CLEVELAND – David Lee scored a season-high 29 points — 13 in the fourth quarter — and Nate Robinson added 17 points, leading the Golden State Warriors to a 105-95 win Tuesday night over the road-worn Cleveland Cavaliers.
Lee scored 7 straight points midway through the final period to help the Warriors pull away from the Cavs, who were coming off a seven-game road trip.
Golden State's Monta Ellis had to be helped from the floor bleeding in the final minute with a cut on his face. He was accidentally struck by an elbow from Cleveland's Anderson Varejao. Ellis finished with 10 points — 13 below his average.
Robinson added 10 assists and rookie Klay Thompson scored 14 for Golden State.
