The Golden State Warriors are allowing 36.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43 rebounds per game.
The Sacramento Kings look for a win after winning four of their last five games. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 115 points on 48 percent shooting and allowing 120 points on 49.1 percent shooting. De'Aaron Fox is averaging 23.7 points and 3.4 rebounds while Harrison Barnes is averaging 16.6 points and 3.5 assists.

The Warriors are 8-28 ATS in their last 36 Thursday games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Kings are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games and 6-14 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The under is 5-0 in Warriors last 5 overall. The under is 6-1 in Kings last 7 overall. The Warriors are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Sacramento and 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Sacramento Kings are on the end of a back to back, but they're having a good week and just beat a red hot Hawks team last night, the type of confidence boosting win this young team needs. The Golden State Warriors are still without Curry and others, and they're shooting just 43 percent from the field in their last five games while losing by an average of 4.4 points. The Kings should win this game. I'll lay the bucket with the home team.
