OAKLAND — Monta Ellis scored a career-high 42 points for the Warriors to overcome Kevin Martin's career-best 50 for the Kings, and Golden State snapped a five-game losing streak with a 143-141 overtime victory over Sacramento on Wednesday night in another wild game befitting the NBA's two worst defensive teams.

Ronny Turiaf made the go-ahead free throw with 12.2 seconds left for the Warriors, who blew a 4-point lead late in regulation.
