It’s always the ones you never figure, right? The Warriors had been playing terrific, winners of 12 of their past 13, and they were headed to Sacramento to play the Kings — a team they’d been dominating in the recent past.
But in a quirky, off-balance, something-not-quite-right game, the Kings beat the Warriors 109-106 in overtime. Coming in, the Warriors had beaten the Kings 13 straight times. Nevertheless, the Kings got solid performances from several players; the Warriors from just a few.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr got ejected; Draymond Green got hurt late in the second quarter and didn’t make it to the bench to start the second half; Stephen Curry had a potential game-winning 3-pointer go in and out, then missed a little peeper that could have given the Warriors a late lead.
Lots happened, including the Kings outplaying the Warriors.
