The W's held a five point halftime lead as the Cavs kept it close most of the game. But the Warriors defense was too much to handle in the fourth quarter, holding Cleveland to only 16 points on their way to their second straight victory.
The Warriors (5-8) continued to feed David Lee the rock, leading all scorers with 29 minutes and nine rebounds on 13-20 shooting from the floor. They also got terrific production form the bench with Nate Robinson dropping 17, while Brandon Rush and Klay Thompson added 12 apiece.
Monta Ellis struggled from the floor, shooting only 2-10 and finishing with 10 points, as did Dorell Wright with 10 including 0-3 from downtown. Andris Beidrins pulled down 11 rebounds as well.
The Cavaliers (6-7) used a balanced attack with Antwan Jamison and Kyrie Irving scoring 19 and 18 respectfully and Semih Erden with 14 off the bench. Omri Casspi aded 11 and Anderson Varejo 10.
