NEW YORK, Dec. 7 (UPI) -- David Lee scored six points during a 9-0, fourth-quarter run Friday that rallied Golden State to a 109-102 decision over Brooklyn.

The surprising Warriors have won five of their last six, the two most recent victories having come at the start of a seven-game road trip that will last through Dec. 15. Brooklyn has dropped three straight.

The Nets had an 89-86 lead with 9:35 to go in the contest, but Stephen Curry tied it with a 3-pointer and Lee then produced six consecutive points to give Golden State a 95-89 advantage.

Lee scored 30 points, 13 of them coming in the final period, and grabbed 15 rebounds while Curry had 28 points. Golden State made 51 percent of its shots from the field and hit 9-of-19 from 3-point range.

Joe Johnson, Deron Williams and Andray Blatche combined to score all but 25 of Brooklyn's points. Johnson had 32, Williams scored 23 and Blatche chipped in 22 to go with 15 rebounds.
