David Lee's 22 points and 18 rebounds led the Warriors to a 101-80 win over the Bucks on Tuesday night at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee.

The victory pushed the Warriors' record to 6-0 on this road trip and extended their overall win streak to 10 games – their longest since 1975 and one game away from a franchise-record 11 set during the 1971-72 season.

The Warriors can tie the franchise record on Wednesday at Brooklyn, and a victory over the Nets would put the Dubs in position to set a new record upon their return to Oracle Arena on Friday night to face Boston.

Guards Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson each added 15 points, despite combining for 11-of-36 shooting. Andre Iguodala finished with 11 points, seven assists and five rebounds, while Andrew Bogut added 8 points and 12 rebounds.

The Warriors clobbered Milwaukee on the boards (54-37) and held them to 38.8 percent shooting – 23 percent in the second half

The Warriors (24-13) also moved to 19-3 with their regular starting lineup: Bogut, Lee, Iguodala, Thompson and Curry.

The Bucks fell to 7-27, the worst record in the NBA.

STANDOUT PERFORMANCES: Lee was perfect from the field (9 of 9) until midway through fourth quarter, when he missed an 18-foot jumper. He recorded his 21st double-double this season. Lee is tied for fifth in the NBA in double-doubles.

Iguodala also neared perfection, making all three of his field-goal attempts but missing two of his four free throws.

TURNING POINT: Up 57-53 with 9:30 left in the third quarter, the Warriors went on a 16-2 run, taking a 73-55 lead on Andre Iguodala's 3-pointer with 5:11 left in the quarter. All five starters scored at least one basket during the rally.

The Bucks never got closer than eight (79-71) the rest of the way.

INJURY UPDATE: For the Warriors, centers Jermaine O'Neal (right wrist surgery) and Festus Ezeli (right knee surgery) are out indefinitely.

For the Nets, point guard Deron Williams (ankles) is out indefinitely and center Brook Lopez (foot) is out for the season.

WHAT'S NEXT: Thanks to bizarre bit of scheduling, the Warriors leave Milwaukee immediately after the game to fly east to New York. They face Brooklyn on Wednesday at Barclays Center, concluding the seven-game road trip before returning to the Bay Area.
