Golden State just keeps chugging along and winning games. Most recently, they scored 128 points en route to another dominating win over the Portland Trail Blazers. Klay Thompson and Steph Curry combined for 62 points while Draymond Green recorded yet another triple-double. That’s been the recipe all season and it’s nearly impossible to beat this team at full force. What’s scary about this particular matchup is the Kings defense against the Warriors offense. Not only does Sacramento play some of the worst defense in the NBA, they also play at an incredibly high pace. That opens the door for a huge game from the Warriors and it would be no surprise to see them drop 120-plus points once again.
Things are finally looking up for Sacramento right now and they find themselves in the playoff run out of nowhere. They only sit half a game out of the eight-seed in the west and much of that can be attributed to their home court success. The Kings are 10-9 at Sleep Train Arena, opposed to a 5-16 record on the road. Sacramento also comes into this game winning three of their last four, with the one loss coming in heartbreaking fashion. They held a seven-point lead with under two minutes left in that loss to the Dallas Mavericks and ended up losing in double-overtime. The reason for the recenr success has been DeMarcus Cousins. Boogie Cousins is currently averaging 30 points, 13.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.2 blocks per game over his last five games. Those are MVP type numbers and fans have to be encouraged that the team is finally winning with Cousins playing at an elite level. Look for this game to be more competitive than the average fan would anticipate, as the Warriors come in as just six-point favorites.
