. -- Klay Thompson scored 27 points, Stephen Curry had five 3-pointers among his 22 points, and the Golden State Warriors limited Sacramento to 34.5 per cent shooting from the field Saturday night in a 98-87 victory over the Kings. After combining for 46 points on 17-of-26 shooting from the field through three quarters, Golden States backcourt duo mostly watched from the bench in the final period while Warriors reserves finished off the lopsided victory. David Lee had 15 points and 12 rebounds for the Warriors, who shot 51.3 per cent from the field. Curry added a game-high 12 assists. Rookie Ben McLemore led the Kings with a career-high 19 points, while Travis Outlaw had 15 points and 12 rebounds and Jason Thompson had 12 points and 10 rebounds. Golden States lead never fell below 16 points in the fourth quarter until Sacramento reserves ended the game with a 13-4 run over the final minutes, handing Sacramentos Michael Malone a loss in his first game as a head coach in the matchup of Northern California rivals. Malone, in his first year leading the Kings, was a Golden State assistant the past two seasons. Thompson followed his career-high 38 points in Golden States season-opening victory Wednesday over the Los Angeles Lakers with another high-scoring effort that had a sellout crowd roaring at Oracle Arena He wasnt the only one. Curry, who on Thursday became the fifth player in NBA history to make nine 3-pointers in three career games, threatened early to do it again. He made hit four 3s while scoring 17 points in the first half, keying a 13-2 run late in the second quarter that gave Sacramento its largest lead of the first half at 49-28. The Warriors scored 17 points in the final 4 minutes of the half. DeMarcus Cousins of the Kings scored the first five points of the third quarter, then Marcus Thornton stole an errant pass by Curry and drove the length of the court for a layup that quickly cut Sacramentos 20-point halftime lead to 56-44. But after a timeout, Thompson quickly drained two 3-pointers to begin 15-0 run that gave Golden State its biggest lead, 71-44 midway through the third quarter. McClemore provided an early thrill for Sacramento by beating the first-quarter buzzer with a 56-foot 3-pointer from beyond the half-court line. That was one of a career-high three 3-pointers by Sacramentos first-round draft pick, who had 13 points in the first half to keep the Kings within striking distance. McClemore answered a 3-pointer by Golden States Andre Iguodala in similar fashion midway through the second quarter, pulling Sacramento back within 36-26 after the Warriors threatened to pull away. Centres Andrew Bogut and Cousins waged an individual battle in the paint , bumping and grinding against each other throughout the evening. Bogut scored the games first four points over Cousins down low in the first 40 seconds, then later ripped the ball from his Sacramento counterparts hands for a steal amid heavy contact between the two midway through the second quarter. Cousins looked on with dismay, then went to the bench after committing his third foul on Bogut 17 seconds later on the other end of the court. That standoff came during a 13-4 Golden State run during which the Warriors took control. Bogut later stuffed Cousins while he drove to the basket to begin a Golden State fastbreak the other way. Cousins, leading Sacramento with a 27-point average entering the game, was limited to eight points in 18 minutes. NOTES: Warriors F Harrison Barnes (toe inflammation) missed his third consecutive game to begin the season, but he participated in the teams morning shootaround, is getting close to game shape and could return early during Golden States four-game trip that begins Monday at Philadelphia. . When asked pre-game if he considers the Kings one of Golden States top rivals, Jackson laughed and said, "Come on, man. Yankees-Red Sox is a rivalry. Ali-Frazier was a rivalry. No. Neither of us has done anything." . The Warriors debuted their alternative uniforms with white short-sleeve jerseys that they will wear during their six Saturday home game this season. . Sacramento owner Vivek Ranadive served as vice chairman of the Warriors before purchasing the Kings earlier this year.

. Ramirez is still hitting behind Puig, only now they are in the third and fourth spots, and the change is starting to generate positive results for manager Don Mattingly. MINNEAPOLIS -- The shots were clanking and the frustration was mounting for J.J. Barea during a three-game shooting slump that was getting him booed off his home court with regularity. With the lowly Milwaukee Bucks hitting everything in sight, Minnesota coach Rick Adelman gave Barea some time with the Ricky Rubio in the same backcourt, and the throwback lineup helped jumpstart Barea and the Minnesota Timberwolves. Kevin Love had 27 points, 10 rebounds and six assists and Barea scored 19 points to lift the Timberwolves to a 112-101 victory over the Bucks on Tuesday night. After going 5 for his previous 25, Barea hit seven of 10 shots to help wake up the sluggish Wolves and Kevin Martin scored 26 points to help them finish a four-game homestand at 2-2. After carving a niche for himself in this league as a helter-skelter, mini-shooting guard who thrives when playing alongside a bigger point guard, roster limitations have forced Adelman to play Barea as a more prototypical backup point guard this season. But Milwaukee plays a smaller backcourt, which allowed Adelman the chance to pair Barea and Rubio. "I love it. I miss it," Barea said. "I miss playing off the ball a little bit, especially with Ricky. When Im making shots, its great for our team." Brandon Knight scored 21 points for the Bucks (13-51), who led at halftime and were looking for their first set of back-to-back victories this season. But after scoring 61 points in the first half and leading by 11 points in the second quarter, the Bucks were outscored 19-4 to start the fourth quarter. "Fourth quarter, we couldnt really get anything going," said Bucks guard Nate Wolters, who had 14 points. "Weve had problems all year in the fourth quarter closing games. We gave ourselves a chance to win, having a lead going into the fourth, but just couldnt get it going and win." Rubio had 11 points and 10 assists and three steals for Minnesota. "J.J.s a great scorer and sometimes he needs to play the (shooting guard)," Rubio said. "But its hard to do it when they have a (big) two. But I like playing with him. He made shots today and he played a lot." The Timberwolves scored 30 points off of 15 turnovers by Milwaukee to offset some poorous defence that allowed the Bucks to shoot 52.

. per cent. They trailed by six points at halftime, but Love and Dante Cunningham fueled the game-clinching run with a flurry of jumpers that pushed the lead to 105-88. "There was no pace and we let them get defensive stops," said Bucks forward ZaZa Pachulia, who had a career-high 10 assists with nine points and six rebounds. "They are one of the best teams in transition and they got out in front of us and got easy buckets in transition. We just werent able to get back." The Wolves (32-31) entered the game five games behind Memphis for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. In all likelihood, they kicked away their chance to make the post-season for the first time in 10 years with losses to the Knicks and Raptors earlier in this homestand. A loss to the worst team in the league at home surely would have ended any slim hopes that remained. The Bucks have been playing better basketball, at least offensively, since a trade last month brought Ramon Sessions and Adrien from Charlotte and sent disgruntled guard Gary Neal to the Bobcats. Even so, they were playing the second night of a back-to-back while the Wolves were playing their fourth straight game at home. The Bucks also were missing starting power forward Ersan Ilyasova because of a sore ankle. But as the Timberwolves have done all year long, they delivered a listless defensive effort to give their opponent life it had no business having. Milwaukee made its first 12 shots, the longest streak without a miss to open a game in the league this season, and shot over 71 per cent in the first quarter to jump out to a 33-22 lead. Barea made his first six shots in the second quarter, including a layup that tied the game at 49. NOTES: Wolters, from nearby St. Cloud, Minn., had a large contingent of fans who came both from his hometown and from South Dakota. Wolters starred in college at South Dakota State. ... Timberwolves F Luc Richard Mbah a Moute hosted a dozen young fans from the south of France. The fans made plans to travel to the U.S. to see him play for Sacramento against New York. But Mbah a Moute was traded to Minnesota in December, so he picked up the tab to change their flights. Wholesale NFL Jerseys
