OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Stephen Curry had 31 points and seven assists, David Lee finished with 22 points and 12 rebounds and the Golden State Warriors outlasted the Oklahoma City Thunder 104-99 on Wednesday night.

On the eve of the announcement for All-Star reserves, Golden State's top two candidates made a lasting impression.

Curry matched Kevin Durant's spectacular scores all game, stole a pass from the Thunder's leading man in the final seconds and hit a pair of free throws to seal Golden State's third straight victory. Lee helped the Warriors outrebound Oklahoma City's lengthy frontline 40-39 and made some big plays late.
