Trans. Dec 1 9:46 ET (Dec 1 9:46 ET ) SACRAMENTO – The Warriors summoned enough grit and gumption to outlast the Kings on Sunday largely because Stephen Curry realized they were short on both elements the last time they played. So Curry took action, despite his image as a baby-faced long-distance shooter. In the final, decisive minutes of a game that could have gone either way, Curry wanted the ball in his hands, clearly determined to deliver the 115-113 victory. "He took over," center Andrew Bogut said.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The last time the Golden State Warriors watched an opponent take a buzzer-beating shot at the end of a close game, Andrew Bogut was on the sideline, having fouled out, as Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook drained a game-winning 3-pointer Friday night. Less than 48 hours later, Golden State's 7-foot center stuck around on the court long enough to make a difference. Stephen Curry broke a tie by sinking two free throws with 8.6 seconds left, and Bogut blocked a driving layup by Isaiah Thomas just before the final horn as the Warriors outlasted the Sacramento Kings 115-113. En route to completing a 2-2 trip, the Warriors began their final possession with 12.6 seconds remaining after Kings center DeMarcus Cousins connected on a short hook shot over Bogut for a 113-113 tie.

Programming note: Warriors-Mavericks coverage starts at 5 p.m. with Warriors Pregame Live, only on Comcast SportsNet Bay Area The death of the Warriors' three-game losing streak took the team and its fans through several stages of anxiety before, at last, there was relief. The surprise was who provided the relief: Jermaine O'Neal. In the starting lineup for the first time this season, and only because Andrew Bogut was serving a one-game suspension, O'Neal submitted 18 points and eight rebounds as the Warriors won their first game in a week, defeating the Pelicans 102-101 on Tuesday night at New Orleans Arena.
The Golden State Warriors won the opener of a four-game trip thanks to an unlikely source. They'll try to build on their first victory in a week Wednesday night against a Dallas Mavericks team looking to bounce back from its first home loss. With Andrew Bogut serving a suspension Tuesday against New Orleans, Jermaine O'Neal got his first start with Golden State (9-6). Although he had missed the previous four games with right knee and groin injuries, O'Neal turned in a vintage performance.
NEW ORLEANS -- Just about every body part of reserve center Jermaine O'Neal hurt, but there was no stepping down from the challenge, not when the Golden State Warriors, losers of three straight, could suit up only 10 players. "I'll be honest, I have a wrist injury, I have a knee injury, a groin injury and a viral infection," the 35-year-old veteran said after Tuesday night's 102-101 gut-check victory over the New Orleans Pelicans at the New Orleans Arena. The 18-year NBA veteran, starting at center because of the one-game suspension of Andrew Bogut, didn't simply play. And, on a team dominated by the radar-like perimeter shooting of guards Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry, O'Neal made the key offensive play down the stretch to stop the bleeding for the Warriors (9-6).
