Sacramento, CA – The shorthanded Warriors finished with six 89, at Power Balance Pavilion on Tuesday.
The big news came off the court shortly before the game, as Golden State agreed in principle to send Monta Ellis, Ekpe Udoh, and Kwame Brown to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for Andrew Bogut and former Warrior Stephen Jackson.
Golden State, which was also without the services of Stephen Curry because of a sprained right ankle, got 17 points from David Lee, Nate Robinson and Brandon Rush. Charles Jenkins chipped in 15 points, while Dorell Wright and Klay Thompson netted 14 apiece to give the Warriors their third straight victory.
Sacramento was led by DeMarcus Cousins, who scored 19 points and pulled down 12 rebounds. Tyreke Evans tallied 16 points and Isaiah Thomas added 15 as the Kings have now dropped two straight.
