Last night's game: The Golden State Warriors defeated the Sacramento Kings 93-90 on Tuesday at Oracle Arena. View the box score.

Game coverage:

  • "The Kings had 16 turnovers through three quarters," Jason Jones (@mr_jasonjones) writes in today's newspaper recap. "That allowed the Warriors to stay in the game even though they were shooting poorly."
  • "(Gavin) Maloof said any reports the team is considering replacing basketball president Geoff Petrie are 'totally false,'" Jones writes in today's newspaper.
  • "Despite the disappointing record, the Kings have two easily identifiable pieces around whom to build - Tyreke Evans and DeMarcus Cousins," writes Ailene Voisin (@ailene_voisin) in a post-game blog post.
  • "Isaiah Thomas is becoming the Kings go-to guy in the fourth quarter," writes Jones in a blog post this morning.
  • "The Kings have now lost 5 games in a row, but are entering a softer part of the schedule that they should hopefully take advantage of," writes Akis Yerocostas (@Aykis16) in a blog post for SB Nation affiliate Sactown Royalty.
  • "The Kings fourth-quarter offense was a train wreck," writes Scott Levin (@KingsSLev) writes in a blog post for FanSided affiliate A Royal Pain. "The Warriors turned up the defense, and Sacramento failed to adjust."
  • James Ham (@James_Ham) break down last night's game in a blog post for TrueHoop Network affiliate Cowbell Kingdom.
  • "It took coach Mark Jackson well into the third quarter Tuesday to find an advantage to exploit. And when he found it, he rode it," writes Marcus Thompson II (@gswscribe) in today's Contra Costa Times.
  • "Coach Mark Jackson picked an unfortunate night to reaffirm his confidence in the Warriors' tiny backcourt," writes Rusty Simmons (@Rusty_SFChron) in today's San Francisco Chronicle.
  • "There has been a growing suspicion that the Warriors' bench is their secret weapon, defensively superior to the starting five and worth a longer look as the season goes on," writes Bruce Jenkins in today's San Francisco Chronicle.
