OAKLAND -- Let's take a look down the roster after the Warriors' 95-86 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night in an exhibition game at Oracle Arena:Stephen Curry: It was a solid outing by Curry - 15 points, seven rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes. Curry's assist total was a little low because Monta Ellis did a lot of handling of the ball.Monta Ellis: Ellis seemed to be playing more of his game than he did on Friday night. What that means is he made himself a factor even though he didn't shoot the ball particularly well (5-for-13). At times, Ellis' quickness on defense bothered Tyreke Evans.Dorell Wright: At this point, you'd have to say Wright is the Warriors' best all-around player. He had his second straight game where he filled up a few boxscore columns: 13 points, four rebounds and four assists.David Lee: It was a tale of two halves for Lee. In the first half, Lee took just two shots in 17 minutes. But Lee had a big third quarter, scoring 11 points and grabbing six rebounds, helping lead the Warriors to a 16-point lead after three periods.Andris Biedrins: Biedrins got into early foul trouble, picking up three personals in 10 minutes. He wound up making little impact in his 16 minutes.Vernon Goodridge: Goodridge played five minutes and even converted a feed for a layup. But once Jeff Adrien got into the game Goodridge's night was done.Vladimir Radmanovic: Radmanovic played just nine minutes and scored four points.Jeff Adrien: He made an impact on the interior, no doubt, and might have been the most effective player on the floor. Adrien had 11 points, 15 rebounds and a block in 22 minutes.Charlie Bell: He made only one of seven shots in 18 minutes.Reggie Williams: Williams wasn't his explosive self off the bench on Sunday. He went only 2-of-7 from the field in 17 minutes.Aaron Miles: He played 12 solid minutes as the backup point guard and did his usual thing: Play stead and not turn the ball over.Brandan Wright: It was not a good night for Wright. He didn't play in the first half, then was inserted late in the third quarter. But after Wright missed a chippie and threw a bad pass, coach Keith Smart removed him after two minutes. Wright got back into the game but made little impact.Jeremy Lin: He played just one minute in the fourth quarter, and then Keith Smart removed him after a pair of turnovers.Dan Gadzuric: Did not play because of coach's decision.Lou Amundson: Did not play because of lower back stiffness.Ekpe Udoh: Did not play because of a left wrist injury.Rodney Carney: Did not play because of a right hip contusion.
