The Dubs could use a feel good win over the Kings to get back on track.

The Golden State Warriors have lost seven games out of their first ten, including five in a row. They’ve also lost all six of the games they’ve played on the road, a funny stat for a team that has dominated on away from home under coach Steve Kerr.

But Dub Nation can be optimistic about their next game because it will come at home where the team is 3-1, and they’ll be facing an opponent they’ve already beaten before: their Pacific division rival Sacramento Kings.

Last time these two teams battled, the Dubs put up some crazy offensive numbers. Per ESPN:

Stephen Curry, who recorded his third straight 30-point performance to start the season, scored 21 points in the second quarter with five 3-pointers and shot 11 for 22 overall, including 7 of 12 on 3s. The reigning NBA Finals MVP helped Golden State to its third-most points in any half in franchise history and second-most in a first half. The Warriors’ 50 points in the second quarter were a franchise record and matched the third-most points in any period.

Interestingly, with all those scoring pyrotechnics, the final score was pretty close at 130-125. Golden State’s defense (or lack thereof) has been the story of their season.

The Kings have a 3-5 record for the season, with former Warriors assistant coach Mike Brown trying to turn a Sacramento franchise around that hasn’t made the playoffs since 2006. The Kings won their most recent contest on a Curryesque buzzer-beater from guard De’Aaron Fox.

Who will prevail Monday night in Chase Center?
