Harrison Barnes completed his unexpected comeback to lead the Kings defeat the Golden State Warriors in a thrilling victory to start a seven-game road trip this season. A sellout audience of 18,064 witnessed the Kings defeat the Warriors 134-133 behind a career-high 39 points from Barnes at Chase Center in San Francisco.

In an effort to surpass his previous career best of 36 points against the Portland Trail Blazers on October 20, 2021, Barnes went 14 of 24 from the field and 7 of 12 from 3-point range. After hitting 32 points against the Atlanta Hawks on Monday, Barnes recorded his third 30-point performance of the year and his second .

To be honest, I think the most important thing is to start this road trip off well,” Barnes remarked. We discussed the significance of our current position in the season and our recent play, and I believe it was crucial for us to begin this road trip with a victory. With Fox, Sabonis, and Keegan Murray handling more of the offensive load, Barnes’ scoring average and field goal attempts have decreased this season; yet, he is still shooting 47.6% from the field and 39.9% from three-point range.

The typical spectator watches a game and thinks, “Oh, this guy scored or this guy did a lot of things,” but the other four men give a lot to make that happen, according to Barnes. When you don’t acquire those shots in a game, you might have reset the screen or sprinted to the corner, which allows someone else to score.

When someone says, “Oh, you scored a lot of points tonight,” during a game like this one, it’s because Keegan screened. Because Kevin made it through, that is. That’s because Domas let me get away with it. Since the five of us are working together, I believe it’s better to focus on performing your job and understanding that, in order to have a potent offensive, one or more of the men will eventually have to give up something. You might set a lot of screens on some nights, but other nights you’ll be able to make baskets. You might make a lot of passes or cuts that aren’t recorded in the stat sheet.

For the Kings (25–18), De’Aaron Fox scored 29 points on 9 of 16 field goals, 3 of 7 three-pointers, and 8 of 8 free throws. Domantas Sabonis finished with 13 assists, 8 rebounds, and 18 points. In order to surpass Oscar Robertson for the second-longest single-season streak in team history, Sabonis recorded his 26th consecutive double-double. The Warriors (19-23) had 33 points from Stephen Curry. At 31, Jonathan Kuminga recorded a career-high.
