Sacramento, California:

Nate Robinson, David Lee and Brandon Rush all scored 17 points, and the Golden State Warriors shook off the trade of leading scorer Monta Ellis to beat the Sacramento Kings 115-89 on Tuesday.

The Warriors agreed to send Ellis, forward Ekpe Udoh and center Kwame Brown to Milwaukee for Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson, a person with direct knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.

The stunned Warriors then got 15 points from Charles Jenkins, 14 points and 10 rebounds from Dorell Wright, and 14 points from Klay Thompson.

DeMarcus Cousins had 19 points and 12 rebounds for the Kings, who lost their second straight home game.
