The Warriors defeated the Kings 80-66 on Monday, extending their record in the 2013 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas to 2-0. Dating back to 2010, the Warriors have now won their last nine Summer League games.
The loss dropped the Kings to 0-2, and it happened largely in the second quarter. The Warriors turned a one-point deficit into a 14-point lead with a 29-point effort in the second.
Draymond Green scored a team-high 18 points on a 5-for-9 shooting night. He made all eight of his free throws.
"It's a big difference (this year)," Green said, acknowledging that he's working more on taking defenders off the dribble. "Now, I'm settled into my game. ... This year, I can use my year of experience against players that haven't had that."
Kent Bazemore added 15 points, six rebounds and five assists.
While they shot just .385 from the field, the Warriors forced 21 turnovers.
Kings' second-round draft pick Ray McCallum led all scorers with 23 points on 7-for-10 shooting. He also collected six steals.
The Warriors take on the Milwaukee Bucks Tuesday at 3:30 p.m. PT at the Thomas & Mack Center.
