The Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings meet Friday in NBA action at the Golden 1 Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Golden State Warriors are averaging 118.5 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 117.6 points on 47.1 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 29.6 points and 6.3 assists, while Klay Thompson is averaging 21.8 points and 2.4 assists. Jordan Poole is the third double-digit scorer and Andrew Wiggins is dishing 2.3 assists. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 38.2 percent from beyond the arc and 79.2 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 36.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.4 rebounds per game.

The Sacramento Kings are averaging 121.3 points on 49.6 percent shooting and allowing 118.2 points on 49.2 percent shooting. De’Aaron Fox is averaging 25.2 points and 4.2 rebounds, while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 19.2 points and 12.4 rebounds. Kevin Huerter is the third double-digit scorer and Harrison Barnes is grabbing 4.5 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 37.1 percent from beyond the arc and 79.3 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 37.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.6 rebounds per game.

The Warriors are 16-38-1 ATS in their last 55 road games and 36-16-1 ATS in their last 53 Friday games. The Kings are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 34-15-2 in Warriors last 51 road games. The under is 5-2 in Kings last 7 overall. The Warriors are 2-5 ATS in the last 7 meetings in Sacramento and 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Sacramento Kings are likely going to sit guys with them locked into the third seed, which is why this line has jumped. The Golden State Warriors can't win on the road, but they're still fighting to stay out of the play-in tournament and if their starters can't beat potentially the Kings backups, something is wrong. Assuming the Kings sit guys, I'm going to lay the chalk with the Warriors.

Randy’s Pick Golden State Warriors -5.5
