The Golden State Warriors will play in their fourth preseason game on Wednesday night as they take on the Sacramento Kings. The game will be played at 7:00 PM PT in San Francisco and can be watched on NBA TV and NBC Sports Bay Area.
What To Watch For:
Golden State plays Sacramento in a rematch of last Sunday’s preseason game where the Warriors took home the 121-115 overtime victory. While they were able to win without the services of point guards Steph Curry and Chris Paul – both of whom were declared inactive prior to the matchup — expect them to be available in this one as head coach Steve Kerr says he will be using this week as a dress rehearsal for the regular season.

While Paul’s integration into the offense remains the biggest storyline heading into the regular season, the progress of Jonathan Kuminga may be the most important. Kuminga has been fantastic in the first three preseason games averaging 26 points and five rebounds in 26 minutes per game.
Perhaps the biggest revelation for the Warriors, however, is how often Kuminga is getting to the free-throw line. On Sunday, he attempted a game-high 17 free-throws and made 13 of them during his 28-point performance. Considering the Warriors’ struggles scoring in the paint last postseason, they will gladly welcome Kuminga’s aggressiveness at the rim as he takes advantage of the space generated by the team’s potent perimeter scoring threats.
