In a fiercely contested game, Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors emerged victorious over the Sacramento Kings with a scoreline of 123-116. With this win, the Warriors have taken a 3-2 series lead in the NBA Playoffs. Despite a poor record on the road this season, the Warriors put up a valiant fight against the Kings at the Golden One Center in Sacramento. The Kings were not ready to go down without a fight, with Malik Monk and De'Aaron Fox leading the charge. However, the Warriors' superstar players stepped up when it mattered the most to keep their hopes of defending the NBA championship alive. With this victory, the Warriors are now in a strong position to close out the series in Game 6 at the Chase Center. Fans were ecstatic after the Warriors' win, with several taking to social media to express their joy. One fan dubbed it the "Draymond Green legacy game," highlighting the importance of Green's performance on the night. Steph Curry once again showcased his brilliance, scoring a game-high 31 points and dishing out eight assists. Despite struggling with his 3-point shooting, Curry made some crucial baskets in the paint to keep the Warriors' lead intact in tight situations. This was the fourth 30-point game for Curry in this series, and he has scored 30+ points in three consecutive games, all of which resulted in wins for Golden State. Klay Thompson also played a vital role, dropping 25 points in Game 5, while Draymond Green chipped in with a 20+ point game for the first time since 2019. With all their key players delivering when it mattered the most, the Warriors are looking like a force to be reckoned with once again. They will now look to close out the series in Game 6 at home and continue their quest to defend the NBA championship. Former NBA MVP Charles Barkley, who is now a commentator, has expressed his desire for the Warriors-Kings series to go all the way to Game 7. "I want seven of these," Barkley exclaimed during the post-game show. As the Warriors gear up for Game 6, fans are eagerly anticipating another exhilarating encounter between two of the NBA's top teams. Will the defending champions emerge victorious once again, or will the Sacramento Kings stage a comeback to take the series to Game 7? Only time will tell.
