In a heated environment, the Warriors defeated the Kings 2-1.

NBA – Despite the absence of Draymond Green on the roster and Gary Payton II, the Warriors dominated the match with their defense from the opening minutes and cruised to an easy victory (114-97)!

The Warriors began the game with a magnificent defensive tenacity, despite being pressured by a packed Chase Center. With a starting five that includes Andrew Wiggins in lieu of Draymond Green and Jordan Poole bolstering the "back court," they force the Kings to miss five shots and limit their shot percentage to 39%. The Warriors, on the other hand, dominate the offensive rebound and abuse the long-range shot, but their address allows them to acquire a nine-point lead. (29-20).

De'Aaron Fox then passes second with six consecutive points that relaunch Sacramento, but the Warriors maintain control thanks to two more award-winning baskets by Andrew Wiggins and Stephen Curry. (39-30). Both defenses then assume control, and the Kings miss a chance to put pressure on Golden State. Instead, Stephen Curry drives the nail to put the Warriors ahead by 12 points at the intermission. (53-41).

In the third quarter, the game's momentum shifts. The Warriors opened the period with four consecutive layups, while Sacramento increased the tempo and attacked in transition. At each Kings mini-run, however, Golden State employs the superb bench players Curry, Poole, and even Moses Moody to widen the gap. (82-64). Six essential Fox principles are required to limit the breakdown. (84-72).

Steve Kerr's team began the fourth quarter in earnest, outscoring the Kings 21-11 to establish a 22-point lead (105-88)!

Stephen Curry's sixth three-point victory clinched the Warriors' victory. On Sunday, they will face Draymond Green and possibly Gary Payton II in an attempt to level the series.

What must be preserved
The tone is set by the Warriors' defense. Despite the omissions of Draymond Green (suspension) and Gary Payton II (illness), Golden State entered the game with a level of aggression and defensive rigor befitting a sudden-death contest. They limited the Kings' shot success to 33%, lost 10 balls, and primarily defended by minimizing errors. The Kings have attempted only eight consecutive shots and scored 41 points in the first half, their lowest total of the season through the first 24 minutes of a game.

The equivalent of a third quarter time is a circle attack. In the first half, only 26 points were scored by both teams. Mike Brown and Steve Kerr were instrumental during the third quarter. The Kings pushed the ball on a marked basket and offensive rebound to assault the defense of the Warriors and go for 12 free throws. And Golden State utilized Kevon Looney's high screens, both on and off the ball, to break up the Sacramento defense. Each team tallied 16 points during the third period.

Moses Moody, Donte DiVincenzo, and Jonathan Kumaa answer the summons. According to popular belief, second blades perform better at home. In Sacramento, the triumvirate of DiVincenzo, Kuminga, and Moody gave Steve Kerr crucial minutes to compensate for the absences of Draymond Green and Gary Payton II. They scored 25 points on threes, 13 of which came from Moody, who was instrumental in the third quarter while Curry, Wiggins, and Looney sat on the sideline.
