The Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings meet Wednesday in Game 5 of the NBA West First Round Playoffs at the Golden 1 Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
The Golden State Warriors are averaging 117.3 points on 46.1 percent shooting and allowing 115.5 points on 44 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 31.5 points and 3.8 assists, while Klay Thompson is averaging 20.3 points and 3.3 assists. Andrew Wiggins is the third double-digit scorer and Jordan Poole is dishing 3 assists. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 33.9 percent from beyond the arc and 82.6 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 30.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.3 rebounds per game.
The Sacramento Kings are averaging 115.5 points on 44 percent shooting and allowing 117.3 points on 46.1 percent shooting. De’Aaron Fox is averaging 31.5 points and 7 assists, while Malik Monk is averaging 17.5 points and 4.3 rebounds. Domantas Sabonis is the third double-digit scorer and Harrison Barnes is grabbing 4.3 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 30.3 percent from beyond the arc and 76.5 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 33.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47 rebounds per game.
The Warriors are 15-36-1 ATS in their last 52 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Conference Quarterfinals games. The Kings are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games and 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games following a straight up loss. The over is 36-16-2 in Warriors last 54 road games. The under is 6-2 in Kings last 8 overall. The Warriors are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Sacramento and 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The Sacramento Kings are still an athletic, explosive team and the Warriors have their issues on the road that are well documented. However, it's hard to think the Kings can compete without their star point guard in De’Aaron Fox, who is doubtful with a broken finger on his shooting hand. It's a massive blow to the Kings and puts blood in the water for a championship roster in the Warriors. This is a golden opportunity for the Warriors to take control of this series for the first time, and I just don't think they blow it. I'll lay the chalk with the Warriors on the road.
