Warriors withstand scare to beat Bucks 115-110
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Curry had 31 points and 11 assists, Klay Thompson scored 29 and the Golden State Warriors moved 18 games over .500 for the first time in 20 years with a 115-110 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday night.
David Lee added 22 points and 12 rebounds to help the Warriors sweat out a tougher-than-expected game against the NBA’s worst team. Golden State (44-26) remains in sixth place in the tight Western Conference standings, 1½ games behind Portland and 2½ games ahead of Memphis and Dallas with 12 games left.
The Bucks (13-56) were handed another blow in a season full of them when guard Nate Wolters broke his left hand in the first half. Reserve forward Jeff Adrien also received three stitches above his left eye before coming back in the second quarter.
