OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Spencer Hawes had 22 points and 13 rebounds to help the Cleveland Cavaliers erase an 18-point first-half deficit on the way to a 103-94 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Friday night.

Dion Waiters added 18 points and Luol Deng and Kyrie Irving had 16 apiece for the Cavaliers, who overcame a slow start to take the game over in the final three quarters and snap a six-game losing streak against the Warriors.

Stephen Curry scored 27 points on his 26th birthday and Draymond Green added 18 but it wasn't enough to prevent another bad home loss by the Warriors, who were without starting guard Klay Thompson. He was in the Bahamas for his grandfather's funeral.

Golden State had won five straight at home following a 4-6 stretch in January and February that included losses to lesser teams like Denver, Minnesota, Washington and Charlotte.
