It was a decidedly different weekend for the Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors. The Warriors picked up two much needed wins over the Denver Nuggets and Indiana Pacers while the Kings fell to the Pacers and were stomped by the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Warriors got a big break in their Thursday match-up with the Nuggets when Andre Iguodala's three-pointer at the end of regulation was waved off because the buzzer hit before he released it. David Lee led all scorers and rebounders in that game with 31 points and nine boards. The Warriors made things a little less stressful in their 103-92 win over the Pacers Saturday night. Klay Thompson led the Warriors with 22 points on the evening.
The Kings, meanwhile, had a much rougher weekend. They lost to the Pacers, 97-92, on Friday night thanks to a big 31-point, 11-rebound night from Pacers forward David West. Just a day later in Southern California, they dropped their third straight game, a 116-81 loss to the Clippers, thanks to seven Clippers finishing in double figures on the night.
