MILWAUKEE -- Golden State forward David Lee is making his presence felt and giving a team with many weapons another dimension. Corey Dillon Jersey . His play of late has reached All-Star calibre, Warriors coach Mark Jackson insisted after watching Lee lead Golden State to its 10th consecutive win Tuesday night, the Warriors longest streak since the 1975-76 season and one short of the franchise record of 11 wins in a row during the 1971-72 campaign. Fresh off of being named the Western Conference Player of the Week, Lee dominated around the basket, scoring 22 points on 10-of-12 shooting and grabbing 18 rebounds to spark the Warriors to a 101-80 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night. "Ive said all along that (Stephen) Curry is an All-Star, theres no question about that. But the way that David Lee has played the last 15 ball games, hes an All-Star," Jackson said. "He has separated himself." Lee hit his first nine shots from the field and recorded his 21st double-double of the season. "Im trying to be more aggressive and I think our team needs me to be more aggressive in the paint," Lee said. "We have so many guys that are good jump shooters, we need somebody around the rim thats going to attack the basket. Its all about taking what the defence gives us. Most importantly, I think our team is playing more consistent basketball." Curry contributed 15 points for the Warriors despite connecting on just 5 of 18 shots. Klay Thompson also scored 15 points, on 6-of-18 shooting. "Were not built offensively, were built defensively," Jackson said. "You can have off nights offensively and still win ball games. We defended at a high level and when you do that good things happen." Golden State centre Andrew Bogut, who had 12 rebounds and eight points, said he and Lee stress the importance of rebounding each time they take the court. Golden State outrebounded Milwaukee 54 to 37. "We set a goal, David and myself, to win the rebound battle," Bogut said. The Warriors played their sixth game of a seven-city road trip that concludes Wednesday night in Brooklyn. Golden State is trying to become the first team in NBA history to go undefeated on a road trip of seven or more games. "Its this close so were going to chase history," Jackson said. "My guys have paid the price and Im incredibly proud of them." Golden State led by just two at the half against the Bucks, who have the NBAs worst record. The Warriors broke open the game with a 23-7 run to start the third quarter, highlighted by a step-back 3-pointer from the corner by Curry. Later in the quarter, Curry hit an acrobatic reverse layup while being fouled, extending Golden States lead to 19. The Warriors led 79-68 heading into the fourth. A 3 by O.J. Mayo cut Golden States margin to eight to start the fourth, but the Warriors quickly built the lead back to double digits and cruised to victory. The Warriors led by as many as 22 late in the fourth. Ersan Ilyasova had 20 points and Brandon Knight 18 for the Bucks. "(The Warriors) have a lot of weapons and can beat you in a number of ways," Bucks coach Larry Drew said. "I thought we did some good things, but we didnt do it for the duration of the game. We had too many breakdowns, too many lapses and our margin for error is very small." Drew said he implored his team to play with high energy to start the second half, to no avail. "We came out and were flat-lined. They got on a good run and we just couldnt overcome the deficit," Drew said. Energetic play needs to be a team goal, Knight said. "It has to be all five guys that are on the court," he said. "We have to have everybody playing with as much energy as we can." Milwaukee grabbed a 30-28 lead after the first quarter, sparked by Knights 10 points. Golden State opened the second quarter on a 10-0 run and went on to a 50-48 lead at the half. Golden State shot 55 per cent from the field in the half, despite connecting on only 4 of 14 3-point attempts. Knight had 13 first-half points for the Bucks and Ilyasova added 12. NOTES: Ilyasova sank his first 3-point attempt of the game. He entered having misfired on 20 consecutive 3s. . Bogut, a No. 1 overall pick of the Bucks in 2005, played his first game in Milwaukee since a March 2012 trade that sent him to Golden State. ... Drew said peace returned to the locker room following a dustup between teammates Larry Sanders and Gary Neal after Saturdays blowout loss at Phoenix. "Were back in love with one another. Its a very emotional game and tempers do flare," Drew said. "The most important thing is that there is no snowball effect. We make it an isolated incident." .

Off-Season Game Plan looks at the Capitals possible summer plans, with the understanding that its tough to plot a direction without a general manager or head coach around which to set those expectations.SOCHI - What she remembers most is what it felt like to stand on the blue-line, proudly watch the Canadian flag rise for the first time and hear OCanada belted out passionately amongst a sea of Americans. "Just that feeling of complete satisfaction," said Jayna Hefford. "Feeling like everything we went through paid off." It was 2002 in Salt Lake City and the first of three consecutive Olympic gold medals for the national womens hockey program with Hefford, a native of Kingston, Ontario, scoring the game-winning goal in triumph over Team USA. The bid for a fourth straight gold begins Saturday at Shayba Arena with a preliminary round matchup against Switzerland. "Its a memory and a feeling Ill never forget," said Hefford of winning gold for the first time, one of three on the roster to do so in 2002, 2006, and 2010. "It was a special time so Im hoping we can recreate it here [in Sochi]." Getting to that point is certain to include yet another round of hostilities with an American team bent on ending Canadas run of dominance at this event. Though theyve captured four of the past five World Championships, beating the Canadians each time, the US squad has fallen in two of the past three gold medal games, yet to triumph at the Olympics since 1998. "Obviously we haave a great rivalry with them," said Hefford, "but theres a lot of games before then and if we dont take care of ourselves here we could face them either earlier than we want in a medal round or not get to a medal round so its really day-by-day and I think thats the best way to look at it. Steve Spurrier Jersey. " These will be the fifth Olympics for Hefford, but she says the experience remains as fresh and exciting as it was 16 years ago when womens hockey was first introduced to the Olympic stage in Nagano - she and the Canadians were edged by the Americans in the gold medal game. "You still have that youthful energy and that excitement," she said. "Its so exciting to be here. You try to take lessons that you learned along the way and bring them into this one, but it still feels like the first one." And thats just one of the lessons shell try to impart on a group of teammates itching for their first taste of gold - enjoy the moment. "It goes by so quickly and you wait so long to get here so really just take in every day and enjoy that," said Hefford, also advising patience with the teams plan of attack. "Theres tough days and theres going to be challenges in these next two weeks, but believe that in the end we can be where we want to be." ' ' '
