Recap: Golden State vs. Cleveland

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Spencer Hawes scored 22 points with 13 rebounds to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 103-94 win over the Golden State Warriors.

Dion Waiters tallied 18 points, while Luol Deng and Kyrie Irving each added 16 points for the Cavs, who have won two straight overall and snapped a six- game losing streak to the Warriors.

Cleveland outscored the Warriors in the middle periods by a 68-39 margin to take control heading into the fourth quarter.

"I thought we did a nice job making them work, allowing 41 points in the second half," said Cavs coach Mike Brown. "Down the stretch, I thought Dion was good defensively (and) Kyrie was good defensively. There were a lot of individual performances that were fun to watch."

Stephen Curry posted a game-high 27 points on his 26th birthday, Draymond Green netted 18 off the bench, and David Lee added 16 in the setback, Golden State's second straight on the heels of a five-game winning streak.

Klay Thompson missed the first game of his career on Friday due to the death of his grandfather, snapping a string of 214 straight games in the Golden State lineup.

"Just a bad loss for us," said Warriors coach Mark Jackson. "We have to do a better job when we have teams on the ropes. Collectively, we didn't do the job."

Lee scored nine points during a 20-4 run to open the game and Andre Iguodala capped it with two 3-pointers midway through the first quarter. The Warriors led 32-16 after one and Cleveland proceeded to turn up the intensity.

Golden State pushed its lead to 18 early in the second when the Cavs answered with 23-2 surge to take a 41-38 lead. Waiters and Matthew Dellavedova each hit two 3s during the run to help the visitors back into the game.
