The Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings each are on winning streaks as 2012 comes to a close.
The Bay Area tag-teamed on two beat downs of the visiting Boston Celtics this weekend as the Golden State Warriors blew out the Celtics, 101-83, on Saturday behind 22 points from Stephen Curry and then the Sacramento Kings played possibly their best game of the season in also drubbing the C's, 118-96, on Sunday.
The Warriors win came on the heels of their 96-89 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday and the Kings pulled out another big win, this time a 106-105 last-second shot upset of the New York Knicks. The Kings are now 11-19 after winning two straight and the Warriors are 21-10, on a three-game winning streak and are the No. 5 seed in the Western Conference.
Elsewhere in the league saw the Los Angeles Clippers push their winning streak to 17 with wins on Friday and Sunday over the Utah Jazz. The Memphis Grizzlies defeated the Denver Nuggets, 81-72, on Saturday. The Miami Heat lost two straight games, the second coming at the hands of the Milwaukee Bucks, 104-85, on Saturday and the Oklahoma City Thunder blew out the Houston Rockets, 124-94.
