(The Sports Xchange) - After watching his MVP light up the scoreboard with an array of long-distance bombs, short flips and ridiculous layups, Golden State Warriors coach Luke Walton summed up Stephen Curry's night relatively simply.

"I'm glad he's on our team," Walton said. "He's pretty impressive."

Curry torched the Kings for a game-high 38 points and added 11 assists in a 128-116 victory over the Kings at Sleep Train Arena, symbolizing his team's dominance not just against Sacramento but the rest of the NBA.

"Shoot, you know what the best one was," Warriors forward Draymond Green said when asked about Curry's night.

"The one where he looked like he didn't have control --- I didn't think he had it --- and then he grabbed it, throws it up and it goes in."

That third-quarter shot, in which Curry dribbled, lost the ball, dribbled again, lost it again, then regained control and flipped up the ball, was one of 12 field goals for Curry on 21 attempts.

"We really moved the ball well and got good open shots," Green said. "Guys knocked them down."

Green added 25 points and nine rebounds as the Warriors improved to 35-2, the best mark by any NBA team after 37 games. Golden State also beat Sacramento for the 12th consecutive time in three seasons, completing a four-game sweep for the third straight season.

"I think the film will show that we played hard and had a lot of intensity," Kings coach George Karl said.   Continued...
