David Lee had 26 points and nine rebounds, Klay Thompson finished with 19 points and the Golden State Warriors brought their surprising road run home with a 103-96 victory over the struggling New Orleans Hornets on Tuesday night.

After going 6-1 on the season's longest road stretch, the Warriors built a 14-point lead in the second quarter and held off the Hornets late. Golden State (17-8) is off to its best start since the 1991-92 season, when the team began 21-8.

Ryan Anderson scored 28 points off the bench and Anthony Davis had 15 points and 16 rebounds in his first start in a month for the Hornets, who lost their eighth straight and are the worst team in the Western Conference with a 5-19 record.
