New Orleans, LA (Sports Network) - Jarrett Jack finished with a double-double for the second consecutive night and the Golden State Warriors snapped out of a three-game funk with a 116-112 triumph over the New Orleans Hornets on Saturday.

In his first game back in New Orleans, where he spent the past two seasons, Jack scored 25 points to go along with 12 assists. He came off the bench, as Stephen Curry returned to the starting lineup following a two-game absence with an ankle injury.

Curry finished with 20 points, seven assists and four steals while Klay Thompson notched a game-high 29 points.

The Warriors, who came in losers in five of six, bounced back despite missing David Lee, who sat after injuring his ankle in Friday's loss to San Antonio. Carl Landry started in his place and tallied 11 points and 11 rebounds.

New Orleans was led by Eric Gordon's 23 points, but it couldn't extend a two-game winning streak. Rookie Anthony Davis finished with 20 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks while Greivis Vasquez dished out 15 assists and scored eight points in defeat.
