OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Maybe it was Andre Iguodala's presence in the starting lineup. Maybe it was coach Mark Jackson publicly challenging his players. Or maybe it was simply facing an undermanned opponent at home.
Whatever the reason, the Golden State Warriors finally started to look like the team that started off so strong this season.
Stephen Curry had 28 points and 12 assists, David Lee added 21 points and 17 rebounds and the Warriors beat the short-handed New Orleans Pelicans 104-93 on Tuesday night in Iguodala's long-awaited return.
