Golden State Warriors sweat on Sacramento at home
Golden State gave Sacramento its third consecutive loss since the opening at home.
The Golden State Warriors won 130-125 against the Sacramento Kings in the 2022-2023 NBA regular season at the San Francisco Chase Center on the 24th (Korea Standard Time).
Golden State led the team to victory with 33 points and five rebounds, including seven three-point shots. Andrew Wiggins and Jordan Poole also scored 24 points side by side.
Sacramento completed the double-double with 26 points, 5 rebounds, and 10 assists, but the team’s defeat faded the light.
Golden State, which started the first quarter pleasantly with Wiggins’ jumper and Clay Thompson’s three-point shot, quickly widened the gap while the opponent’s outer gun did not work. However, Sacramento also followed with consecutive goals by Pax and Domantas Sabonis immediately after the operation time.
Even in the second half of the quarter, the flow of firepower continued. Golden State, which kept the lead by accumulating points little by little with free throws earned through inducing fouls, finished the first quarter with a 39-36 lead.
In the second quarter, Golden State maintained its lead with James Wiseman and Pool’s performance. Sacramento rested and Pax led the counterattack. However, Golden State, which ran away from the middle of the quarter as Curry’s outer gun fired a fire and Wiggins scored, finished the first half with a big lead of 89-71.
Golden State was strong in the third quarter as well. The attack was weaker than in the first half, but maintained the gap by suppressing the opponent’s score in defense concentration. Golden State, which maintained a good atmosphere throughout the quarter and took a double-digit lead, led the third quarter with 113-94.
In the fourth quarter, Golden State faltered due to Sacramento’s relentless pursuit. In order to give the main players enough rest, the bench members played for a long time, and the gap narrowed, and even after putting Curry and other key players back on the court, the lead was reduced to a single digit.
Even at the last minute of the game, Golden State failed to run away as Yatu repeatedly turned away from the rim. In the meantime, Sacramento showed concentration and caught up to four points. However, Golden State, who spent time calmly, managed to secure the victory with a Wiggins steal.
