WASHINGTON (AP) - David Lee had 24 points and 17 rebounds, Klay Thompson added 23 points and the Golden State Warriors beat the Washington Wizards 101-97 on Saturday night for their third straight road win.

Stephen Curry scored 22 points for the Warriors, who won the first three games of a road trip for the first time since February, 2003.

Golden State, on a seven-game trip, is 13-7 overall, the first time it's been six games over .500 since the end of the 2007-08 season.

On Friday, the Warriors won at Brooklyn in coach Mark Jackson's homecoming, and they followed it with a close victory over the Wizards (2-15).

Jordan Crawford had 22 points, seven rebounds and eight assists, tying a season high for points and assists. Bradley Beal scored 17 points, Kevin Seraphin and Cartier Martin both had 14. All of Martin's points came in the second quarter. Martin did not attempt a shot in the second half.

Washington lost its first 12 this season, then won two of three, including an improbable victory over Miami on Tuesday before a flat performance at Atlanta on Friday.

The Wizards, who trailed most of the way, pulled into an 84-all tie when Chris Singleton hit one of two free throws with 4 minutes to play, but Golden State outscored Washington 9-1 on five points by Thompson, a jumper by Jarrett Jack and a layup by Lee to take a 93-85 lead with 2:19 to play.

Beal hit a 3-pointer with 8.2 seconds left to allow Washington to pull within 97-96. Curry hit two free throws, and Beal was fouled with 4.2 seconds to play. He hit the first, deliberately missed the second, Nene tipped the ball to Beal, whose shot missed badly. Carl Landry hit two free throws with 2 seconds left to seal it.

The Warriors, winners of 10 of their last 12, are now 6-1 against the East. They had a 57-37 advantage on the boards.

The Warriors sped to an early lead and were ahead 35-23 three minutes into the second quarter. Washington cut into it and trailed 50-47 at halftime.

The Wizards kept the game tight in the third quarter and could have ended it tied, but Nene missed the free throw of a possible three-point play and trailed 71-70 after three.

NOTES: Washington G A.J. Price left the game with a right hand injury after four minutes of the first quarter. ... Wizards F Trevor Ariza missed his second straight game with a strained left calf. F Trevor Booker his seventh straight with a right knee injury. When asked before the game if there was an update on Trevor, coach Randy Wittman joked: Which one?'' ... Golden State F Richard Jefferson, who missed his 10th straight game with a strained right calf, says he's nearing a return. ... Warriors rookie F Draymond Green fouled out with 16.1 seconds to play. It was Golden State's second disqualification of the season.
