Sacramento used a 13-1 run in the second quarter to take the lead and maintained a 47-44 lead at the half. The Warriors grabbed the lead back with a quick burst to start the third but the Kings came right back, getting a pair of 3-pointers from Thomas during a 13-0 burst to take a 64-52 lead.

Thomas hit two more 3-pointers to close the third and send Sacramento into the fourth quarter with a 77-66 edge.
