TORONTO -- Led by All-Star David Lee and shooting sensation Stephen Curry, the Golden State Warriors outlasted the Toronto Raptors, 114-102, Monday night at the Air Canada Centre.
Lee flirted with a triple-double, but came up short with 21 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists. It was, however, more than enough to hand the Raptors their second consecutive loss. Although Curry's night was cut short by a twisted ankle he sustained late in the third quarter, he still finished with 17 points on 7-for-12 shooting.
Sophomore guard Klay Thompson, who has been averaging 19.8 points the last six games, chipped in 19 points and seven rebounds, while center Andrew Bogut returned from an ankle injury for the first time since Nov.7 and didn't skip a beat with 12 points, eight rebounds and four blocks in 23 minutes of play
It was another disappointing loss for the Raptors, who blew a double-digit, an ugly occurrence that has led to five losses this January.
Although the Warriors had six players scoring in double-figures, they couldn't contain the Warriors' crisp inside passing and quick plays. Center Aaron Gray led Toronto with 22 and 10 rebounds while guard DeMar DeRozan chalked 21 and nine assists. Ed Davis added 12 points while Jose Calderon, Terrence Ross and Alan Anderson each had 11.
With a 27-17 won-lost slate, the Warriors remained at No.2 in the Pacific Division behind the 33-13 Los Angeles Clippers and fifth overall in the Western Conference behind the steady 36-11 San Antonio Spurs.
The Raptors dropped to 16-29. (RC)
