MILWAUKEE -- Forward David Lee scored 22 points to lead the Golden State Warriors to a 101-80 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

Lee went 10 of 12 from the field and pulled down 18 rebounds as the Warriors (24-13) extended their winning streak to 10 games and capped an undefeated six-game road swing against Eastern Conference teams.

Along with Lee, guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson each finished with 15 points and forward Andre Iguodala added 11 points, seven rebounds and five assists.

Warriors center Andrew Bogut had eight points, 11 rebounds and a blocked shot in Milwaukee, where he spent his first seven NBA seasons.

The Bucks came into the game with the league's worst record and were home for the first time since a 1-3 trip through the West that ended with a 116-100 loss on Sunday night at Phoenix.

Point guard Brandon Knight got the Bucks off to a good start, scoring 10 points on 5-of-7 shooting as Milwaukee shot 58 percent from the field and led 30-28 after one quarter.

Knight finished with 18 points. Forward Ersan Ilyasova led the Bucks (7-28) with 20 points. Shooting guard O.J. Mayo added 13 and forward Khris Middleton 10 for Milwaukee, which lost for the sixth time in seven games.

Lee started hot, sinking his first nine shots from the field. Midway through the second quarter, he made a short jumper that gave the Warriors a 46-36 lead.

With Lee setting the pace, Golden State shot 55 percent from the field and took a 50-48 lead into the break.

The Warriors went up by as many as 19 points in the third quarter before the Bucks began to whittle the deficit, getting within eight on Mayo's 3-pointer with 9:23 to play.

Spaights restored the double-digit lead and forward Harrison Barnes hit a 3-pointer from the top of the key to make it 84-71 with 8:28 left.

NOTES: Warriors C Andrew Bogut played at the Bradley Center for the first time since March 2012 when he was traded by the Bucks to the Warriors for G Monta Ellis. Bogut traveled to Milwaukee with Golden State last season but did not play because injury. He was selected first overall by the Bucks in the 2005 NBA Draft. .... Bogut has shot 50 percent or better from the field in his last 24 games, a career high. ... Bucks coach Larry Drew met with each of his players on Monday after a locker-room argument between C Larry Sanders and G Gary Neal. ... Milwaukee F Ersan Ilyasova made a 3-pointer with 7:05 left in the first quarter, snapping an 0-for-20 skid from beyond the arc. Ilyasova came into the game having made just 16.3 percent (8-of-49) of his 3-point attempts this season after hitting 44.8 percent of his long-range attempts the last two seasons.
