Klay Thompson bounced back, Stephen Curry recovered and the Warriors used their shooting and stifling team defense to bury the Sacramento Kings 98-87 before a sellout crowd Saturday night at Oracle Arena.

Thompson, who followed up a 38-point opening night with only 10 in defeat Thursday against the Clippers, finished with a game-high 27 points.

Curry, whose 38-point game Thursday was stained by 11 turnovers, added 22 and 12 assists and generally reduced sloppy plays.

The shooting of the Splash Brothers pretty much silenced any provocative talk and squelched the high emotions that were so visible when the Warriors and Kings met for a preseason game 10 days ago in Sacramento. Both teams simply played basketball, with the Warriors clearly superior.

The Kings, coming off a loss to the Clippers on Friday, were led by rookie guard Ben McLemore's 19 points, with Travis Outlaw adding 15. None of the Sacramento starters reached double figures and the team shot 34.5 percent.
