In-game blog: King vs. Warriors

FINAL
Warriors 98, Kings 88

The Kings (2-1) lost for the first time this preseason thanks to poor shooting (33.3 percent) and turnovers (23). The offense was rarely in sync and the four Warriors scored in double figures, led by Stephen Curry with 19. David Lee added 16 points and 14 rebounds.

Isaiah Thomas led the Kings with 13 points off the bench. Marcus Thornton added 1 points off the bench. The only starter to core in double figures was Jason Thompson with 11.

THIRD QUARTER
Warriors 78, Kings 71

The Kings were as close as three points, but cannot overtake the Warriors. And they have themselves to blame.

The Kings are shooting 33 percent (20 for 60) and have 17 turnovers that have led to 17 points for the Warriors.

Offensively the Kings are fighting themselves. Sometimes they want to use good passes and move the ball and find a good shot. Other times the Kings are intent on rushing shots and making it tough on themselves.

Jason Thompson leads the Kings with 11 points. Stephen Curry has a game-high 17 points for Golden State.

HALFTIME

Key stats: The Kings are still matching field goals and turnovers (13 apiece).
Summary: The Kings are shooting 34.2 percent and have only four assists. The Warriors have made 6 of 14 three pointers.

Stephen Curry has 12 points for the Warriors.
