Monday, April 17th, the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings continue their first-round playoff series. Sacramento held on to win 126-123 in the opening game of the series.
The initial match lived up to expectations with both teams showcasing their offensive prowess and while the Warriors flirted with stealing Game 1, Sacramento prevailed to ‘light the beam’.
At this time, the Warriors are 39-43-1 overall against the spread this season. Also, they are 12-30 ATS as the away team. Additionally, the Kings are 46-37 against the spread this season. Also, they are 19-23 ATS as the home team
Golden State won the season series 3-1 with victories on October 23rd (130-125), November 7th (116-113), and April 7th (119-97) while the Kings won on November 13th (122-115).
Last season the teams played four times with the Warriors sweeping the season series. The Warriors have won 215 of the 408 matches played versus the Kings all-time.
Golden State Warriors
In his first game since February 13th, Andrew Wiggins subbed in off the bench and it was evident just how much the Warriors missed his presence. Wiggins offered 17 points, 3 rebounds, an assist, and four blocks while defending De’Aaron Fox.
Fox did break out in the second half, but the Canadian looked like he never missed a day. Steve Kerr will likely ramp up his minutes and eventually return him to the starting rotation.
On one hand, this loss can be looked at as a missed opportunity, on the other hand given how great the Warriors are at adapting throughout a series we should expect Kerr to make adjustments prior to Game 2.
Comparatively, Golden State averages 118.9 points per game ranking second overall while shooting 47.9% from the field and 38.5% from deep ranking 12th and second respectively.
Warriors opponents score 117.6 points ranking 21st with them shooting 47.1% from the field and 36.6% from deep ranking ninth and 18th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Ty Jerome, SG (questionable —illness)
- Andre Iguodala, SF (OUT til late April —wrist)
- Ryan Rollins, SG (OUT indefinitely—foot)
Inexperience was cited as the main reason why most opponents were hoping to draw the Kings and those nerves were definitely on display early as they shot under 40 percent and couldn’t hit from deep.
Domantas Sabonis was held to 12 points on 5 of 17 shooting but the Warriors couldn’t keep him off the board (16). Fox was limited to nine first half points but delivered his customary strong fourth quarter finishing with 38 points (13 of 27) while Malik Monk scored 32 with 14 trips to the line.
The other x-factor wasTrey Lyles who offered 16 points and six rebounds all at pivotal moments in the match.
Presently, offensively, the Kings are among the very best in the association with the highest scoring output averaging 121.3 points per game. Similarly, they perform well in the proficiency areas registering 49.6% from the field and 37.1% from deep ranking second and ninth overall.
On the negative side, Sacramento ranks 26th in opponent scoring allowing 118.2 points per game while foes shoot 49.2% from the field and 37.3% from the perimeter ranking 29th and 26th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Matthew Dellavedova PG (OUT —finger)

Free Golden State Warriors vs. Sacramento Kings NBA Prediction:
As expected this series is likely to be the highest scoring of the opening round and Game 1 confirmed that fact. Sacramento showed the nerves early but put up 71 points in the second half.
Size was an issue highlighted by the Kings 17 offensive rebounds (to nine) and 6o (to 44) points scored in the paint. Still, the match was one missed Curry 3-pointer from extending into overtime.
For Game 2, the Kings will have shaken off the nerves but the Warriors will likely have a much better game plan to deal with Monk specifically who can’t be getting to the line 14 times let alone scoring over 30 points.
Golden State hasn’t gone down 2-0 in a series since 2007 in the semi-finals versus the Jazz and despite their road struggles I’d lean into them evening up the series.
