SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- David Lee had 23 points and 11 rebounds, Klay Thompson scored 18 points and the Golden State Warriors held off the Sacramento Kings 101-92 on Wednesday night in a game both teams played short-handed. Stephen Curry added 13 points and eight assists for the Warriors (32-22) in the first game following the All-Star break for each team. Golden State is 3-0 against Sacramento this season. With both centres out with injuries and a shorter roster from trades each team made earlier in the day, the depth of the Warriors was just too much for the Kings to overcome. Isaiah Thomas had 26 points and seven assists, and Travis Outlaw scored 18 points for a Sacramento (18-36) team thats headed for an eighth straight losing season. Quincy Acy grabbed a career-high 12 boards to help the Kings outrebound the Warriors 49-35, but Sacramento committed 21 turnovers, fading in the closing minutes. The game was played in the aftermath of a busy day for both Northern California teams. The Kings traded guard Marcus Thornton to Brooklyn for veterans Jason Terry and Reggie Evans in the afternoon. Just before tipoff, the Warriors acquired point guard Steve Blake from the Los Angeles Lakers for reserves Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks. Andrew Bogut also missed his fifth straight game for the Warriors with a left shoulder injury. DeMarcus Cousins, who strained his left hip flexor in Sacramentos final game before the break in New York, also sat out. Both centres are day to day. The Kings dropped to 0-8 without Cousins this season but still led 76-75 entering the fourth quarter. The Warriors quickly put together a pair of scoring spurts to pull away. Lee converted a layup through traffic, Thompson made a 3-pointer and Andre Iguodala hit a fadeway jumper in an 8-0 run that gave Golden State an 86-79 lead early in the fourth. After the Kings started to rally, Iguodala found Draymond Green for a dunk, and Lee followed with a layup that put the Warriors up 94-84 with 3:28 remaining that all but sealed it. Most of the game played out in similar fashion. The Warriors went ahead by 10 points in the first quarter and 15 in the second, spreading the floor and moving the ball fast without any true centres on the court. The Kings had come back each time, though, playing just like the two-faced team theyd been before the All-Streak break -- prone to scintillating scoring spurts but, at times, lacking defence and discipline -- that buried them at the bottom of the Western Conference standings. Sacramento scored the final nine points of the third quarter, including the last six by Thomas, to take a 76-75 lead before the Warriors pulled away for good.

He wasnt mad. Just cold. The Denver Broncos quarterback rarely took his reddened hands out of the pouch around his waist Wednesday following a two-hour practice in 16-degree, windy weather. After nine minutes of chatting about a showdown with Indianapolis in an AFC divisional playoff game Sunday, he went inside to get warm, softly muttering, Its cold out here, huh? Mannings numbers tend to dip when the thermometer does. Hes 12-13 in his career when the temperature is 40 degrees or below, according to STATS. This should warm up Manning and Broncos fans, however: Forecasters are calling for a warm-up this week and balmy conditions are expected on game day, with the high in the 40s, maybe a cool breeze and no precipitation. Peyton is going to go out there and play well, declared running back C.J. Anderson. But it takes a team and we have to help him. Even if a cold front were to suddenly descend upon the city — this is Denver, after all — the Broncos are built for harsher conditions these days. They no longer rely so heavily on Mannings right arm but on a revamped running game and a dominant defence that features five Pro Bowlers and a couple of notable snubs. Weve played in about every scenario that I can think of in my three years here, tight end Jacob Tamme said. Weve had the unbelievably cold and the absolutely beautiful. We have a team built that can win in any conditions. And thats what you need right now. Although Mannings record is sub-.500 in chilly conditions, his overall numbers really arent that ghastly. Hes thrown 43 touchdown passes and 27 interceptions while completing 62.6 per cent of his passes, according to STATS. His completion percentage since joining the Broncos in 2012 is 67.7. When the wind picks up, though, Mannings numbers dont exactly soar. Hes 3-6 with gusts of 20 mph or more and has thrown 11 interceptions and just seven TD passes. His completion percentage is 58.5 per cent.dddddddddddd But its not supposed to be that windy Sunday against the Colts. Kyle Fredin, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said the latest forecast models have the wind blowing in the 10-to-15 mph range. If that is indeed the case, Manning is 10-11 when the winds are 15 mph or more, with 29 TD passes and 23 interceptions. I think we can win this year in any conditions, Tamme said. Since a Nov. 16 loss in St. Louis when Manning threw the ball 54 times, the Broncos have worked on being more balanced. Theyve run the ball 186 times over the last six games and attempted 194 passes. I feel pretty good physically, Manning reiterated Wednesday. Like all players, Ive battled through some injuries. I think the bye week came at a good time for us to give some guys a chance to get healthy. Weve tried to find different ways to win football games and hopefully that prepares us well when you get into these playoff games and anything can go on. Different games take on different identities. You never know what its going to be but I think weve proven we can win games differently and hopefully that serves us well potentially on Sunday. Manning also has a stalwart defence to help out, which features Pro Bowlers Chris Harris Jr., Von Miller, Aqib Talib, T.J. Ward and DeMarcus Ware. Defensive lineman Terrance Knighton and linebacker Brandon Marshall also played at a Pro Bowl level but werent named to the squad. The Colts are a big-time team, too, and its always hard to beat a team twice, said Miller, whose squad knocked off the Colts 31-24 at home in the opening game of the season. Weve got to take advantage of the opportunity now, and thats where everybodys mindset is at. After all, at 38, Manning is trying to supplant his boss, John Elway, as the oldest QB to win a Super Bowl. I think our team has played with a sense of urgency all season, to tell you the truth, Manning said. That is what were going to have on Sunday because its helped us win a lot of games this year.
