Golden State Warriors
SACRAMENTO -- The Sacramento Kings' home opener went well on the court, but not so well above it. DeMarcus Cousins scored 23 points and grabbed 15 rebounds, and Aaron Brooks scored six points down the stretch to lift the Kings over the Golden State Warriors 94-92 Monday night at sold-out Sleep Train Arena. It was the Kings' first victory of the season after they opened with three losses on the road. The win wasn't sealed until Golden State's Stephen Curry missed a desperation 3-pointer off an inbounds pass at the buzzer. The 28th season opener in the California capital came with a lot of uncertainty, specifically if the Kings would remain in the city long term amid speculation that club owners Joe and Gavin Maloof want to move. The loyal Sacramento fan base received glimpses of just how outdated the arena is. Three black tarps on the overhead jumbotron, covering the logos of sponsors that declined to renew deals, fell to the floor due to a bad tape job. The...

On Monday night, the Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors did battle, all-California style.
With 5:30 left in the second quarter, a banner fell from the scoreboard at the newly named Sleep Train Arena (no, that's not a joke) in Sac-town that fluttered its way down towards midcourt. Kings head coach Keith Smart ran on to the hardwood to pick up the fallen...
Heh. I mostly write obtuse and silly titles to amuse myself. Otherwise, what's the point? That said, sometimes with young dumb teams ugly wins are about the best you are going to get. And, well, an ugly win that was far too difficult and came down to two missed shots by Steph Curry and Klay Thompson are a tough way to get victories. Against the top tier, it won't happen....
