Final Score: Golden State 93, New Orleans 72
New Orleans, LA (Sports Network) - Stephen Curry canned six 3-pointers en
route to a game-high 30 points and the Golden State Warriors dominated the
fourth quarter to take a 93-72 victory against the New Orleans Hornets.
The Warriors, who recently had lost nine of their last 10 road games, have now
won two in a row away from home. David Lee chipped in a double-double with 20
points and 11 rebounds and Klay Thompson contributed 13 points in the victory.
Ryan Anderson had a team-leading 21 points to go with nine rebounds in New
Orleans' third defeat to the Warriors this season. Losers in 11 of 14 games
overall, Anthony Davis scored 16 and Greivis Vasquez notched 14 points with
"We just didn't hit the shots," said Anderson, who was 7-for-19 from the
field. "I had some good looks that just didn't fall."
The Hornets trailed 69-61 entering the final stanza and were still within
eight just over six minutes through on a triple from Vasquez, however it all
fell apart from there.
The Warriors held New Orleans scoreless the rest of the way to close out the
contest on 13-0 run. The Hornets were 0-for-9 in the final 5:50 of play.
"Our defense was pretty good tonight. It kept us with a lead," said Lee. "In
the second half, I thought that that was one of our better jobs of executing
down the stretch."
Curry got going right away, scoring 10 of the Warriors' 19 points in the first
quarter, but it was New Orleans which led by three going into the second.
With the teams tied at 34-34 with five minutes until halftime, Thompson broke
the deadlock with a 3-pointer to begin a quarter-ending 11-2 push to send the
Warriors into the break with a nine-point advantage.
Their lead swelled to 57-44 on Curry's second triple of the third and after
seven straight points from Anderson later on in the period, Thompson brought
Golden State's edge back to double-digits with a triple at the 1:30 mark.
A pair of free throws by the Hornets' Brian Roberts kept them within eight
going into the fourth.
The teams will meet for the last time this season on April 3 at Golden State
... Golden State shot 50 percent for the game and were 10-of-19 from 3-point
range ... The Hornets committed 14 turnovers ... New Orleans' Eric Gordon
did not play with the team playing on the second night of a back-to-back.
