| No Comments

Golden State forward Brandon Rush scored 15 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter Tuesday to lead Golden State to a 93-90 victory over the Sacramento Kings, according to ESPN.com.

Rush, who shot 4-5 from the 3-point line and 6-10 overall off the bench, helped Golden State win their seventh game of the season by sparking a 9-0 fourth quarter run. The Warriors bench outscored Sacramento's 33-21.

According to Yahoo Sports, starters Steph Curry and Monta Ellis did not play most of the fourth quarter, as Head Coach Mark Jackson rode his bench to a victory despite a near triple-double by Kings forward Tyreke Evans.

"The bench, we played pretty good. I like playing with those guys on the bench. We come out with a lot of energy," said Rush on ESPN.com.

Evans scored 22 points and 10 rebounds in Sacramento's fifth straight loss, putting them in last place in the Pacific Division, according to Yahoo Sports. Center DeMarcus Cousins scored 21 points and had 14 rebounds while shooting over 50 percent.

Golden State followed up their win Tuesday by beating Utah 119-101, according to ESPN.com. They play Sacramento again Saturday looking for their third win in a row.
