Sacramento, CA (Sports Network) - Aaron Brooks, one of seven Kings scoring in double figures, hit a critical 3-pointer in crunch time to help Sacramento beat the Golden State Warriors for the second time this season in a 131-127 offensive showcase between Pacific Division foes.

The crowd at Sleep Train Arena, which housed a large contingent of Warriors fans, saw both teams shoot 50 percent from the field and 24-of-45 (53 percent) from 3-point range.

Brooks finished with 23 points, DeMarcus Cousins added 24 -- 14 from the foul line -- and Marcus Thornton netted 19 in his return from a four-game absence for the Kings, who snapped their five-game losing streak.

Stephen Curry led Golden State with 32 points before fouling out with 2:13 remaining. David Lee and Jarrett Jack chipped in 29 and 28 points, respectively, in the setback.
