Steph Curry leads Warriors in win over Kings to wrap up preseason

With a strong performance from Stephen Curry and his new-look supporting cast, the Warriors on Thursday beat the Kings 113-109 in Sacramento in their final game of the preseason.

For conditioning reasons, Draymond Green and James Wiseman did not play at all in the preseason after testing positive for the coronavirus prior to training camp.

Wiggins, in particular, led the bench by forcing his way to the rim, finding open shooters on the perimeter and playing inspired defense.

Here’s Wiggins with the starters, sprinting the floor after a Kings’ miss, creating the type of transition opportunity coaches have been asking for.

A couple of things to monitor with Oubre on defense: He tends to ball watch and get beat when his assignment cuts to the basket.

The defense is improving: After allowing a sharp-shooter in Hield to make 50% of his 3-pointers and a slasher in De’Aaron Fox to score 10 of his 17 points in the paint on Tuesday, the Warriors held a Sacramento-based shoot around Thursday morning in which coaches drilled the player on understanding personnel.
