CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Stephen Curry put on a show for his hometown fans Monday night, finishing with 27 points, seven assists and seven rebounds to lead the surging Golden State Warriors to a 104-96 win over the struggling Charlotte Bobcats.

Curry, who grew up in Charlotte and made a name for himself leading nearby Davidson College to the brink of the Final Four in 2008, shot 10 of 22 from the field and hit four 3-pointers. It was his eighth straight 20-point game, a career best.

David Lee had 25 points and 11 rebounds for the Warriors (14-7), who have won seven of their past eight games.

Kemba Walker scored 24 points and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added 17 to lead the Bobcats, who have lost eight straight since beginning the season 7-5.
