Keys to W's Getting the W
1) No More Turnovers
I am still haunted by those 3 Blake Griffin breakaway dunks IN A ROW off turnovers. Please. Stop.
2) Clean the Glass
With the front court players the Warriors have they should never get dominated on the boards like they did against the Clippers. That needs to change tonight.
3) Attack the Kings Backcourt
On paper this is one of the weaker backcourts in the association. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson should be able to dominate.
4) Big Bench Minutes from Barnes
Nearly 34 minutes combined playing time for Draymond Green and Marreese Speights doesn't seem like a good recipe for success. Hopefully Harrison Barnes can step up and give the Warriors a lift off the bench. Barnes playing the 4 for spot minutes off the bench with Jermaine O'Neal manning the middle could be an interesting look.

Warriors vs Kings Picks
I haven't played fantasy basketball in about a decade and it shows. Let's see if this does the trick...
- Andrew Bogut: Hoping for a big rebounding night.
- John Salmons: Potential Warrior Killer.
- Andre Iguodala: Digging the 11 dimes on Thursday night.
- Jermaine O'Neal: His D down low will be critical and hopefully there's some good minutes off the bench.
Also if you can't make GSOM Night 13 for whatever reason, make sure to check out Beyond the Box on your 3rd screen while you're watching the game. Please send me your requests through the Feedback form in the iPad app.
