Warriors dominant against Sacramento Kings

0 44

Golden State Warriors were dominant in their game against Sacramento Kings in their 130-125 victory.

Stephen Curry scored 28 of his 33 points during an 89-point first half, and the defending champions defeated Sacramento on Sunday night.

Curry, who record another straight 30-point performance to start the season, scored 21 points in the second quarter with five 3-pointers and shot 11 for 22 overall, including 7 of 12 on 3s.

The reigning NBA Finals MVP assisted Golden State to its third-most points in any half in franchise history and second-most in a first half. The Warriors’ 50 points in the second quarter were a franchise record and matched the third-most points in any period.

”It was fun, 89 points in the first half, that’s crazy,” Jordan Poole said.

Curry has three straight 30-point games to start a season for the second time in his career, also done in 2018-19.

”We played at times brilliantly and we couldn’t sustain it,” coach Steve Kerr said. ”It was closer than it should have been, but I give Sacramento a lot of credit.

“Mike’s doing a great job with those guys. They’re fighting, they’re competing. They’ve had three close losses now to start the year. … We let our guard down and they took advantage of it.”

Andrew Wiggins added 24 points with a driving slam to beat the final buzzer and Poole also scored 24 as the Warriors shot 51.7%. Klay Thompson was held to eight points on 3-for-10 shooting.

De’Aaron Fox scored 26 after two 30-point games and Domantas Sabonis contributed 19 points and 14 rebounds, but didn’t play in the fourth for winless Sacramento (0-3) in the second night of a back-to-back. The Kings, who lost 111-109 at home to the Clippers on Saturday night, attempted 100 shots Sunday and their three defeats have been decided by 14 total points.

”We can’t give up 50 points in the second quarter, or no quarters,” guard Malik Monk said. ”It’s hard to win an NBA game like that.”
