Recap: Orlando vs. Golden State

Orlando, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - David Lee poured in a game-high 22 points and had nine rebounds to lead Golden State to a 94-81 victory over Orlando.

Klay Thompson scored 15 and Kent Bazemore added 12 points for the Warriors, who have won six straight. Marreese Speights contributed 10 points and six rebounds.

Arron Afflalo netted 15 and Jameer Nelson had 11 points and six assists for Orlando, which has lost four of its last six. Glen Davis added 10 points in the defeat.

The teams traded baskets through the first 3:21 until Thompson knocked down a trey to break the deadlock at eight. The basket sparked an 18-7 run for the Warriors to close out the first quarter.

"There's alot of learning to do, so much learning to do. I feel like we make steps and then we take steps backwards, that's everybody though, in every direction." said Davis.

Golden State led 36-26 with 8:17 to play in the first half before Lee ignited an 18-4 surge. Lee netted eight points on the Warriors run.

The Warriors led 58-35 at halftime.

"That's what the good teams do, they handle their business. This is a team that, obviously, early in the game was shorthanded but I like the way we responded. We came with the correct mindset and a big win from beginning to end." said Golden State head coach Mark Jackson.

Golden State stretched its advantage to 25 points 1:39 into the third quarter. A Davis layup, just under three minutes later, started a 12-4 Magic run. Nelson's 3 with 3:14 to play in the third capped off the run and brought Orlando within 16 points.

The Magic trailed by 15 points, 74-59, as they headed into the final 12 minutes.

After its first basket of the quarter and in the last minute, Orlando came within 13 points but no closer as the Warriors sailed to the finish.

"That comes with time it really does, that comes with being in situations over and over again and if you look at a broad picture across the league it takes mature veteran teams to weather multiple storms throughout the course of a night, we'll get there." said Magic head coach Jacque Vaughn about his team learning to get through rough times.
