Warriors dominate Celtics, 108-88

BOSTON (AP) - Klay Thompson and David Lee scored 18 points each and the Golden State Warriors went a season-high 14 games over .500 with a 108-88 romp over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.

The Warriors scored the first six points, led 12-2 with just over five minutes gone and stayed ahead by at least 20 points throughout the second half.

Golden State had an easy time against one of the NBA's worst teams one night after beating one of the best. Thompson's 12-foot turnaround with 0.6 seconds left had given the Warriors a 98-96 win at the Indiana Pacers, the league's top team at home.

Former Celtic Jordan Crawford had 15 points and Stephen Curry added 14 for the Warriors (38-24), who won for the seventh time in nine games.

Kelly Olynyk scored 19 points for Boston (20-41), which dropped its seventh game in its past eight.

Lee started the scoring with an 18-footer and Andre Iguodala followed with a layup and a dunk for a 6-0 lead. Jerryd Bayless then hit a fadeaway jumper for Boston, but Golden State got the next six points on dunks by Curry and Thompson and a layup by Lee.

The game was still competitive when Bayless' two free throws cut Golden State's lead to 42-33 with 5:55 left in the first half. Then Thompson's 3-pointer began a 19-7 run that gave the Warriors a 61-40 lead at halftime.

Baskets by Lee and Andrew Bogut made it 49-33 before Rajon Rondo sank a free throw and Jared Sullinger made two for Boston. But then Golden State scored the next six points on a short jumper by Lee, a dunk by Iguodala and a 16-footer by Curry.

A 3-pointer by Jeff Green cut the margin to 55-38, but Curry followed with a 3-point play. Rondo answered with a layup before Iguodala finished the first-half scoring with a 3-pointer with 10 seconds remaining.

The sloppy Celtics committed 12 turnovers in the first half, leading to 15 points, while the Warriors turned the ball over just twice, leading to two points.

The Warriors took their biggest lead, 31 points, when consecutive baskets by Thompson made it 80-49 with just over five minutes left in the third quarter.

NOTES: Golden State ended its road trip with a 4-2 record and has 20 road wins, tied with Oklahoma City for second most in the NBA. ... Warriors coach Mark Jackson rested his starters in the fourth quarter. ... Rondo had 14 points and seven assists, but also had seven turnovers. ... Lee had a game-high 10 rebounds, while Bogut blocked three shots.
