The Golden State Warriors are set to welcome their NorCal rival Sacramento Kings inside the glitzy splendor that is Chase Center in San Francisco.
The Kangz are currently a low playoff seed in the West with an 11-14 record. Although that record is sub-mediocre, I did have them penciled in as a 7/8 seed in my preseason rankings.
Speaking of sub-mediocre, the Warriors have a record of 5-22, which is sub-sub-mediocre when I really think about it. The Dubs are clearly taking the “I Got 5 On It” track to heart, and for them to get their sixth win of the season they’ll need to keep from getting steamrolled by Willie Cauley-Stein’s former team.
WCS has been hit-or-miss with the Dubs this season (a lotta misses), but you’d have to expect he’d be motivated to ball out against the team that drafted him and then tossed him? Right?
Also, here’s some cool Bay Area trivia:
Per @EliasSports, today marks just the third time that all three of the Warriors, 49ers and Raiders have played home games in the Bay Area on the same day. The last such occurrence came on October 29, 1967.— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) December 15, 2019
