Curry had 10 assists and seven rebounds. The two-time MVP had at least 20 points and 10 rebounds in each of the Warriors’ first two games.

Jordan Poole added 22 points, and Draymond Green had 14 points, six rebounds and seven assists. Harrison Barnes scored 24 points for the Kings, and Richaun Holmes had 16 points and 11 rebounds. They are 1-2.

In Los Angeles, Carmelo Anthony scored 28 points and the Los Angeles Lakers overcame Ja Morant’s 40-point game to beat the Memphis Grizzlies 121-118 for their first victory of the season.

Morant had a chance to tie it after Kent Bazemore fouled him on a 3-point try with 2.5 seconds left, but but missed the third free throw.

Anthony Davis had 22 points and four blocks to help the Lakers rebound from two opening losses. LeBron James finished with 19 points after a slow start. Anthony moved into ninth on the NBA’s career scoring list with 27,423 points.

Miles Bridges had 32 points and nine rebounds, Ish Smith added 11 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter and Charlotte beat Brooklyn to improve to 3-0 for the first time in New York.

LaMelo Ball had 18 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Hornets, but it was their backups who led them in a dominant final quarter. Cody Martin had eight of his 12 in the final 12 minutes.

Before that, it was another night for Bridges, who had his second 30-point outing in the first three games and finished a point shy of his career high.
