Warriors Pull Off Upset Over Cleveland 120-114

By Barbara Mason

Friday night the Golden State Warriors (23-23) took on the Cleveland Cavaliers (28-19) in the last game of this current road trip. The Warriors were short- handed resting the majority of their starting roster. Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins did not take the court tonight. The Cavaliers were a challenge and under the best of circumstances this game was a tough one for the Warriors but they pulled it off with a 120-114 win over the Cavs.

Game recap: Golden State got off to a great start winning the opening quarter 33-28 and leading at the half 64-59 after a 31-31 tie in the second quarter.

This game got very interesting in the third quarter when the Warriors outscored Cleveland 34-27 leading 98-86. A win against the Cavaliers would be a shocker of an upset. The Warriors had hurt themselves with 11 turnovers in the second half, but Golden State had six players in double digits and the Warriors were trying to finish this road trip on a winning note against a very tough Eastern Conference squad.

The Warriors had under four minutes in the fourth quarter to hang onto a 114-106 lead. Cleveland had trailed by twenty points in the second half but was making a run in the closing minutes. The Cavs are an incredible fourth quarter team and this quarter was littered with empty possession after empty possession for Golden State.

They desperately needed some offense in the final two minutes of this game. Ty Jerome found that offense to give the Warriors a 117-110 lead. With 14.6 left on the clock the Warriors picked up a six point win and the Warrior bench had pulled off the best road game of the season in an unlikely upset. The Warriors defense really stepped up and Golden State had their first winning road trip of the season.

Jordan Poole was the high for this game with 32 points and without him this win would not have happened. Ty Jerome had 22 points, Donte DiVincenzo had 17 and Kevon Looney had 17 rebounds in the game. The bench had some great play from Jamychal Green with 13 points and Anthony Lamb with 12.

The Warriors had some beautiful ball movement throughout the game and shots from downtown were on task shooting for 53.5% with 23 shots made from beyond the arc.

The Warriors will enjoy the flight home after this amazing win. They will take on the Brooklyn Nets at Chase on Sunday evening. Tipoff is scheduled for 5:30.

Kings Handle Cleveland 106-95

By Barbara Mason

Friday night the Sacramento Kings (14-10) took on the Cleveland Cavaliers (16-10) at Rocket Mortgage Field House. The Kings were without De’Aaron Fox who has been dealing with right foot soreness for awhile now. He has not been right for a few games especially offensively. He will really benefit from some time off which will serve not only himself but the team better down the road.

Donovan Mitchell (out with a hamstring injury ) or Kevin Love for Cleveland so both team’s season leaders Mitchell and Fox missed Friday’s game. Mitchell had a monster game Tuesday night shooting for 43 points so he will be missed by Cleveland. The Kings moved fast on offense and created some key shots in their 106-95 win over the Cavaliers.

The Kings started Davion Mitchell, Kevin Huerter, Harrison Barnes, Keegan Murray and Domantas Sabonis. Defensive rebounding for Sacramento will play a huge role in this game.

The Kings came out fast in the first quarter taking a 24-11 lead with 3:00 left on the clock. The Kings Barnes and Murray were perfect from downtown. Murray hit four three’s and Barnes had 2 of 2. Sacramento also had 12 rebounds to Cleveland’s seven rebounds. The Kings led after the opening quarter 31-20. Sacramento had done exactly what they needed to do to start this game.

The Kings were able to hold a double digit lead minutes into the second quarter. That lead began to slip away with seven minutes left in the half, although, they held onto a 37-30 lead. The Kings started missing shots and turnovers played a role in the Cavalier surge. The Kings had scored 31 points in the first quarter and 18 in the second. The 15 point lead the Kings had held evaporated and at the half the two teams were tied at 49.

The third quarter remained close and at the finish, the Cavaliers held an 80-79 lead. The Kings continued to fight hard and going into the fourth quarter it became apparent that Sacramento had the ability to win this game. They had to clean up the turnovers and avoid forcing shots and continue to challenge Cleveland on every possession.

With under two minutes left in the game the Kings had taken back the lead 101-95. They fought hard blocking shots, drawing fouls and sinking three’s. Sacramento took a 103-95 lead with 35.4 ticks left on the game clock.

The Kings had a great offensive effort with Barnes the high score shooting for 20 points. Huerter had 19 and Murray and Sabonis each had 18 points. Sabonis also had an amazing 19 rebounds.

Caris Levert was the high for the Cavaliers with 22 points.

The Kings continue on this road trip traveling to New York to take on the Knicks Sunday afternoon. Tipoff is scheduled for 3:00 PM.

Warriors win nail-biter beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 106-101

Somehow, the Warriors found a way to come back from a seven-point deficit late in the fourth quarter as they down the Cleveland Cavaliers 106-101. The game was a definite nail-biter. There was no question about that whatsoever. Both teams played great defense.

The Cavaliers did their best to keep Golden State guard Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, and Jordan Poole bottled up for most of the game. The Warriors had to find a way to stop the bigger Cavs’ team from scoring inside the paint. It was a tough task. Yet, the Warriors went on a 17-4 run late in the fourth quarter to win.

The game was nip and tuck for the first 45 minutes. The teams were tied at 25 at the end of the first period. The Cavaliers outscored the Warriors by four in the second stanza to finish the first half leading 52-48.

Curry led the Warriors with 15. Wiggins had nine, Poole 12, Thompson three, and Anthony Lamb seven. Draymond Green did not score, but he had seven rebounds and eight assists. In his first season with the Cavaliers, Donovan Mitchell led his team with 14. Evan Mobley, Darius Garland, and Kevon Love each added eight.

The Warriors went up by three, 55-52, early in the third quarter. The Cavaliers went on a 13-0 run to lead 66-55. The Warriors were ice cold. The Warriors started to connect on three-point shots. Wiggins, Curry (2), Poole, and Lamb made threes. The Warriors trailed came with one 75-74. Cleveland answered with a bucket to finish the third quarter leading 77-74.

Both teams knew the fourth quarter would be a fight to the finish. Could the Cavaliers stave off the Warriors? Could the Warriors stop the Cavalier offense? Would Cleveland find a way to keep Curry from beating them? Neither team would give an inch. The Warriors took the lead 82-81 as they rallied from an 81-76 deficit. Poole connected on a three, and Wiggins made a two-point shot to tie the game.

Kevon Looney put the Warriors ahead 83-81. The Cavaliers rallied to lead 89-85. Curry made it 89-87. The Cavs scored the next six points to lead 93-87. The Warriors were unhappy as the Cavaliers Caris LeVert made a three-point shot in that sequence. The referees called Poole for a flagrant foul.

LeVert was awarded two free throws, and Cleveland retained possession of the ball. It could have been a six-point play. LeVert made one free throw. The Cavaliers scored the next basket to lead 95-97. There were less than four minutes left to play. Many of the fans were getting the feeling that the game was slipping away. Keep in mind the Warriors have the greatest shooter in the history of the NBA.

Curry worked his magic against the Sacramento Kings last Monday night. Could he do it again? Could Cleveland find a way to stop him? The Answer to the first question was yes. Curry did it again. No, Cleveland could not stop him. Curry and the Warriors went on a 16-3 run to win the game 106-101.

Game Notes and Stats- With the win, the Warriors are 5-7. The Cavaliers dropped to 8-4.

Curry finished the night with 40 points, four rebounds, and five assists. Curry made six threes. Curry scored over 30 or more points in nine of the 12 games. Wiggins added 20, Green had a double-double with ten rebounds and 13 assists. Poole added five points. Poole knocked down four threes.

Lamb will be getting more playing time in the second unit. Lamb finished with ten points and made two big three-point shots. Thompson had nine. Thompson contributed with a three in the fourth quarter, and his defense on Mitchell helped the Warriors secure the win.

The Warriors held the Cavaliers’ offense to 40% from the floor: the Cavaliers made eight threes, the Warriors 15. The Warriors were 49% from the floor. The one negative was the number of fouls committed. The Cavaliers had 26 free throws and made 19. The Warriors made 11 in 14 tries.

The Cavaliers had five players in double figures. Mitchell led his team with 29 points, ten rebounds, and nine assists. Mitchell made three threes. Big Evan Mobley had a double-double with 20 points and 12 boards. LeVert had 11, Jarrett Allen 13, and Darius Garland 15. Kevin Love, coming off the bench, had nine.

The Warriors travel to Sacramento to face the Kings Sunday night at the Golden 1 center. The game will start at 5:30 pm. After Sunday’s game, the Warriors return home to face the San Antonio Spurs Monday night at the Chase Center. Tip off at 7 pm.

SACRAMENTO–The Sacramento Kings were back in action on Wednesday night in Sacramento. The Kings last played on Monday in San Francisco when they took on the Golden State Warriors. The Kings played an excellent and hard-fought game! Unfortunately, Stephen Curry exists, and the NBA refs are atrocious.

The Kings lost that game 116-113 in a very upsetting fashion for the Kings.

Game recap: On Wednesday, the Kings welcomed the upstart Cleveland Cavaliers into town at 7 PM PST. The Kings defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 127-120 on Wednesday night.

In the first quarter, the Kings came out swinging. The Kings put up 34 points in the third quarter compared to the Cavs 29 points. The Kings could have finished the quarter up by a more significant margin, but they didn’t finish strong. Domantas Sabonis started the game hot, scoring eight points in the first.

In the second quarter, it was a similar tale. The Kings started the quarter hot and cooled off toward the end. However, Keegan Murray led the Kings in the final minutes to stretch out the lead. The Kings defense struggled to contain the Cavs in the first half, but the offense was producing at a high clip.

The Kings managed to outscore the Cavs 69-58 in the first half, putting them on a good path to victory. The Kings were led in the first half by De’Aaron Fox, who scored 13 points for the Kings. However, the Kings have struggled to come out in the second half with energy; Wednesday night was a good test of that.

In the third quarter, the Kings defense continued to struggle. The Kings offense was the only reason the Kings were still in the game. The Kings allowed the Cavs to score 35 points in the third quarter. No doubt coach Mike Brown was disappointed by the defensive performance so far. However, the Kings still led the Cavs 97-93 heading into the game’s final 12 minutes of action.

In the fourth quarter, it was a back-and-forth battle. It was intense until the end of the game. Both teams played their hearts out, but ultimately, only one could emerge victorious. In the game’s final minutes, the Kings came up clutch to beat the Cavs.

Kevin Huerter came up with a clutch three-pointer as Malik Monk distributed the offense. The Kings outscored the Cavs 30-27 in the final quarter to come away with the win. The defense for the Kings was lacking all game. Yet, when the defense mattered most, the Kings got the job done down the stretch.

The Kings leading scorer was Domantas Sabonis, who dropped 21 points. Donavan Mitchell led the Cavs in defeat, dropping 38 points on the Kings. Nevertheless, it was a big win for the Kings, who improved to 4-6 on the season.

Up Next: The Kings travel to LA to take on the Lakers on Friday at 7 PM PST.

On Headlines Sports podcast with Jessica:

#1 Former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said that he declined to sign a separation notice after leaving the Dolphins that would have silenced him from speaking out about the team discriminating by firing him. Flores by not singing the separation notice left millions of dollars behind but it also freed him up to speak out against the Dolphins firing him.

#2 Green Bay Packers Aaron Rogers quarterback said that he’s not sure if he’s returning next season. One of the key things that could keep Rogers in Green Bay is if the Packers sign wide receiver Devante Adams. Adams is to become a free agent in March and a lot hinges on Adams coming back to keep Rogers in Green Bay.

#3 In the MLB lockout negotiations the players union agreed to go down from 80% to 75% of the players that could go for arbitration after two seasons but wanted to up on the minimum salary structure. MLB saw this as a step back as the two side who met Tuesday are digging in.

#4 Its hard to believe Jessica but a 1997-98 Kobe Bryant Metal Gems card sold for $2 million to a private buyer the deal was brokered by PWCC Marketplace the deal was the highest purchase for a Kobe basketball card.

#5 Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James was said to be using the NBA All Star game last Sunday to put the Lakers on notice that he might want a trade in the off season. LeBron 37 is in the last year of his contract and said that he wanted to go out playing with his son before he retires and said during the All Star break that he would consider coming back to Cleveland to finish his career.

An Evening To Remember at Chase Warriors Handle Cavs 96-82

By Barbara Mason

Sunday night fans got to celebrate the biggest game in Chase history. It seems as it we have been waiting a lifetime for the return of the Golden State Warriors (30-9) Klay Thompson. All the blood, sweat and tears that this guy has endured will come to fruition tonight. Win or lose, this game will be an unforgettable welcome home for the phenomenal Klay Thompson. The splash brothers are back!!! What a way to welcome them back as they earned a 96-82 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers (22-18)

“Tonight is about showing our appreciation for what he has had to go through individually and express our affection for him. In a lot of ways it will be a very difficult game to lock in and focus on. That’s the challenge for the group amidst all this emotion,” said Head coach Steve Kerr before the game.

The Warriors took on the Cleveland Cavaliers looking for number 30 of the season. The Warriors will have to focus with all the hoopla that will be going on but they will not be alone. The Cavaliers will also have to block out what will be the loudest crowd that they have ever encountered.

The Warriors will be looking for some better shooting from downtown. They have come off of two forgettable games this season, not only losing two in a row but also two tough games shooting seven of 33 against the Pelicans on Thursday night and five of 28 against Dallas on three’s.

At 11:13 in the first quarter we got to see Klay’s first NBA bucket in 2 1/2 years; a textbook floater in traffic. The Cavaliers will have the challenge of trying to contain both Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. After eleven minutes it became clear that the three-point drought had come to an end as Curry started the game four for four from downtown. The Warriors led after one quarter 24-21.

At the half the Warriors continued to hold the lead 51-46. In the second quarter Thompson had his first dunk and his first three of the game. The Warriors were only shooting 37% but it was their defense that kept the score in favor of Golden State. Kevon Looney had 10 rebounds in the half and Porter had six for a great defensive effort. Curry finished the half with 18 points, the only Warrior in double digits.

The Cavaliers had managed to hang with the Warriors until the third quarter. Golden State came unleashed in the third and extended their lead to 79-60. Looney had an amazing 16 rebounds in the quarter close to his all-time high.

The Cavaliers made a nice bid cutting the Warriors 24 point lead to ten in the fourth quarter but it just wasn’t enough. The Warriors shooting had cooled off in the final quarter but picked back up in the closing minutes. The final was 96-82. .

What could be better than seeing Curry and Thompson together again? Why a win with Curry and Thompson playing their first game together and that’s exactly what they got, the first of many. Thompson was on fire with his signature snarl evident throughout the game.

He had 17 points in 20 minutes of play and didn’t look the least bit winded. Curry finished with 28 points. Looney was amazing breaking his previous rebound record clocking 18. The entire team had a great defensive showing which was needed since the team only shot 39%.

“I was nervous to start. I am so grateful for this fan base. There were four or five shots that I should have made but I’m just thankful to be out here,” said Thompson after the Game. “:I am excited for the future. I’m just happy.”

Next up for the Warriors will be the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday. Tipoff is schedule for 5:00 PM.

It was a tale of two halves, but in the end the same result for Sacramento.

The Cleveland Cavaliers bench helped deliver a 117-103 over the Kings on Saturday evening at Rocket Mortgage Field House.

Sacramento have lost two games in a row and four out of its last seven. Cleveland is on a hot streak as they have three games in a row and seven out of its last nine.

Cleveland (16-12) jumped out to a fast start with two runs, an 11-3 run and a 7-3 run to jump out to 18-6 lead.

The Cavaliers shot 60% from the field during the first quarter. Small forward Issac Okoro led the team with 11 points. Rookie center Evan Mobley had five points.

Buddy Hield provided the offense for Sacramento (11-16) in the first quarter with eight points.

It got worse for the Kings in the second quarter as Cleveland went on a 12-3 run in in a span of 1:35 early in second quarter to go up 55-37. The Cavaliers finished the half on a 18-4 run in the final two minutes to go up, capped off by a Mobley dunk from Darius Garland to end the half up 81-52, their biggest lead of the game.

The Kings had allowed 335 points in their last 10 quarters.

The second half saw Sacramento come out with a more aggressive attitude as they started out the third quarter with 10-0 in the first 3:20.

The Cavaliers went ice cold in the second half as they were shooting 7/28 with 5:45 left in the fourth quarter. Sacramento had outscored Cleveland 18-4 with under four minutes left to play in the fourth quarter.

Sacramento shrunk the deficit to 107-99 with just over two minutes left in the game.

However, that was as close as the Kings would get, as the Cavs went on a 10-2 run with 1:09 left to put the game away that included two three pointers from Ricky Rubio.

Rubio finished with 15 points off the bench. Cedi Osman led the Cavs bench with 18 points and Kevin Love chipped in with 11 points.

Okoro led Cleveland’s starters with 20 points. Jarret Allen has 19 points and Garland chipped in with 16.

Hield led the Kings in scoring with 21 points off the bench and Donovan Mitchell had 14. De’Aaron Fox led the starters with 13 points.

Fourth Quarter Onslaught Wins One For the Warriors 104-89

By Barbara Mason

After a convincing win against the Brooklyn Nets Tuesday night, the Warriors (13-2 ) continued their road trip in Cleveland taking on the (9-8) Cavaliers and their winning ways with their second win on this current road trip 104-89.

This game could not have been any closer with the Cavaliers totally dominating on the glass. The Cavs led after one quarter 29-27. At the half Cleveland still held the lead albeit a slim one, but a lead nonetheless 54-51.

The Warriors came out sluggish in the first quarter and the Cavaliers outshot them from downtown. It is true that Cleveland is playing much better basketball but the rebounding by Golden State was not very good.

After two quarters Stephen Curry was 4-7 on three pointers and had 15 points while off the bench Nemanja Bjelica had 16 points. It was Bjelica to the rescue because for the most part it was Curry alone who was scoring for the starters. Darius Garland had the high score for Cleveland with 18 points.

Despite being known for being a fast break team, the Warriors only had five. They would have to do a better job rebounding in the second half as well as making better choices in their shot making.

Many times after an outstanding win teams come out sluggish in their next game. Mid-way through the third quarter the Cavs were completely boxing the Warriors out and the Warriors were not defending the rim.

Golden State found themselves trailing with under four minutes left in the quarter 74-65. Second chance points were 19-2 in favor of Cleveland. After three quarters the Cavs had extended their lead 81-68.

In the fourth quarter Curry found his three and the Curry Flurry was heating up with a lot of ground to make up. Golden State tied the game at 81 with Andrew Wiggins coming alive. It was a 15-0 run for the Warriors in the fourth quarter. The Warriors were making the Cavs work hard offensively. Golden State had finally taken the lead 90-86 with just over six minutes left in the game.

From down thirteen to up thirteen the Warriors had flipped the fourth quarter with 1:24 left in the game. Golden State was going to win an improbable game. It was ugly for three quarters and amazing in the fourth.

Cleveland had no answers to the Warrior onslaught. Golden State did absolutely everything right in the final quarter when it really mattered. The final was 104-89 in a game where the Warriors were completely outplayed in three quarters.

Curry finished with 40, and Bjelica with 14 points off the bench. The Cavaliers did everything possible to win this game through three quarters. They fell apart in the fourth quarter letting the Warriors walk away with the win.

Tomorrow afternoon the Warriors will be taking on the Detroit Pistons. Tipoff is scheduled for 4:00 PM PST.
