Betting on the Golden State Warriors (54-20)
The Warriors did not resemble the Warriors over their last few games. Instead of seeing Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, and Klay Thompson, Dubs fans had to content themselves watching Nick Young, Kevon Looney, and Quinn Cook on the floor. Curry and Thompson remained sidelined by injuries, but hey, at least they get Kevin Durant back. As of this writing, Durant is expected to play against Milwaukee after missing five games due to a rib injury. Durant is good enough to lead the Golden State to a win against a lousy team like Sacramento. Durant had a great night when Golden State thrashed the Kings, 119-104, on Feb. 2 at Golden 1 Center, as he scored 33 points on 12-for-17 shooting from the floor. He probably could get more that that this Saturday with the bulk of the offense expected to come from him. The Warriors own the highest-scoring offense in the league with 114.0 points per game and the most accurate one, as they are shooting 50.4 percent from the field.
Betting on the Sacramento Kings (24-51)
Apart from that February blowout loss to the Warriors, Sacramento has been competitive in the other two meetings this season with the defending champions. The Kings even beat Golden State the last time both teams shared a court. On Mar. 16, Sacramento took advantage of an undermanned Warriors team that was without Curry, Thompson, and Durant to eke out a 98-93 road win. Buddy Hield got hot in that game, scoring 22 points on the strength of five three-pointers, while Skal Labissiere contributed 15 points as also a part of the second unit. The Warriors are simply just not the same when they are without Curry and Thompson, and even though Sacramento has Durant to deal with, it’s a lot better scenario for the Kings than when all three Golden State gunners are available to play. Sacramento is only 29th in the league in scoring with just 99.4 points per game, but the offensive gap between the Kings and the Warriors is greatly reduced whenever Golden State does not have some of its All-Stars.
Golden State wins, 110-98.
