game. he scored a team-high 30 points tonight. he and drummond are both excellent as we've come to expect know. i know andrew wiggins tonight know jordan poole. but i'll tell you what, as you mentioned during those highlights, a lot of these younger players and older players. if you're talking about andre iguodala really stepped up off the bench. 47 bench points tonight that is exactly the type of play that makes this warriors team so good. it's because they don't just have to rely on steph and draymond to get it done. auto porter junior had 12 points. gary payton, the second had 12 points all. i had those 10 points. and so this was a real team effort showing that even when the kings are hanging around like they did for most of the game. you can come on some of that worry or second unit to get it done. here's what steve kerr had to say. >> every guy came off the bench played well for gary was defensively. on the boards you know, 3 steals doing what gary does. and i thought andre was just brilliant tonight. john dre. and you know, knocking down a couple but. as defense
is still just world class, it was great. and keep going down the list. so been a huge contribution. the bench and we needed it. obviously you know, guys being out. >> hard not to talk about those 47 points. but you really can't discount the defensive contributions from this unit either porter junior, for instance, had a season-high 3 blocks tonight. so they're really getting it done on both ends of the court. and it's just great to see this team being able to gel with their superstars and with the players are coming off the bench as well. so good win for the warriors here tonight. and they're now to know against the kings on the season. here at chase center. jason, back to you. >> all right, kate, before i let you go, on a lighter note, we saw special helper on the bench today dj green dream on green's son. now in all seriousness. i know you are in the post-game presser with steve. how much do you think
these players really appreciate the family atmosphere that steve kerr brings to the organization. >> oh, they absolutely love it. i mean, you can see the guys out there high-fiving little dj green on the floor tonight. every time he came over and brought them a towel or another piece of equipment. damian leave talked about his young son. he's got a 3 week-old baby. he talked about him in the press conference tonight. so that is clearly a priority for this team. and i think it makes the guys happy and want to play for steve kerr. so, hey, maybe that's a bit a big piece of the puzzle here in the recipe for their success. >> awesome kate will get home safe. thank you for your reporting tonight that is your look at sports. we'll be right back after the brea
