay Thompson combined for 6-for-7 shooting on 3-pointers for the Warriors, who close out their road trip on Wednesday in New Jersey. FULL GAME RECAP
WARRIORS VS. NETS
The Warriors have won five of their last six games against the Nets, but have yet to play them with Deron Williams in uniform. New Jersey will again be shorthanded on Wednesday, as Brook Lopez is out with a broken bone in his right foot. The Warriors will be looking for their third-straight win to close out their road trip and the Nets, losers of five of their last six, will be looking to turn things around in the first of three-straight games at home.
STILL LEE-DING THE WAY
Warriors forward David Lee continues to play the best basketball of his Warriors career. His 29-point game against the Cavaliers marked his fifth-straight game with at least 20 points. During that stretch he has averaged 24.6 points on 64.3 percent shooting, 11.4 rebounds and 3.2 assists.DUB THE VOTE
PICKING UP THE PACE
The Warriors have picked up the pace in their last five games, averaging 104.8 points while reaching the century mark in four of their last five. The Warriors failed to reach 100 points in each of the first eight games to start the season, averaging just 89.9 points during that stretch. Production from the second unit has certainly contributed to this boom in scoring, as the team has had three double-digit scorers come off the bench in each of the last two games.
