One common thing for both of those teams is that they would love to win their games scoring around 120 points and not caring about their defense until opponents score less.
The Kings have a record 6-7, which isn`t satisfying, but if you consider they were 1-4 after first 5 games, things aren`t so bad afterall. Sacramento has won 4 of their last 6 games, although yes they have had quite a friendly schedule here. What is notable here is that their scoring finally has picked up. After scoring only 92,7 points as an average over the first 7 games the Kings now have scored 106,5 points over their last 6 games. That is a good sign for the team especially if you consider that they have met the Jazz, Spurs and Nets - teams that don’t like to open up games very fast. Defensively the Kings have room to improve as they allow their opponents to score close to 100 points as an average.
Golden State can score, there is no doubt about that. Going with 89 points vs San Antonio, 94 points vs Utah and 99 vs New Orleans just shows their ability to score decent points even against defensive opponents. They don’t have that problem tonight though, cause the Kings hardly will care much about keeping the Warriors below 100 points. With “scoring machines” like Davis, Richardson and Fisher in their lineup expect the Warriors to punish often so absent-minded and careless defense of the Kings.
Both teams are glad to see an easier defense and both teams will rely on their offense tonight, so we see this game as an easy OVER ride. Expect both teams to go over 100 points and take OVER 199,5 points with high stakes 7/10.
