THE Golden State Warriors turned on the style in the third after an anemic first half, ripping the Sacramento Kings, 109-86, on Wednesday in Oakland (Thursday, Manila time).
Thompson spoke with UPROXX Sports recently about his Three-Point Shootout strategy, loving the freedom of the All-Star game, getting comfortable with Kevin Durant, and the importance of rest for the Warriors as they wrap up the regular season. Thompson hit 12 of 17 shots in the game, including 7 of 12 from beyond the 3-point arc.
Green was whistled for a foul on DeMarcus Cousins who got the bucket (who about that shot?!). They were his ninth and 10th technical fouls of the season. 16 techs in a season triggers an automatic one-game suspension from the league, as Cousins could tell you. They will hit the Midseason with a record of 47-9, not just best in the Western Conference but the National Basketball Association. TURNING POINT Thompson's three to give the Warriors a 60-57 lead early in the third became the start of an absurd 22-0 run that took a close but bland game and made it a lopsided and bland game.
Matt Barnes came off the bench to lead the Kings with 15 points, while Darren Collison scored 14.
