Andrew Bogut's late block helps Warriors escape with win over Kings

SACRAMENTO — Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, shot the lights out, but the Warriors relied on a clutch defensive play from Andrew Bogut to preserve a thrilling 115-113 win over the Sacramento Kings on Sunday.

Curry, who had a game-high 36 points, made two free throws with 8.6 seconds left to give the Warriors the winning margin.

But Bogut blocked a shot by a driving Isaiah Thomas and then hoisted the ball into the air as the horn sounded. The Warriors ended their trip with a 2-2 mark.

"Big-time play," Warriors coach Mark Jackson said of Bogut's block. "I thought his defense was stellar."

In front of a crowd of 15,588, Thompson and Curry combined for 64 points. They were 13-for-19 shooting from 3-point range.
