Warriors Streak by Lakers

Monta Ellis scored 26 points, David Lee had 22 points and 17 rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors held on to beat the suddenly sluggish Los Angeles Lakers 95-87 on Wednesday night.

Stephen Curry added 20 points, six rebounds and five assists to help the Warriors build a 19-point lead in their third straight victory—all against playoff-bound teams.

They have beaten Dallas, Portland and Los Angeles in perhaps their best stretch of wins all season.

Kobe Bryant had 25 points and Pau Gasol scored 18 for the Lakers, who lost for the second consecutive night to an inferior opponent.

Bryant brought the Lakers within eight points in a frantic rally in the fourth quarter, but all that did was make the final score seem close.
