Final Score: Sacramento 105, Golden State 98
Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Isaiah Thomas poured in a game-high 31 points
to go along with seven assists to lead the Sacramento Kings to a 105-98 win
over the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday.
Thomas went 7-for-12 from 3-point range, and 10-for-18 from the field.
DeMarcus Cousins added 14 points and Marcus Thornton finished with 13 for the
Kings, who have taken three of four from the Warriors this season.
David Lee and Stephen Curry both recorded double-doubles for the Warriors, who
had won two straight entering the contest.
Lee finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds, while Curry had 17 points and 12
assists in the setback.
Golden State jumped out to a 27-24 lead after the first 12 minutes. The
Warriors pushed their spread to nine, 33-24, following Harrison Barnes' layup
just under two minutes into the second.
The Kings, though, opened a 13-1 burst to take a 37-34 lead with just over
seven minutes to go. Golden State regained the lead following a Lee dunk at
the two-minute mark, but a Cousins layup, followed by a Thomas jumper, gave
Sacramento a 47-44 lead at the break.
The Kings used a 17-8 surge to push their spread to 64-52 with just over five
minutes to play in the third, but the Warriors countered with a 14-7 sequence
to cut the lead to five. The Kings, though, scored the final six points of the
quarter, including a deep Thomas triple with 3.6 ticks remaining in the
"Guys made a lot of plays in that third quarter, finding each other and
knocking down shots," Thomas said.
Barnes' layup with 3 1/2 minutes left pulled Golden State within 93-88, but
the Kings pushed their edge back to eight, 100-92, with 32.8 seconds left.
Curry's layup made it a six-point game. Curry then stole a wild pass from
Patrick Patterson, and layed it in to make it 100-96 with 20.1 seconds left.
Thomas split a pair of free throws to make it 101-96 two seconds later before
Jarrett Jack cut the lead to three with 14.9 seconds remaining.
It would be as close the Warriors would get, as Golden State was held
scoreless the rest of the way.
Thomas's seven 3-pointers mark a career-high ... The Warriors outscored the
Kings 68-38 in the paint ... Curry tied a season high with 12 assists.
