Golden State won 93-90 at home on Tuesday, sitting its starters for almost the entire fourth quarter. The Warriors (8-13) employed the same strategy Saturday, and it nearly worked.

The Kings then scored the first nine points of overtime for a 111-102 lead.

Jason Thompson had 15 points and 16 rebounds for Sacramento, which had a 55-36 rebounding advantage.
