In their first game sans Monta Ellis the Golden State Warriors used a well balanced offensive attack to drop their Northern California rivals Sacramento Kings by the score of 115-89 at Power Band Pavilion.
Six Warriors found themselves in double figures Tuesday night, led by Nate Robinson, David Lee and Brandon Rush all dropping 17 points, while Dorell Wright and Klay Thompson added 14 apiece. Charles Jenkins had carrer highs of 15 points on 7-10 shooting. Just about everyone had a good night without Monta, with Dominic McQuire added 8 and Andris Biedrins six in 30 minutes of play. Stephen Curry did not suit up tonight due to injury.
The Kings were simply owned from the second half on, shooting only 40 percent from the floor compared to the Warriors 50 percent. DeMarcus Cousins led the way with 19 points and 12 assists, while Tyreke Evans added 16 and Issah Thomas 15.
The Warriors have now won three in a row as they get ready to host the Boston Celtics at Oracle Arena Wednesday night with tipoff set for 7:30 p.m. PT.
