Golden State Warriors Overcome Slow Start, Sweep New Orleans Hornets

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Down early, David Lee and Stephen Curry helped the Golden State Warriors (42-32) knock off the New Orleans Hornets (26-49) 98-88, sweeping the season series for the first time in 17 seasons.

Lee scored 23 points and collected 16 rebounds as he helped his team respond to an 11-point second quarter deficit. The Warriors went on a 25-6 run, outscoring the Hornets 32-14 in the second quarter and never looked back.

Stephen Curry added 20 points and nine assists of his own as he continued to play solid basketball down the regular season stretch. Curry has averaged 25.8 points and 7.4 assists over the past 10 contests.

Jarrett Jack scored 19 points to go along with eight assists off of the bench. Jack has continued to play well against his former Hornets team, averaging 17.3 points and 8.8 assists in the four contests.

Eric Gordon scored 21 points for New Orleans but shot just 5-17. Much like his team, he struggled to find a rhythm all night, scoring 10 of his points from the free-throw line.

The Warriors won the rebound battle 47-39 and outshot the Hornets 46.2% to 39.8%. Golden State was also able to outshoot New Orleans from both the free-throw line and beyond the arc, dominating most aspects of the game.

Surging towards the playoffs, Andrew Bogut talked his Warriors teammates into not shaving until the regular season finale on April 17th. But with the magic number down to just 3, the playoffs are all but locked up for Golden State.

The Warriors hit the road and take on the Phoenix Suns on Friday night for a quick one game road trip.

Ryan Anderson Throws Down Savage Dunk On Kobe Bryant

Although Kobe would get the last laugh with the win, his second great performance and the Lakers notched back-to-back wins for just the second time this season, that doesn't stop this Ryan Anderson dunk from being any less disrespectful. The Mamba is in a retirement year, man, let him go out with his dignity still in tact.
