OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) David Lee and rookie Harrison Barnes each scored 16 points, and the Golden State Warriors beat the Phoenix Suns 107-92 on Tuesday night to close out their preseason.

Jarrett Jack, starting in place of injured point guard Stephen Curry, had 13 points, nine assists and five rebounds, while Klay Thompson added 12 points for the Warriors (6-1).

Marcin Gortat had 19 points and 10 rebounds for Phoenix. Markieff Morris added 15 points and seven rebounds off the bench.

The Suns (3-3) led after the first quarter but couldn't get much going after that and trailed by as much as 20.

Curry missed his second straight game after injuring his surgically repaired right ankle in Golden State's 101-97 win at Portland on Friday night.
