Sacramento held the Toronto Raptors to 33 percent shooting in a 94-64 win on Friday. It was the fewest points the Kings have allowed since Nov. 10, 1953, when they were known as the Rochester Royals and held the Philadelphia Warriors to 66.
The Kings now take on a Warriors team they’ve defeated 14 straight times, their longest current winning streak against any opponent. Sacramento hasn’t lost in the series since Dec. 20, 1999, and has won 31 of the last 37 meetings.
Golden State also has lost nine in a row and 18 of 19 in Sacramento.
Peja Stojakovic scored 17 points and Darius Songaila had 14 points and seven rebounds as the Kings recorded their 11th straight home victory Friday. Despite a sprained right thumb, Brad Miller had 10 points, 12 rebounds and four blocked shots.
Sacramento used just seven players while blowing a 24-point lead in an overtime loss at Portland on Thursday, but Kings coach Rick Adelman used everybody against Toronto. The bench responded with 41 points.
Songaila, acquired from the Boston Celtics in the offseason, had his most impressive game yet during a promising start with the Kings. He played 26 minutes, contributing five assists and three steals.
“As much time as I’ve spent on the side watching these guys, I’ve seen there’s so much ball movement,” Songaila said. “I’ve never been on a team where everybody, even the big guys like Brad and Vlade (Divac), move the ball like we do.”
Golden State’s Erick Dampier recorded his league-leading seventh double-double with 12 points and 16 rebounds. Dampier had 10 double-doubles last season.
Brian Cardinal scored a career-high 24 points, his fifth straight game with 12 or more, but the Warriors lacked the energy they’ve shown in recent games. Golden State had won three of its previous four.
Forward Sean Lampley signed Friday with the Warriors, who received their second special roster exemption in two days because of injuries. Dan Langhi re-signed with the team Wednesday after the Warriors received permission from the NBA to sign another player.
Lampley played last season with the Miami Heat, who released him last month. Lampley finished with 11 points and six rebounds in his Warriors debut.
