Sacramento has been playing out the string for a while now and you never know what the effort will be with that kind of club. Especially facing one of the best team in the league.
This team is very tough to handicap right now.
For the Warriors the effort is always there the question is who will be on the floor. Steph Curry won’t play but I can see how some of the others might have their minutes managed in what should be an easy game.
The Kings are not good. In a league that is becoming more and more about scoring they have a serious lack of offensive talent. That is not not something that is going to get fixed through scheme either.
What would that scheme be anyway. I know it is easy to pick on losing teams but I don’t get the composition of this club. They are an outlier 3rd in the league in 3PT% but don’t really use the shot the way a lot of other teams are right now.
I don’t know why the Kings didn’t buy out ZeBo like some other teams did with their vets. He could have been picked up and every possession he dominates is one less for the likes of Willie Cauley-Stein and Skal Labissiere.
Those guys need lots of reps if they are going to be functional NBA offensive players.
Those shots could also be going to developing guards Buddy Hield and De’Aaron Fox. Hield might be further in his development but both need to be able to make passes and get the ball back otherwise they force the issue and take bad shots.
As the Knicks progress the mandate needs to be centered on building an identity and figuring what system can net results with their current roster.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors might get healthy, rip through another championship and ride off into the sunset but right now they are not looking so dominant of late.
No reason to panic but back to back road losses may be giving the rest of the league some confidence. False confidence perhaps but at least it is something
Klay Thompson might miss this one so the Warriors could be down to just their frontcourt All-Stars. If that is the case you do see some guys you wouldn’t expect to see in an NBA game like Quinn Cook who has been starting at point guard.
Still more than enough firepower to take down the Kings.
It looks like Steve Kerr will be “stuck” with Kevin Durant and Draymond Green for this one. Those two should have a field day up front and create lots of opportunities for themselves and others.

Free Sacramento Kings vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
No matter who is on the floor Golden State will be heavy favourite, especially at Oracle.
Trying to figure out the true betting value of players is tough and the fact that the Warriors have been without Curry a little while only helps so much.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Warriors -12
The tendency is to fade the Warriors but remember that means you also have to back the Kings. I don’t want to.
