Marcus Thornton, Sacramento Kings Bring Home 104-103 Win Over Warriors

Marcus Thornton went bonkers in clutch, and the Sacramento Kings won their final road game of the season 104-103 over the Golden State Warriors. Thornton scored 11 of his 21 in the fourth quarter as the Kings earned a hard-fought win despite 23 turnovers. The clinching play was a ridiculous crossover to stepback 20-footer that left Stephen Curry in Pinole. (Contra Costa jokes!)

Not only did Sacramento survive the turnover problems -- Golden State only had 10, by the way -- but the Kings won despite an off-night from Tyreke Evans, who shot 3-13 for 14 points and five assists. DeMarcus Cousins had a good if turnover-heavy performance with 15 points on 5-10 shooting, 13 rebounds and five assists. Beno Udrih (14 points, six assists, 6-9 shooting) and Jason Thompson (14 points, eight rebounds, 7-8 shooting) were money off the bench.

We have two games left this season, both at home, both against great teams. The Kings have showed remarkable pride to end this bizarre season. Let's show them the same kind of pride. Let's fill the arena. Here we stay, Sacramento.
