OAKLAND, Calif. Willie Anderson Jersey . - After reserve Marreese Speights finished a one-handed dunk over Travis Outlaw in the fourth quarter, teammates Andre Iguodala and Stephen Curry jumped off the Golden State Warriors bench and ran onto the floor in celebration. Speights stood at half court and encouraged the announced sellout crowd of 19,596 — or what was left of it, anyway — by waving his arms in the air. His teammates laughed, and so did almost everybody in the arena. Everybody, that is, except the Sacramento Kings. Klay Thompson scored 21 points, Curry had 13 points and five assists and the Warriors moved closer to securing a playoff berth by routing the Kings 102-69 on Friday night. "It was loud in there and my teammates were all the way on the court," said Speights, who had 12 points and 10 rebounds. "It was good to see support like that." The Warriors led 59-27 at halftime and 75-33 early in the third quarter, turning the game into a laugher. It was the fewest points Golden State has allowed this season and the fewest points Sacramento has scored. Not only did the Warriors (47-29) match last seasons win total, they also gained ground in the Western Conference playoff race. Golden State moved within 1 1/2 games of fifth-place Portland with six games to play after the Trail Blazers lost to Phoenix. "I just got a feeling well win more games than we did last year," Warriors coach Mark Jackson joked. "I got a strong feeling about that." DeMarcus Cousins finished with 19 points and 11 rebounds, and Rudy Gay scored 10 points for the rebuilding Kings (27-49), who looked lost and lethargic against their Northern California rivals. Golden State outshot the Kings 44.7 per cent to 32.1 per cent, which was a season low by a Warriors opponent and a season low for Sacramento. The Warriors also outrebounded the Kings 58-44 and forced 16 turnovers to sweep the season series (4-0) for the first time since going 5-0 against Sacramento in 1991-92. "We were tentative. I thought we played soft for long stretches," Kings coach Michael Malone said. "We were not aggressive, we were very hesitant and they had us on our heels." The Warriors crushed the Kings even while playing without starting centre Andrew Bogut and power forward David Lee. It was the fifth straight game Lee has missed because of a strained right hamstring and the fourth game in a row Bogut has sat out with a bruise in his pelvis and groin area. Jermaine ONeal had 13 points and nine rebounds, and Draymond Green added 10 points and 10 rebounds to help Golden State outscore Sacramento 54-28 in the paint. With Golden States starting big men sidelined, the coast was clear for Cousins to dominate down low. Instead, Sacramentos centre picked up two fouls in the first 1:48, Malone was called for a technical foul trying to defend him and the Warriors shut down Sacramento the rest of the quarter — and most of the game. The Kings started 1-for-11 shooting, including missing 10 straight shots and committing eight turnovers during a span of nearly nine minutes. The Warriors whipped the crowd into a frenzy after converting all those turnovers into a flurry of fast-break dunks. "It happened pretty fast, but once it started to happen, I just think guys got rattled," said Cousins, who spent most of the fourth quarter on the bench with a towel over his head. "We just never really recovered." With most of the team struggling and point guard Isaiah Thomas out for the sixth consecutive game with a bruised right quadriceps, the Kings provided little punch — and even less fight. Green caught a full-court pass from ONeal for an uncontested layup early in the third quarter. ONeal put his hands in the air as if he was signalling for a touchdown. The Warriors went ahead 75-33 moments later and spent most of the fourth quarter laughing and smiling on the bench, especially after Speights slam. NOTES: The fewest points the Kings had scored in a game previously this season came in a 99-79 loss to San Antonio on March 21. ... The fewest points the Warriors had allowed was in a 76-74 loss to the Spurs on Nov. 8. ...

MUNICH - Slovakian qualifier Martin Klizan defeated defending champion Tommy Haas 6-3, 6-2 Saturday to set up a BMW Open final against top-seeded Fabio Fognini. Air Max 270 Bowfin Gris . Klizan needed just 64 minutes to beat the second-seeded German veteran, who was clearly struggling with the right shoulder injury that had kept him out of action since March 13, when he lost to Roger Federer in the fourth round at Indian Wells. "It wasnt a great match for the fans because Haas couldnt play like that. Now Im looking forward to the final," the 111th-ranked Klizan said. Fognini needed just over an hour to ease past German qualifier Jan-Lennard Struff 6-3, 6-1 in the other semifinal. Fognini beat Klizan in their last three meetings but the Slovakian defeated the 15th-ranked Italian in his only previous ATP World Tour final, at St. Petersburg in October 2012.

Kerry wants to answer your emails at email@example.com. Hi Kerry, I looked for a comment online from you on the Nazem Kadri hit on Cody Ceci on Saturday night from the Sens/Leafs game, but didnt find one! I have always respected your on-ice decision skills, so I would like your opinion regarding this hit. Was this a case of the player turning his back when he was going to be hit or did Kadri hit a player in a vulnerable position? Thanks,Randy Eades Hi Randy: I did post a late comment @kfraserthecall on Twitter that you must have missed. Sorry it was late but I was engaged in Twitter combat (and being duly vilified) by Canadiens fans over the Brendan Gallagher episode against the Jets! With regard to your question, Cody Ceci was positioned facing the end boards in order to retrieve the puck after it was turned back from the corner by teammate Jared Cowen and as he was being pressured on the forecheck by Nikolai Kulemin of the Leafs. Ceci didnt intentionally turn his body at the last second to set himself up for a hit by Nazem Kadri. That had no bearing on why a penalty call did not result. Instead, Ceci was facing square to the end boards waiting for the puck to arrive on his stick just as Kadri angled from the front of the net and delivered a body check that should have resulted in a boarding minor penalty. The initial point of contact delivered by Kadri was to the left hip of Ceci and not on the numbers. The finishing upward push exerted by Nazem Kadri caused the Ottawa player to tumble forward into the boards. Let me explain for Senators coach Paul McLean and the Ottawa fans why the call was missed by the referees. When you re-examine the video clossely, you will see that referee Paul Devorski, working past his 1,500th game, pivoted out from the corner toward the end faceoff circle in order to vacate the space that Jared Cowen and Nikolai Kulemin would occupy in pursuit of the puck. Air Max 270 React Doré . The referee then rotated his body 360 degrees in a drift back below the goal line but retained visual focus on both Cowen and Kulemin with a fixed glance over his shoulder well after Cowen dished the puck back toward Ceci. It is clearly evident from the footage that referee Devorski did not turn his head and visual focus toward the action near the net until after Kadri had delivered the illegal hit on Ceci. All the referee witnessed at this point was Ceci down on the ice and Kadri in possession of the puck just prior to a tape-to-tape pass out front to Joffrey Lupul for the Leafs goal. I am positive that referee Devorski would have deemed the hit by Kadri to be worthy of a boarding minor infraction if he had been focused on and witnessed the contact. Since the hit happened directly behind the net the back referee would have at best, an obstructed view if he was looking in that direction. His primary responsibility and area of coverage however was on the action away from the puck; which at that point would have included Cowen and Kulemin in the corner. While we do not see the back referee in the footage, it is conceivable that both refs failed to transition their area of focus once the puck was thrown back behind the net by Cowen. If that were the case, both refs maintained visual focus on the two players in the corner and did not observe the Kadri boarding on Ceci. I hate to be bearer of bad news coach Paul, but that is how the boarding penalty to Kadri was missed and resulted in the Leafs goal that tied the game at two! ' ' '
