In-game blog: Kings at Warriors

FINAL
Kings 105, Warriors 98

OAKLAND - Behind 31 points and seven assists from Isaiah Thomas, the Kings ended a two-game losing streak and a four-game losing skid on the road.

The Kings (26-46) had not beaten a team with a wining record on the road this season until defeating the Warriors (41-32).

David Lee had 20 points and 10 rebounds for Golden State, who followed up an emotional win over the Los Angeles Lakers by dropping a game most felt they could win considering the Kings have struggled on the road all season.

But Stephen Curry missed 5 of 18 shots in scoring 17 points and adding 12 assists.

The Kings won even though the Warriors scored 68 points in the paint, the most the Kings have allowed this season.

DeMarcus Cousins has 14 points and Jason Thompson has nine points and nine rebounds.

David Lee has 14 points and nine rebounds for the Warriors. Lee also has a game-high six turnovers.

The Kings have forced 14 turnovers.

HALFTIME
Kings 47, Warriors

OAKLAND - The Kings had just one turnover in the second quarter and overcome a nine-point deficit to take the lead at halftime.

The Kings trailed 33-24 early in the quarter, but rallied with their second unit. Marcus Thornton has 11 points off the bench to lead the Kings in scoring.

FIRST QUARTER
Warriors 27, Kings 24

OAKLAND - The Kings jumped out to a 12-2 lead and the Warriors answered with a 15-3 run to overcome their slow start.
