The Golden State Warriors defeated the Sacramento Kings 116-115 in a preseason game on Wednesday night. Steph Curry showed off his legendary ability to take over a game, and Chris Paul finally got shifted to the bench.
Golden State’s inconsistent defense had highlighted their previous preseason games, but offensive struggles driven by careless turnovers were the story on Wednesday. Trayce Jackson-Davis did a solid job slowing down Kings All-Star center Domantas Sabonis, and Steph Curry scored all 13 Warriors points in the final two minutes.
Sacramento led 114-110 with 45 seconds left in regulation, but Curry cut the lead to one with a wild bank three and then made a 30-foot stepback three in the face of Fox to give the Warriors a 116-115 lead with five seconds remaining.
