James Anderson and Willie Cauley-Stein had big games as the Kings won their first game of the NBA summer league with a 90-71 rout of the Golden State Warriors at Thomas & Mack Center.

The Kings (1-2) led by as many as 30 points as Golden State (1-2) couldn’t match Sacramento’s balanced scoring.

The Kings had six players score in double figures.

Anderson scored a game-high 17 points. Cauley-Stein had his best all-around effort in summer league with 13 points, eight rebounds and five blocked shots.

The Kings practice Tuesday in preparation for the summer league championship tournament that begins Wednesday. The Kings won the championship last year.
