Speights scored 16 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter, and the Golden State Warriors beat the Charlotte Hornets 106-101 on Friday night for their eighth straight win.

Speights is averaging 18.7 points in his last six games.

Speights scored 28 points to help the Golden State Warriors beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 91-86 on Sunday night.

It matched the second-highest scoring game of Speights' career and was his best total since 2009 so he has no fantasy value.

Speights faces a drunken driving charge in Florida. Tampa police say the former Florida Gator was arrested early Tuesday morning and charged with driving under the influence. The Warriors said in a new release that the team was aware of the arrest but had no comment.

According to a police report, an officer pulled over Speights' black Bentley shortly after 3 a.m. because he failed to yield the right of way while pulling out of a driveway. The officer reported that Speights seemed impaired and agreed to a field sobriety test. Police say Speights' blood-alcohol level was recorded to be 0.103 and 0.106 percent. Florida law considers a driver impaired at 0.08.
