OAKLAND, Calif. Fake Vapormax 3 . -- Nobody will argue the Golden State Warriors have a lineup of reliable, superstar scorers. They nearly had a trio of 30-point performers.Defenders, thats still to be determined.Were trying to win a championship, you dont do that simply by outscoring people, coach Steve Kerr said.Klay Thompson hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 4:31 left and another with 3:13 remaining to score a season-high 30 points, Stephen Curry also had 30 points with five 3s, and the balanced Warriors held off the Phoenix Suns 133-120 on Sunday night.Kevin Durant added 29 points, nine rebounds and five assists as he Warriors avoided a second home loss at this early stage that would have matched their total of two defeats at Oracle Arena in each of the past two regular seasons.Thompson shot 11 for 18 also with five 3s and scored 14 of his points in the fourth, while Draymond Green finished with 14 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds as Golden State overcame 16 turnovers for 18 Suns points.Eric Bledsoe and T.J. Warren scored 20 points apiece to lead six players in double figures for the Suns, who hardly looked sluggish in the second night of a back-to-back.You cant let them shoot 50 percent from the field, Thompson said. If we want to get where we want to go, we have to pick it up on that side of the ball.Thompsons 3-pointer with 6:58 to go tied the score at 106 but Leandro Barbosa answered with a 3 against his former team and Brandon Knights free throws with 6:15 remaining made it 111-96 Suns.Devin Booker added 19 points for Phoenix, while P.J. Tucker kept the Suns in it. His putback with 9:53 left tied it at 101, he made a pair of free throws at 9:18 and a reverse layin with 8:40 to play to make it 104-103. Tucker had eight points and eight rebounds.The Warriors own their longest winning streak against the Suns at nine games, including 10 in a row at Oracle Arena.Still, Green insists Golden State must do more on both ends.Fans arent going to bring energy to a game like this because theyre expecting us to come in and beat them by 30, he said.Warren had four steals for Phoenix, and the Suns took 90 shots a day after putting up an NBA-high 107 in a home loss to Brooklyn.BARBOSA IS BACKBarbosa returned to Oracle for the first time since joining the Suns following two seasons with Golden State, but blamed himself afterward for several mistakes down the stretch.I gave the spark for them, the crowd got into the game and it was tough to shut it down, he said.Golden State showed Barbosa highlights on the big screen during a first-quarter timeout and he watched intently with his hands on his hips near one baseline. He smiled and waved in all directions as fans jumped to their feet for a standing ovation.We built up something really special with this team, Barbosa said. Good memories. We built something unique. You can never forget that.Steve Nash also attended the game with his family -- a reunion of sorts for the guard with his old Suns team as he now works as a player development consultant for Golden State.DISHING AND DASHINGThe Warriors shot 50 percent or better from the field with at least 30 assists in a fourth straight game, the first time they have done so since 1994.TIP-INSSuns: C Tyson Chandler rejoined the team but missed his fourth straight game following the death of his mother Tuesday from cancer. ... The Suns played their third back-to-back already.Warriors: Currys fifth basket of the game gave him 4,000 career field goals, the ninth player in franchise history to reach the mark. He made 7 of 7 free throws and the Warriors went 27 for 31 from the line. ... Durant has at least one block in a career-best 11 straight games.UP NEXTSuns: At Denver on Wednesday for the second contest of six straight road games -- the Suns longest road trip of the season along with another six-gamer from March 19-28.Warriors: Begin a four-game road trip Wednesday at Toronto.

LAS VEGAS -- Nevada lawmakers are going out of their way this week to give a casino owner worth $32 billion a stadium funded on the back of taxpayers.Soon we will find out if longstanding hypocrisy of the NFL has a price tag, too.The guess here is that it does, because theres nothing like a $750 million gift to pry NFL owners off their moral high ground. Sure, some may still view Las Vegas as a decadent place teeming with undesirables, but the idea of the city being the new home of the Raiders isnt nearly as far-fetched as it may have been just a year or so ago.Give Sheldon Adelson credit for that. The casino moguls scheme to fleece the public for a new stadium has so far worked to perfection. Nevada lawmakers have been falling all over themselves in a special session to pass a new tax for the project, even while schools are overcrowded and the state is facing a $400 million budget shortfall.With that piece of business all but wrapped up -- a vote by the Nevada Assembly is expected by the end of the week -- the biggest remaining hurdle is for NFL owners to approve the move of the team from Oakland. Such a vote would have seemed laughable just a few years ago because of the leagues longstanding opposition to sports betting, but the times are changing.Commissioner Roger Goodells protestations aside, NFL owners are realizing they have little to fear from sports betting. Many already are invested in some form of gambling and dont see it as a threat or even a moral roadblock.Plus, theres nothing like a glittering new stadium to make NFL owners a little giddy.Thats exactly what Adelson wants to build near his casinos just off the Las Vegas Strip. Its his legacy project, a gift to the community, his envoys claim, even if others will be picking up a good piece of the tab and he will reap the profits.Just how much that piece is isnt exactly clear. Neither are many of the details of the stadium plan, carved out with the approval of Raiders owner Mark Davis.What is clear is that Adelson and his minions demanded $750 million from new tourism taxes to pay for part of a stadium -- that could cost $1.3 billion, $1.4 billion or $1.9 billion, depending on what figure is thrown out -- or they would walk. Davis and the Raiders will put in $500 million -- mostly through seat licenses and an NFL loan -- and Adelson will cover the rest.What is also clear is that the Raiders moving to Las Vegas would be a game changer in many ways. Not only would it give Sin City the prestige of ann NFL team, but it would further soften attitudes toward sports betting that were once absolute. Cheap Vapormax Womens. This is a league, after all, that for years refused to allow Las Vegas to air commercials during the Super Bowl lest the thought there are casinos somewhere might somehow contaminate the sport.There are some issues with an NFL team in Las Vegas, mostly because it is a small television market and a city that already has NFL teams on both sides in Los Angeles and Phoenix. The city has never shown it can support a professional sports team, though it will get an NHL team next year.But while the stadium will increase hotel room taxes for 30 years, the expansion NHL team and arena were both privately funded. Billionaire owner Bill Foley is also putting up the money to build a practice facility for the team, while the Raiders will get $100 million in the stadium deal to build one of their own.Count Foley among those who know a bad deal when they see one.Im not going to be politically correct here, Foley said at a fan fest a few days ago. But I believe if youre going to spend $750 million of the publics money, it should be on policemen, firefighters and teachers.None of that made much of a difference to members of the state Senate who on Tuesday rubber-stamped Adelsons tax plan. They figured out quickly which way the wind blows and it blows in favor of Adelson, a big political contributor who also owns the newspaper in Las Vegas.So now the focus turns to the NFL, and securing 24 votes among 32 owners for the move. Though Goodell is opposed to the Raiders leaving Oakland, two owners believe it would be good for the league -- and the Dallas Cowboys and New England Patriots carry some weight.Jerry Jones and Robert Kraft have told me the NFL is ready to do it, casino owner Steve Wynn told legislators.What Adelson ends up with other than a stadium for his legacy hasnt been fully explained. Dont be surprised, though, if he gets a piece of the Raiders, or eventually ends up owning the team.Hes a casino operator who became incredibly rich by being incredibly good at finding ways to separate people from their money.And hes found a perfect companion in a league that operates on the same basic principle.---Tim Dahlberg is a national sports columnist for The Associated Press.
