OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Stephen Curry scored 29 points and had a season-high 12 assists, Monta Ellis added 33 points and the Golden State Warriors beat the Utah Jazz 119-101 on Thursday night.

David Lee added 23 points and 14 rebounds for the Warriors. Golden State has won two straight since losing the first four games on its six-game homestand.

Curry and Ellis, who were on the bench for most of the fourth quarter in Tuesday's win over Sacramento when coach Mark Jackson played mainly reserves, didn't get much of a rest against the Jazz while leading the Warriors to their highest point total of the season.

Paul Milsap had 15 points and 11 rebounds for Utah. The Jazz played without starting point guard Devin Harris, who was a late scratch due to a strained left hamstring.
