For the second straight outing against the Sacramento Kings, the Warriors' Steph Curry was on fire from behind the arc. For the second straight game, Curry managed to hit 10 threes in a winning effort against the Kings this season, and he finished with a game-high 36 points across 36 minutes in Thursday night's two-point victory. Three-point shooting ended up being the difference in Thursday's game, as while the Kings lost by just two, they held a lead for most of the game, and Golden State's sharp shooting allowed them to come back with ease. As a team, the Warriors not only made 19 three-point shots in the winning effort, nine more than Sacramento, but they shot a very impressive 41.3 percent from behind the arc while doing so. Six different Warriors players hit a three Thursday, with Draymond Green, who has had his struggles this season, going a surprising 3-of-5 from downtown.
