Klay Thompson’s game-winner lifts Warriors to 102-101 victory over King
The Golden State Warriors defeated the Sacramento Kings 102-101 on Wednesday night at Chase Center, despite a poor overall play.
Golden State was usually careless, committing 17 turnovers during the contest. Steph Curry was a major offender, costing the Warriors seven possessions.
Curry missed, but Draymond Green grabbed the offensive rebound and passed the ball to Kevon Looney for an easy layup to push Golden State ahead 92-89
After another couple minutes of back-and-fourth baskets, the Kings had the ball and led 99-98 with 60 seconds left in regulation.
Malik Monk drove inside, but Green blocked his shot, resulting in a shot clock violation. Going the other way, Curry drove inside and drained a teardrop to put the Dubs up 100-99.
The Kings rallied back, as Domantas Sabonis banked in a mid-range shot with less than 10 seconds remaining to put Sacramento ahead 101-100.
Monk had 0.2 seconds left on the clock, but he was unable to get a shot off on the inbounds play.
The Warriors will now return on the road for another East Coast tour. On Friday, they will take the court against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The first game is slated to begin at 5:00 PM Pacific.
