Golden State Warriors vs Sacramento Kings

Golden State Warriors's Latest Performance :
The Warriors will look to bounce back after taking a beating against the Raptors at home in their last game. The Warriors were simply not themselves missing shots left and right it was just a bad shooting night. It was the Warriors first home loss to Toronto since 2004. It was just the fifth time this season they have been held under 100 points – they have lost all five of those contests. The team’s 23.1 percent from beyond the arc (6-for-26) was the second-worst they’ve shot all season long. Stephen Curry was held to season-low 10 points. He and Klay combined 2-for-13 from long range. Thompson finished the game with 14 points. The only bright spot for the Dubs was Kevin Durant he finished with a game-high 30 points and grabbed 7 boards. He continues to do his thing no matter who he has on him he is a pure scorer but Kevin Durant can’t do it all alone as he will need his teammates to pick up their shooting touch against the Kings in the next game. He will be going up against rookie Bagley.
Sacramento Kings's Latest Performance :
The Kings look like a completely different team this season they are 15-12 on the year and currently the eighth seed. The Kings were on fire from behind the arc as they hit 18 threes. Sacramento shot 58.1 percent (50-for-86) from the field in its fifth win in six games. Buddy Hield and Bogdan Bogdanovic each scored 20 points, and rookie Marvin Bagley III had 17 points and 10 rebounds. The focal point of this game was on Bjelica as he was going up against his former team and didn’t disappoint as he scored 25 points including four threes in the night. The Kings will look to replicate this type of shooting performance when they welcome the Warriors into town. It goes to show that the Kings can do it all this season shoot threes score down the block with Willie and Bagley. Fox will look forward to the matchup of going up against Curry as he is the frontrunner of most improved this season. They have one of the youngest and talented roster this season.

Against The Spread Selection: Sacramento Kings
My reason for the pick :
I have a sense that the Kings are going to upset the Warriors at home. Fox has improved his game drastically as he should be a problem for Curry on the defensive end. The Kings can beat the Warriors in two ways either dump it down to their bigs on the block or get hot from distance again as they showed in their last game they have shooters who can really shoot the rock. This game will be won by defense as the Warriors will continue to struggle to shoot the ball as they drop two games in a row.
