David Wesley hit a pair from the line to tie the game and Baron Davis and

Clifford Robinson’s three-pointer pulled the Warriors within three, 82-79, and
a basket by Dunleavy made it 85-83 with 2:20 to play. Wesley, however,
answered with a trey to give New Orleans an 88-83 advantage with under two

The Warriors are off until Tuesday when they start a four-game road trip in
New York against the Knicks.
