OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) –– Monta Ellis scored 26 points, David Lee had 22 points and 17 rebounds, and the Golden State Warriors held on to beat the suddenly sluggish Los Angeles Lakers 95-87 on Wednesday night.

Stephen Curry added 20 points, six rebounds and five assists to help the Warriors build a 19-point lead in their third straight victory — all against playoff-bound teams. They have beaten Dallas, Portland and Los Angeles in perhaps their best stretch of wins all season.

Kobe Bryant had 25 points and Pau Gasol scored 18 for the Lakers, who lost for the second consecutive night to an inferior opponent. Bryant brought the Lakers within eight points in a frantic rally in the fourth quarter, but all that did was make the final score seem close.

    I just heard that Steve Nash divorced his wife because she had black baby! He filed for divorce the day after the birth. Even worse the father is supposedly former teammate Jason Richardson. They traded him to Orlando when word got out. Hahahaha. Always hated Nash! He looks like Bud Bundy

    Hope the lakers loose the NBA West. That would mean; no riots, no looting and no people getting the tar beat out of them. I’m a fan of who ever is playing the lakers.
