Sacramento, CA (Sports Network) - Aaron Brooks, one of seven Kings scoring
in double figures, hit a critical 3-pointer in crunch time to help Sacramento
beat the Golden State Warriors for the second time this season in a 131-127
offensive showcase between Pacific Division foes.
The crowd at Sleep Train Arena, which housed a large contingent of Warriors
fans, saw both teams shoot 50 percent from the field and 24-of-45 (53 percent)
from 3-point range.
Brooks finished with 23 points, DeMarcus Cousins added 24 -- 14 from the foul
line -- and Marcus Thornton netted 19 in his return from a four-game absence
for the Kings, who snapped their five-game losing streak.
Stephen Curry led Golden State with 32 points before fouling out with 2:13
remaining. David Lee and Jarrett Jack chipped in 29 and 28 points,
respectively, in the setback.
