Golden State looks for their first victory in . . . /checks notes . . . a long time.

If it feels like the Golden State Warriors haven’t won a game in a long time, it’s because they haven’t. A six-game losing streak, mixed with the extended break surrounding the All-Star Game, means that the Warriors haven’t emerged victorious in 22 days.

That’s a long time.

Since the Warriors last won a game, you’ve healed from your Super Bowl hurt, remembered that the 49ers lost and had your heartbroken again, and healed a second time. I’ve turned 30. The political landscape has gone in a wonky direction seven or eight times. It became spring, then reverted back to winter, then did that dance about ten more times. The Warriors got rid of half their roster.

A lot has happened since that February 3 victory over the Washington Wizards. And the Sacramento Kings want to keep this story going by handing the Dubs a seventh-straight loss, and earning a third-straight win of their own in the process.

It’ll be a fun battle to see established young prospect De’Aaron Fox go up against suddenly-surging rookie Jordan Poole, who has impressed since being moved to point guard. Trying to penetrate against Fox - and defend the ultra-speedy guard on the other end - will be a big task for Poole.

Those are the kinds of things that keep us watching in late February, when a 12-45 team takes on a 23-33 one.

As for available players, Marquese Chriss - who missed Sunday’s loss to the New Orleans Pelicans - has been upgraded from “questionable” to “probable.”

Draymond Green, however, remains sidelined.

You can catch the action at 7:30 p.m. PT on NBC Sports Bay Area.
