David Lee had 30 points and 15 rebounds and Stephen Curry added 28 points as the visiting Golden State Warriors defeated the Brooklyn Nets 109-102 in a National Basketball Association game.
Joe Johnson scored a season-high 32 points last night for the Nets, who were missing starting center and leading scorer Brook Lopez for the fourth straight game because of a sprained right foot.
Golden State, which trailed by eight points at halftime, improved to 12-7. The Nets (11-7) have lost three straight games to fall three games behind the New York Knicks in the Eastern Conference’s Atlantic division.
The game was played at the Barclays Center, which is located seven blocks from where Warriors coach Mark Jackson went to high school.
