The Sacramento Kings are in town with Golden State’s 28-1 record on the line. Who’s stoked for another great time out at the Roaracle? Let's get it Dub Nation!
The Warriors. It's getting tricky writing up all these game previews. We just keep winning to a point where I want to write "Warriors fall behind and keep it close the first half... blow a 40 point lead in the 3rd and close it out in the 4th with a 12 point win." It doesn't work that way! I personally think the Warriors can close out the last 3 games of 2015 with back-to-back-to-back wins. It all depends how they do it.
The Kings will be playing with a healthy roster that's been making noise as of late. It'll be the first time the Warriors play DeMarcus Cousins, who they'll be keeping an eye on — he's a lot to handle when he's playing at full strength. He's averaging 24.5 PPG and 19.8 RPG. With Leandro Barbosa out (left shoulder sprain) and Harrison Barnes doubtful, the Dubs will need to get an extra push from their bench. The Kings are playing back-to-back games after last night's loss to the Portland Trailblazers.
- We've come to expect nothing but the best from Stephen Curry who's racking up stats and award recognitions at an alarming rate. The newly crowned "AP Male Athlete of Year" and his supporting cast of fun loving guys have been putting on a show night after night. Excited to see what the team and coaches have up their sleeves against this Sacramento squad that's at full strength.
- Draymond Green, who's doing just about everything on the court, is paying off tremendously and our 28-1 record is proof of that. Get ready for another great night for Mr. Green who's poised to mess around and possibly get a triple double (excited to his his match up vs Cousins).
- A strong defensive presence is going to help win this one tonight for the Dubs. They've made adjustments the last two games and can keep it going against the Kings. If Golden State can clog the lanes and force bad shots, Sacramento is going to have a long night.
- Steph vs Seth? We still want to see it!
Let's follow up our Christmas win with a win against the Kings, Dubs win a close one by 5!
