2023 Kings versus Warriors - Playoffs: West 1st Round, Game 2

Jack and Jason went to game two of the first round of the NBA Playoffs: Sacramento Kings versus Golden State Warriors. The Kings got the lead in the second quarter and held off several Warriors runs over the course of the game. The Kings won by the score of 112 to 106.

Stephen Curry was the high scorer for the Warriors. He had 28 points on 9 for 21 from the field and 7 for 8 from the free throw line, but only 3 for 13 from three.

De'Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis both had 24 points for the Kings. Fox was 10 for 23 from the field, 2 for 10 from three and 2 for 2 from the free throw line. Sabonis was 8 for 12 from the field and 8 for 12 from the free throw line; he added nine rebounds.

The Kings shot 23% from three, 9 for 38!

Draymond Green was ejected with seven minutes to play for stomping on Sabonis.

I was shocked that trailing by 6 with 12 seconds to play that the Warriors didn't try to make the end of the game about free throws. That is, immediately fouling the Kings and then trying to make a three pointer after the foul shots.

Jack noted that "I get what it was like to be in the coliseum."
