unsigned Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman stays there remains to be seen. In
announcing the signing Monday, the Swedish Elite League team made it sound like
Franson would be around for the entire season, but his agent later clarified
that he had the option to return to North America if the lockout ended and a
contract could be reached with the Leafs. SACRAMENTO, Calif. —Keith Smart saw
a black tarp that covered an advertisement fall from the scoreboard above centre
court and ran out to grab the piece of plastic while his Sacramento Kings played
defence on the other end. Officials whistle the play dead, and Smart sprinted
back to the bench like a running back holding a football, drawing roars from a
rare sellout crowd. While Sacramentos aging arena might be falling apart, the
Kings managed to hold things together in their home opener. DeMarcus Cousins
scored 23 points and grabbed 15 rebounds, and the Kings nearly blew a 16-point
lead before holding off the Golden State Warriors 94-92 on Monday night to avoid
an 0-4 start. “I saw something that was a problem, and I had to rectify that
problem immediately,” joked Smart, the former Warriors coach. “And I think I did
a good job. I was worried about slipping, though.” Sacramento steady enough.
Cousins outworked slow-footed Andrew Bogut and every other Warriors big man to
help the Kings go on a 16-0 run during the third quarter to bust open a tie
game. Bogut hardly looked to be at full strength, though he again refused to
make excuses, saying “Im playing in the NBA. If you are out on the court, you
are healthy.” The 7-footer from Australia had 12 points and three rebounds while
playing almost 19 minutes as Golden States new franchise centre—and his
surgically repaired left ankle—eases back into shape. Klay Thompson had 22
points and David Lee scored 20 to bring the Warriors within a point in the final
minute. But Thompson missed a potential tying jumper and Stephen Curry missed a
3-pointer as time expired to seal Golden States first road loss this season.
“The game was lost when the lead went from 6 or 7 up to 16,” Lee said. “From
there, you pretty much have to play perfect basketball before you get back into
it.” After losing the first three games on the road, a return to Californias
capital city ignited Sacramentos stagnant start this season. The Kings wore
their black road uniforms for the “blackout” theme and the Warriors stayed with
their blue road jerseys. Fog machines filled the floor during pregame
introductions, which included team dancers in black hoods and Medieval gear, and
the announced crowd of 17,317 seemed to lift Sacramento throughout. Thornton
threw an alley-oop that rookie Thomas Robinson finished for a one-handed slam on
an uncontested fast break, and Aaron Brooks followed with a 3-pointer to give
Sacramento a 47-35 lead in the second quarter.. Andre Johnson Red Jersey. Thornton finished
with 16 points and Brooks had 12 points. Bogut played the first 5:17 and sat out
the rest of the first half. At one point, he also took the shoe off his left
foot while sitting on Golden States bench. The Warriors tied the score at 56-all
on Currys 3-pointer with 8:52 remaining in the third quarter. But they didnt
make another basket for more than six minutes, when the Kings scored 16 straight
points behind a flurry of defence, rebounding and overall effort. Cousins had
the final five points during Sacramentos surge, including ripping a rebound away
from rookie Festus Ezeli and drawing a foul to start a three-point play. “Ive
started the season off pretty rough,” Cousins said. “I know the way I play
affects this team in a lot of ways. I knew I had to step up tonight.” Seemed
everybody on Sacramentos side did. Smarts nifty move in the second quarter came
during his teams first-half spurt. And in separate second-half incidents, three
more pieces of plastic fell down from the scoreboard hanging above centre court.
Some fans even chanted “New Arena!” The Kings almost crumbled on the court, too.
Curry made a 3-pointer and Thompson converted a layup through traffic with a
little more than 2 minutes remaining to bring the Warriors within three.
Thompsons two free throws sliced Sacramentos lead to 93-92 with 31.3 seconds
left. After Cousins missed a difficult running shot, Golden State called timeout
with 10.3 seconds remaining. Thompson then missed a contested shot near the
free-throw line, James Johnson grabbed the rebound and was fouled. Johnson
missed the second free throw to give the Warriors another chance with 1.3
seconds to play. Off the in-bound play, Curry missed a 3-pointer over big man
Chuck Hayes as time expired. “I thought it was in,” Hayes said. “When
Klay Thompson shot the other one, I thought it was good. Those are two guys when
the ball leaves their hands, you think its good.” Golden State was trying to
start 3-0 on the road for the first time since 1994-95, when it won at San
Antonio, Denver and Utah. The Warriors won at Phoenix and the Los Angeles
Clippers already this season while losing their only home game to Memphis. The
Kings havent started 0-4 since 2008. All four of those games were on the road
that season, when Sacramento finished with an NBA-worst 17-65 record. NOTES:
Thompson played through a toothache. ... Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson chatted
with players from both teams from his courtside seat during pregame warmups. ’ ’
