Stephen Curry tallies another 30 as Golden State routs Sacramento

STEPHEN Curry followed up a career-best 62-point effort with 30 more in just 31 minutes on Monday night, propelling the Golden State Warriors to a second straight run-away win, 137-106 over the Sacramento Kings in San Francisco.

Seven Warriors, including three reserves, scored in double figures. Golden State tied the franchise record for points at home team in the 2-year-old Chase Center — set one night earlier — while snapping a three-game losing streak against the rival Kings.

Harrison Barnes, a member of Golden State’s 2015 championship team, had 18 points for Sacramento, sharing team honors with De’Aaron Fox.

Riding the momentum of a 137-122 home win over Portland on Sunday, the Warriors wasted no time blitzing the Kings 24 hours later, scoring the first eight points of the game on 3-pointers by Draymond Green and Kelly Oubre Jr. and a 2-pointer by James Wiseman. They never looked back.

Curry, who had 30-plus points in each half of his performance on Sunday, totaled 23 in the first 24 minutes this time, helping Golden State run up a 68-48 advantage.

The second half was never appreciably closer, with the Kings suffering a third consecutive loss in the process.

Curry shot nine-for-18 overall and five-for-12 on 3-pointers for the Warriors, who at 4-3 went above .500 for the first time since the end of the 2019 season.

Oubre, who had made just two of his first 30 3-point attempts as a first-year member of the Warriors, finally caught fire with four in six tries en route to 18 points, while Andrew Wiggins (16), Eric Paschall (14), Michael Mulder (12), Kevon Looney (11), and Wiseman (10) also scored in double figures for Golden State.

Mulder did all of his scoring on four-for-four shooting from beyond the arc, helping Golden State go 23-for-43 to outscore the Kings 69-30 from deep.

Buddy Hield was a third King to score in double figures with 10 points as Sacramento capped a winless trip that began with consecutive losses in Houston.

Barnes and Marvin Bagley III shared game-high rebound honors with Curry with nine apiece, while Fox collected a team-high seven assists, one fewer than Curry’s game-high total.

The Kings had swept last year’s three-game season series among the NBA’s two Northern California teams. — Reuters
