(Tuesday, December 17th)

Final Score: Golden State 104, New Orleans 93

Oakland, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Stephen Curry had 28 points and 12 assists in the Golden State Warriors' 104-93 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday.

David Lee added 21 points and 17 rebounds for the Warriors, who have won six straight against New Orleans. Klay Thompson and Marreese Speights tallied 16 and 12 points, respectively.

Golden State forward Andre Iguodala returned to the lineup after missing 12 games with a hamstring injury. He ended with two points in 17 minutes of action.

"It felt good. I got tired of watching," Iguodala said. "You get a new appreciation for the game, especially seeing your brothers struggle. Tonight was a great game by everyone, just to get a win and put together a string of good basketball the way we did the first three quarters."

Ryan Anderson scored 21 points for the Pelicans, who have lost two in a row since a two-game winning streak. Jason Smith had 12 points and Jrue Holiday and Austin Rivers each donated 11 points.

"Just a tough game. Another one of those that they just had a little bit more energy than us," Anderson said.

New Orleans watched the Warriors jump out to a 16-6 lead, but the Pelicans scored eight straight points to make it a two-point game.

Golden State went on an 8-0 run moments later to build a double-digit lead. Lou Amundson scored the final three points of the first period to get New Orleans within seven, 26-19.
