Through 3 Quarters
Down two at the end of last quarter, the Golden State Warriors have now snagged the lead. They currently hold a 90-88 lead over the Sacramento Kings.
Golden State has been led by point guard Stephen Curry, who so far has posted a double-double on 27 points and ten assists in addition to six rebounds. A double-double would be Chef Curry's third in a row.
Small forward Harrison Barnes has led the way so far for Sacramento, as he has shot 5-for-8 from downtown and has recorded 24 points and four boards.
Here's an interesting fact: the Dubs also had a two-point lead after the third quarter in the teams' last meeting.

What to Know
The Sacramento Kings may be playing at home again on Sunday, but the experts are forecasting a three-point loss. The Kings and the Golden State Warriors will face off in a Pacific Division battle at 9 p.m. ET at Golden 1 Center. Golden State should still be riding high after a victory, while Sacramento will be looking to get back in the win column.
Sacramento came up short against the Utah Jazz this past Friday, falling 110-101. Sacramento's defeat came about despite a quality game from small forward Harrison Barnes, who dropped a double-double on 25 points and 15 rebounds.
Meanwhile, the Dubs sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 115-113 win over the Los Angeles Clippers this past Thursday. Golden State can attribute much of their success to point guard Stephen Curry, who shot 8-for-13 from downtown and finished with a double-double on 45 points and ten boards.
Sacramento was close but no cigar when the two teams previously met in April as they fell 117-113 to the Dubs. Maybe the Kings will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
