Warriors edge Kings in a low-scoring thriller

OAKLAND — Klay Thompson made the go-ahead 3-pointer with 7.5 seconds remaining and finished with 20 points to lead the Golden State Warriors past the Sacramento Kings, 87-83 on Wednesday night.

Thompson then forced Tyreke Evans into an errant layup on the final possession to seal a sloppy win for the Warriors over the Western Conference’s worst team. After dropping the first two in Sacramento this season, Golden State overcame 18 turnovers and 36 percent shooting against its Northern California rival.

Jason Thompson had 17 points and eight rebounds, and Patrick Patterson added 15 points for Sacramento, which has lost 11 of its last 13 games. DeMarcus Cousins had five points and four rebounds and sat out the entire fourth quarter.

David Lee had 17 points and 10 rebounds, and rookie Harrison Barnes added 14 points for the Warriors, who are 2-0 since a four-game losing streak. They held the Kings to 40 percent shooting and forced 15 turnovers.

The long-range shot bailed out the Warriors again.

Stephen Curry came off a pick-and-roll and made a 3-pointer to give Golden State an 82-78 lead with a little more than 2 minutes remaining. The Warriors stopped Sacramento, but then had a shot-clock violation just before Jarrett Jack’s layup.

Jason Thompson hit a jumper and Patterson followed with a 3-pointer in front of the Warriors bench to put the Kings ahead 83-82. Patterson mouthed a few words and flicked three fingers back at Golden State’s bench as he skipped down court.

A few seconds later, Lee found Thompson standing in the corner, and the second-year guard’s swish gave the Warriors an 85-83 lead, holding his hand in the air as the sold-out crowd announced at 19,956 roared to its feet.

Evans missed a difficult layup in Thompson’s face, Draymond Green grabbed the rebound and made both free throws to seal the victory.
