                 === Curry, Lee help Warriors down Bobcats ===
 
 Charlotte,  NC (Sports  Network) - Stephen Curry and David Lee combined for 52
 points to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 104-96 wire-to-wire win over the
 Charlotte Bobcats on Monday.
 
 Curry  finished with  27 points to go  along with seven assists and Lee had 25
 points  on  10-for-14 shooting  and 11  boards. Carl Landry  had 16 points and
 Jarrett Jack scored 12 for the Warriors, winners in four straight.
 
 "That first half was a thing of beauty. We defended, we paid attention to
 detail and we executed," said Warriors coach Mark Jackson. "In the second half
 we let our foot off the gas pedal on both sides of the basketball, but that
 first half was outstanding."
 
 Kemba  Walker  dropped in 24  points to go with  six assists and Michael Kidd-
 Gilchrist  had 17  points and seven rebounds for the Bobcats, who have dropped
 eight straight.
 
 "When you lose consecutive games like we have the value of a shot for a player
 appears to be 10 and not two or three," said Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap.
 
 Golden  State  opened up a  commanding 38-23 lead  after the first 12 minutes.
 Harrison Barnes' runner sparked a 21-8 run to put the Warriors up 28-13 with 4
 1/2  minutes left  in the frame. The  Bobcats managed to cut the lead to 32-23
 following  Ramon Sessions' 3-pointer at the 2:13 mark, but Golden State scored
 the final six points of the quarter.
 
 The  Warriors' lead swelled  to 21 in the second quarter, and Golden State led
 58-40  at the break. The Bobcats shot a pitiful 26.7 percent from the floor in
 the period and went 0-for-5 from 3-point range.
 
 Curry  dropped in 15  points in the third after going 3-for-3 from long range.
 Charlotte  worked the deficit  down to 13 with just over a minute remaining in
 the stanza, but the Warriors closed the frame on a mini 6-0 burst.
 
 The  Bobcats  outscored Golden State  22-11 over the  final 12 minutes, but it
 wasn't  nearly  enough for  Charlotte, which  shot just  37.3 percent from the
 floor.
