OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Utah Jazz used 13 players in their first NBA preseason game, what ended up being an 83-80 loss to the Golden State Warriors.
David Lee had 19 points and 14 rebounds, Brandon Rush added 14 points and the Warriors held off a late charge to beat the Jazz on Monday night.
Stephen Curry had two points and six assists in his first game since March 11 while Klay Thompson scored 11 points for the Warriors (2-0). Curry had surgery in April to repair his injured right ankle.
Golden State led 69-58 in the fourth quarter before Utah made a late run behind center Enes Kanter. Kanter had 12 points and 11 rebounds and made a layup with 1:01 remaining that pulled the Jazz within 83-80.
Paul Millsap and Marvin Williams had 13 points apiece for Utah (0-1).
Curry played only 12 minutes and didn't score until making an 18-foot turnaround jumper late in the second quarter. He was clearly fatigued and stayed in the locker room after halftime.
As promised, coach Ty Corbin kept his starters on the bench in the first half, and Utah fell behind 42-33. Mo Williams scored the Jazz's first seven points.
