LAS VEGAS - Stephen Curry showed the Warriors staff something on Saturday.
His left ankle was hurting. His shot wasn't falling. His defense was suspect.
“But he never dropped his head,” said Warriors assistant coach Keith Smart, who is coaching the Warriors' summer league installment at UNLV. "He showed a lot of poise."
Curry scored 27 of his 29 points in the second half, including all six Warriors points in overtime. His scoring outburst, next to another dominant performance by second-year forward Anthony Randolph (24 points, 10-for-13 shooting, 11 rebounds, five blocks), was enough to give the Warriors a 98-95 overtime win over the Sacramento Kings.
With 6:55 left in the first quarter, Curry tweaked his left ankle, which he first sprained at practice Thursday night. He returned some three minutes later, but he struggled. He was 0-for-8 with two points in the first half, with many easy shots rolling in and out.
But in the second half, he showed some life.
Charlotte Bobcats unrestricted free agent swingman Cartier Martin, playing with the Warriors' summer-league team, scored 27 points on 7-for-15 shooting.
