Klay Thompson and his pup Rocco enjoyed a scenic day on a lake Friday.
Harrison Barnes had 21 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, and the Sacramento Kings overcame a cold shooting spell late in the fourth quarter to hold off the New York Knicks 103-94 on Friday night and end a four-game losing streak. The Kings made only three shots over the final six minutes but made up for it by going 7 of 8 on free throws down the stretch. ''I felt like they kind of pushed us around a little bit in the first half and we were able to respond in the second,'' Sacramento coach Luke Walton said.
Denver coach Michael Malone is a little exasperated with his players after 15 games. Nikola Jokic scored 31 points, Gary Harris added 19 and the Nuggets rallied to force overtime before beating the Phoenix Suns 130-126. The win pushed Denver above .500 for the first time this season at 8-7.
