OAK­LAND, CALIF: Monta El­lis had 22 points and a sea­son-high 12 as­sists, David Lee added 21 points and 16 re­bounds and Golden State won its third straight, beat­ing the Philadel­phia 76ers 110-95 on Mon­day night.

Stephen Curry added 17 points, in­clud­ing seven straight dur­ing a de­ci­sive run in the fourth quar­ter when the War­riors (12-18) pulled away.

The three-game win­ning streak is Golden State's long­est since it won three in a row in April 2009.

Jrue Hol­i­day had 23 points and 11 as­sists for Philadel­phia (12-19) while El­ton Brand had his eighth dou­ble-dou­ble in 13 games with 16 points and 16 re­bounds.

El­lis, named the Western Con­fer­ence player of the week ear­lier in the day af­ter av­er­ag­ing 39.7 points in three games, strug­gled with his shot most of the night. He missed seven of his first 11 at­tempts and was didn't score in the fourth quar­ter un­til 23 sec­onds were left.

That didn't seem to slow the War­riors down much. Golden State made its best run of the game to open the fourth quar­ter with El­lis on the bench.

Lee and Wright com­bined for 10 points and Curry, play­ing in foul trou­ble most of the game, added a 3-pointer to give the War­riors a 94-80 lead. Af­ter El­lis re­turned, Curry made two free throws and added an­other 3 to make it 101-85. -Ap
