Recap: Golden State vs. LA Lakers

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Stephen Curry had 18 points, nine assists and six rebounds as the Golden State Warriors routed the Los Angeles Lakers 102-83 on Saturday night.

David Lee netted 19 points to go with 10 rebounds and Andrew Bogut pulled down 20 boards for the Warriors, who had dropped four of their last six games coming in.

Golden State scored 28 points off 24 LA turnovers.

"Definitely a much needed win. Especially after dropping the ball against a shorthanded Spurs team, we had to come out and assert ourselves early and take it from there," Curry said.

Nick Young had 20 points off the bench, while Chris Kaman registered 10 points and 17 boards for Los Angeles, which had its brief two-game winning streak snapped.

"They battled. We just didn't have enough," Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said. "We played with heart until we ran out of gas."

The Lakers' Pau Gasol missed the game due to an upper respiratory infection.

The Warriors had a 51-46 advantage in the third and seized control of the contest following an elongated 21-4 run. Marreese Speights had six points during the surge, including the last four to cap it and extend the margin to 72-50 late in the third.

Golden State took a 72-57 cushion into the fourth, where the hosts cruised to the easy win.

The Warriors led 27-26 after a quarter of play and 46-42 at the break.
