The Warriors' undefeated momentum rolled on in Sacramento on Saturday night, as they captured a 103-94 victory against the Kings. Stephen Curry led the squad with 24 points, along with six rebounds and four assists, while Klay Thompson added 18 points. Andre Iguodala filled the stat sheet with 14 points, six rebounds, four assists and four steals.

What ended on a winning note started off slowly for the Dubs, as they struggled getting many of their shots to fall in the first half. Within the opening four minutes, the Kings gained a 7-2 lead, while the Warriors shot a mere 15.4% from the field. Following four lead changes, a made Stephen Curry layup, and a trey from Andre Iguodala with 2:05 remaining in the first frame, things began to turn around. The Dubs pulled ahead 20-14 before heading into the second quarter, as Iguodala and Shaun Livingston assisted each other for a dunk apiece and the squad's shooting improved to 30.8%.



Andre Iguodala tallied nine points on a perfect 4-of-4 from the field and one splash from three point land midway through the first half. Klay Thompson also stepped in with some sharp-shooting of his own in the 2:46 before halftime, with a layup assisted by Draymond Green and two three-pointers. The Dubs went on to score 19 points off of 15 Sacramento turnovers in the first half, while committing seven of their own. And despite shooting 38% from the field, the Warriors took an eight point advantage into halftime, leading the Kings 46-38.

The Kings proved they would not be put away easily in the second half, however, as they nailed 7-of-9 buckets in first five minutes of the third quarter. Marco Belinelli took the lead for Sacramento, nailing a three-pointer that gave them a 55-53 advantage over the Dubs. The Splash Brothers then traded three baskets to gain back a five point lead, before it was extended to 67-55 with 3:27 left in the third frame. A jumper from Rajon Rondo midway through the last quarter would give the Kings their final lead of the night at 79-78, before Curry nailed his first of two treys in the game to put the Warriors back up for good. The Dubs kept their lead through the remainder of the game, and Curry's second splash of the night sealed Sacramento's fate, as the Warriors secured a 103-94 win.

The Warriors remain the only undefeated team in the League as they move to 7-0 on the season, and will be back in action on Monday as they host the Detroit Pistons on Warriors Ground.
