What to Know
After five games on the road, the Golden State Warriors are heading back home. Golden State and the Sacramento Kings will face off in a Pacific Division battle at 10 p.m. ET Monday at Chase Center. Sacramento should still be feeling good after a win, while the Dubs will be looking to get back in the win column.
The game between the Warriors and the Toronto Raptors this past Saturday was not particularly close, with Golden State falling 119-100. Golden State was down 96-69 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Power forward Jonathan Kuminga (26 points) was the top scorer for Golden State.
Meanwhile, the Kings were able to grind out a solid victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday, winning 121-114. Shooting guard Tyrese Haliburton and shooting guard Buddy Hield were among the main playmakers for Sacramento as the former dropped a double-double on 27 points and 11 dimes and the latter shot 7-for-9 from beyond the arc and finished with 29 points.
The Warriors are the favorite in this one, with an expected 13.5-point margin of victory. They have been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (16-8-2), so they might be worth a quick bet.
The Dubs are now 24-6 while Sacramento sits at 13-18. A pair of defensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Golden State have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 42.50%, which places them first in the league. Less enviably, Sacramento is stumbling into the matchup with the second most points allowed per game in the league, having given up 114.4 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked against the Kings.
