MILWAUKEE (AP) - David Lee had 22 points and 18 rebounds to lead the Golden State Warriors to their 10th straight win, a 101-80 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night.

Lee was 10 of 12 from the field for the Warriors, who have their longest winning streak since their NBA-title season in 1975. Stephen Curry contributed 15 points for the Warriors despite connecting on just 5 of 18 shots. Klay Thompson also scored 15 points.

The Warriors, playing their sixth game of a seven-city road trip, led by just two at the half against the Bucks, who have the NBA's worst record.

Golden State broke open the game with a 23-7 run to start the third quarter, highlighted by a step-back 3-pointer from the corner by Curry. Later in the quarter, Curry hit an acrobatic reverse layup while being fouled, extending Golden State's lead to 19. The Warriors led 79-68 heading into the fourth.

A 3 by O.J. Mayo cut Golden State's margin to eight to start the fourth, but the Warriors quickly built the lead back to double digits, cruising to victory. The Warriors led by as many as 23 late in the fourth.

Ersan Ilyasova had 20 points and Brandon Knight 18 for the Bucks.

Milwaukee grabbed a 30-28 lead after the first quarter, sparked by Knight's 10 points.

Golden State opened the second quarter on a 10-0 run and went on to a 50-48 lead at the half. Lee led the way with 14 points, making all seven of his shots from the field. He added seven first-half rebounds. Golden State shot 55 percent from the field in the half, despite connecting on only 4 of 14 3-point attempts.

Knight had 13 first-half points for the Bucks and Ilyasova added 12.

NOTES: Ilyasova sank his first 3-point attempt of the game. He entered having misfired on 20 consecutive 3s. . Warriors center Andrew Bogut, a No. 1 overall pick of the Bucks in 2005, played his first game in Milwaukee since a March 2012 trade that sent him to Golden State. ... Bucks coach Larry Drew said peace returned to the locker room following a dustup between teammates Larry Sanders and Gary Neal after Saturday's blowout loss at Phoenix. ''We're back in love with one another. It's a very emotional game and tempers do flare,'' Drew said. ''The most important thing is that there is no snowball effect. We make it an isolated incident.'' . Draymond Green returned to the Golden State lineup after injuring his ankle early in Sunday's win over Washington.
