Recap: Golden State vs. Detroit

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Stephen Curry poured in 25 points and handed out eight assists, as the Golden State Warriors pounded the Detroit Pistons, 113-95, on Tuesday at Oracle Arena.

David Lee and Jermaine O'Neal donated 17 points apiece, while Klay Thompson tallied 14 points for the Warriors, who snapped a two-game slide.

"I thought we did an outstanding job of sharing the basketball," Golden State head coach Mark Jackson said. "We just made plays."

Andre Drummond led Detroit with a 16-point, 14-rebound double-double and Greg Monroe chipped in 15 points for the Pistons, who have lost four straight.

"We just have to watch some film and get back to being aggressive and physical in the paint," Detroit forward Josh Smith said of the team's struggles.

The Warriors led from start to finish, as they opened the game on a 16-4 surge that Andre Iguodala capped with a 3-pointer under five minutes into the tilt.

A Curry triple late in the frame sparked an 11-2 quarter-closing run that sent Golden State into the second with a comfortable 35-16 advantage.

Lee helped the Warriors extend the margin in the second, scoring nine points and grabbing six boards in the frame as the Warriors carried a 62-41 cushion into halftime.

Curry and Harrison Barnes combined to shoot 8-of-9 from the floor for 20 points in the third, as Golden State pushed its lead to 94-71 heading into the final frame.

Detroit got within 13 in the fourth on Will Bynum's three-point play, but the Warriors were able to hold on down the stretch for the double-digit victory.
