Klay Thompson's 3-pointer in final seconds leads Warriors past Kings, 87-83

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.

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.
