In order to end a five-game losing run, the Golden State Warriors defeated the Sacramento Kings 116-113 on Monday night thanks in large part to a season-high 47 points from Stephen Curry, who also made seven 3-pointers.

Steve Kerr, the Warriors coach, said Steph was “awesome.” He is among the all-time best players. He performs brilliantly on so many occasions; this even appeared like a special occasion for him.

Before Curry sank two free throws with 1.3 seconds left to seal the victory, the Warriors’ Andrew Wiggins and Klay Thompson combined for 25 points and 16 points, respectively.

Draymond Green contributed an additional 11 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists. With 37 seconds remaining, Green slammed down a dunk to increase the Golden State lead to three.

After sitting out Friday’s game against New Orleans, Curry, Thompson, Green, and Wiggins were reinserted into the lineup.

Thompson’s anterior cruciate ligament and Achilles tendon ailments in 2019 and 2020 prevent him from competing on consecutive nights. Similar restrictions apply to Green due to a back issue he sustained last year. Due to stiffness in their elbows, Curry and Wiggins were both given the day off.

Sacramento (3-6) had a chance to equalize before Kevin Huerter’s failed 3-point attempt on the game’s last possession thanks to De’Aaron Fox’s 28 points and six assists.

On the final possession, Mike Brown stated, “I feel horrible for our guys. “I think Kevin being fouled makes it difficult to be a Sacramento King. The referee denied that it was a foul when I questioned him if it was. It was definitely a foul.

Off the bench, Malik Monk finished with 24 points, six rebounds, and four assists. Adding 19 points, 14 rebounds, and 6 assists were Domantas Sabonis.

We’re getting there, Monk remarked. We are so near. By seeing us play, you can tell.


The Kerr addressed the audience before to the game and urged spectators to cast their ballots on Tuesday. Kerr, along with other athletes and coaches, donned a shirt that said “Vote.” Tuesday is a non-playing day for the NBA.

With all 30 clubs playing today and none of the 30 teams playing tomorrow night, Kerr said that the league was effectively advertising itself throughout the nation. “It’s symbolic, but it also provides the players, coaches, and staff members of the team the opportunity to cast their votes tomorrow if they are in their home districts… We anticipate a large turnout tomorrow at the polls.
