SACRAMENTO, Calif. Daniel Murphy Mets Jersey . - The only thing Steve Kerr lost in his coaching debut was his voice.Stephen Curry had 24 points and 10 rebounds, Klay Thompson scored 19 points and the undermanned Golden State Warriors made Kerr a winner in his first game, shaking off a slow start to roll past the Sacramento Kings 95-77 on Wednesday night in the regular-season opener for both teams.I always laughed at Doc (Rivers) and (Tom) Thibodeau. Now it all makes sense, Kerr joked, his raspy voice struggling to piece together words. I got nothing left.The Warriors overcame the first hurdle of Kerrs tenure — besides his wavering voice, that is — with a patchwork lineup that did just enough against their rebuilding Northern California rivals.Golden State played without power forward David Lee (strained left hamstring) and reserve Brandon Rush (lower back spasms). Center Andrew Bogut also was limited to 18 minutes because of a migraine headache. He said he got on the floor with the help of undisclosed medicine and injections.The Warriors went to a smaller lineup late in the third quarter and pulled away with a 22-4 spurt.Those are the games you have to win, said forward Draymond Green, who finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds and played centre during the decisive run.DeMarcus Cousins had 20 points and 11 rebounds but was often stuck in foul trouble, and Rudy Gay scored 14 points for Sacramento in front of an announced sellout crowd of 17,317.The Kings had more turnovers (27) than made field goals (24).I think it was at 5:40 in the third quarter when we were up by one, and we turned into the Keystone Cops, said Kings coach Michael Malone.The Warriors, who fired Mark Jackson as coach after a 51-win season and back-to-back playoff appearances, began a season of high expectations with a sloppy but satisfying victory. Golden State outshot Sacramento 44 to 30.8 per cent, but had 22 turnovers and was outrebounded 50 to 44.Both teams started so poorly that fans even turned their attention elsewhere.Many crowded around luxury suites and press row to watch the ninth inning of the World Series on television late in the second quarter. Fans even erupted when the San Francisco Giants recorded the final out to beat Kansas City 3-2 in Game 7 for their third championship in five years.Players and coaches looked around wondering what happened until the public address announcer informed the arena of San Franciscos win. The Kings, who led 49-47 at the half, never got the home fans so enthused.With Cousins on the bench in foul trouble, the Warriors took over with Green at centre and Andre Iguodala at power forward. Marreese Speights also entered during the push and finished with 16 points.Give some credit to them, Cousins said, and some to us.RESUFFLED LINEUP: Harrison Barnes started at small forward for Iguodala, who came in as a reserve for the first time in his 10-year career. Iguodala had started all 807 previous games he played. Barnes started every game he played as a rookie but had a sophomore slump mostly coming off the bench behind Iguodala last season.COURTSIDE KINGS: Kings owner Vivek Ranadive sat in a courtside sat next to his daughter and Hall of Famers Chris Mullin and Mitch Richmond, who are both team advisers.LIVINGSTONS DEBUT: Warriors backup guard Shaun Livingston made a surprising debut after missing all of the preseason recovering from surgery on his right toe. He played 3:40 and said he felt fine.TIP-INSWarriors: The Warriors have won four of their last five season openers. ... Golden State went 4-0 against the Kings last season.Kings: Sacramento had won 15 of its last 16 home openers, including eight straight.UP NEXTThe Warriors host the Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday night.The Kings welcome Portland on Friday night. Yoenis Cespedes Jersey . -- Cleanthony Early scored 19 points and Tekele Cotton added 14 as No. Mark Buehrle Blue Jays Jersey . The testimony contrasted with several messages read out in court at the request of the prosecution a day earlier in which Pistorius and Reeva Steenkamp argued in the weeks before he fatally shot her. In those messages, Steenkamp told the double-amputee runner that she was sometimes scared by his behaviour, which included jealous outbursts in front of other people.Gilbert Melendez will not only continue fighting for the UFC, but he will do so for the lightweight title. The UFC confirmed reports Sunday that Melendez (22-3) was re-signed after the organization matched an offer sheet from Bellator. The UFC also confirmed that Melendez will now appear as a coach in the 20th season of “The Ultimate Fighter” opposite lightweight champion Anthony Pettis, with the two slated to fight for the title later this year. MMAFighting.com, who first reported the agreement, said the deal guarantees 75 per cent of Melendezs fights will be on pay-per-view. Furthermore, the agreement ensures the 31-year-old will earn income on pay-per-view points regardless of the success of the event, as well as his position in the main event, co-main event or main card. Such a contract will likely make “El Nino&rrdquo; one of the highest paid fighters in the organization. Roy Halladay Jersey. He already makes a reported $200,000 per fight, which combined with his upcoming pay-per-view earnings is sure to place him among the sports elite incomes. Melendez was the hottest free agent on the market, however, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney was not bitter about missing out on the prize. “We have a stacked lightweight roster and Gil would have made a great addition to it, yet Im glad he was able to go out, explore the free agent market and get paid what he deserves,” Rebney told MMAFighting.com. “Thats what the free market system is all about. Im happy for Gil, that through this process he was able to ensure long term financial security for himself and his family. Thats what the fighters that put it all on the line inside the cage deserve."
