OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Klay Thompson scored 21 points, Stephen Curry had 13 points and five assists and the Golden State Warriors routed the Sacramento Kings 102-69 on Friday night.
The Warriors led 59-27 at halftime and 75-33 early in the third quarter. It was the fewest points Golden State has allowed this season and the fewest points Sacramento has scored.
The Warriors (47-29) matched last season’s win total and gained ground in the Western Conference playoff race. They moved within 1 1/2 games of fifth-place Portland with six games to play after the Trail Blazers lost to Phoenix.
DeMarcus Cousins finished with 19 points and 11 rebounds, and Rudy Gay scored 10 points for the rebuilding Kings (27-49), who looked lost and lethargic against their Northern California rivals.
