Kings Outlast Warriors In 3 OTs

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - John Salmons hit a 17-footer with 1.6 seconds remaining in the third overtime and the Sacramento Kings held on to beat the injury-depleted Golden State Warriors 135-133 on Wednesday night.

Salmons finished with 25 points, a career-best 14 rebounds and seven assists for Sacramento, which earned consecutive victories against the Warriors for the first time since taking 15 in a row in the series from 2000-03.

Kelenna Azubuike's long 3-pointer at the final buzzer went in and out after Golden State missed several key chances in the final minute.
