The Golden State Warriors are the consensus #1 team in the NBA for now and into Nate Silver's future, which means we should expect them to handle the Sacramento Kings with relative ease tonight - even Kings fans are hoping for an early Christmas miracle to pull this one off.
And with it being unlikely that we can really glean much about David Lee's integration into the rotation, it's likely that most people watching will be talking about the Kings more than the Warriors win or lose tonight: where do they stand in the surprising Josh Smith sweepstakes? Who will their next head coach be (and will it be someone with Warriors ties)? Is a run-and-gun style the best use of DeMarcus Cousins?
Lots of questions over there, while we continue this unfamiliar existence of expecting to steamroll another disoriented foe.
