Missing three starters, Warriors roll past Cavs

CLEVELAND — Klay Thompson scored a career-high 32 and the shorthanded Warriors beat the Cavaliers 108-95 on Tuesday night.

The Warriors were missing three starters — guard Stephen Curry (ankle), center Andrew Bogut (ankle) and forward Harrison Barnes (knee). Also, top reserve Carl Landry was out because of a shoulder injury.

Still, Golden State shot 54 percent and hit its first nine 3-pointers, finishing 11-for-16 from beyond the arc. Golden State took control in the second quarter and led by 16 in the second half.

Jarrett Jack, starting at point guard in place of Curry, had 26 points and 12 assists, and former Gator David Lee had 20 points and 13 rebounds.

"No matter who is out there, we're still going to play Warriors basketball," Lee said.

Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving, who missed the morning shootaround because of illness, scored 14 on 5-for-17 shooting.

bucks rout pistons: Brandon Jennings scored 20 of his 30 in the third quarter, leading the visiting Bucks to a 117-90 victory over the Pistons. Detroit rookie Andre Drummond had 18 points and 18 rebounds. Drummond became the second teenager to have an 18-18 game since 1985-86, joining Dwight Howard, who had three games of at least 18 rebounds and 18 points at the age of 19. The Pistons led by 15 late in the first quarter and were outscored 78-40 over the next 25 minutes. During the third, Jennings accounted for all of the scoring during a 16-0 run that was capped by four 3's, pushing the lead to 85-56.

around the league: Executive director Billy Hunter has fired his daughter and daughter-in-law from the NBA players' association, less than two weeks after an independent investigation criticized nepotism at the organization. He also cut union ties with Prim Capital, the banking firm that employs Hunter's son, Todd. The union paid almost $4.8 million to Hunter's family members and their professional firms since 2001, according to public records. Hunter, who makes $3 million a year, did nothing illegal, the investigation said. … The Cavaliers and Heat are the leaders to sign center Greg Oden, according to reports. The No. 1 overall pick in 2007, taken by the Blazers over Kevin Durant, has had three microfracture surgeries on his knees and last played Dec. 5, 2009. Oden, 25, is expected to be ready for next season's training camp. … Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman revealed, at his wife Mary Kay's urging, that she has been having seizures.

iverson update: Allen Iverson, who last played in the NBA almost three years ago, declined an offer from the Mavericks' Development League affiliate, the Texas Legends. Iverson, 37, left the 76ers in March 2010 to deal with a sick daughter, then had a brief stop with a professional team in Turkey and played exhibitions in China.
