The Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings meet Sunday in Game 7 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 115.2 points on 45.8 percent shooting and allowing 116 points on 43.8 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 31 points and 4.7 assists, while Klay Thompson is averaging 21.3 points and 2.3 assists. Andrew Wiggins is the third double-digit scorer and Jordan Poole is dishing 3.2 assists. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 32.8 percent from beyond the arc and 77.4 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 31.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45 rebounds per game.

The Sacramento Kings are averaging 116 points on 43.8 percent shooting and allowing 115.2 points on 45.8 percent shooting. De’Aaron Fox is averaging 29.3 points and 8 assists, while Malik Monk is averaging 19.8 points and 4.8 rebounds. Domantas Sabonis is the third double-digit scorer and Harrison Barnes is grabbing 4 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 31.6 percent from beyond the arc and 79.1 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 32.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.5 rebounds per game.

The Warriors are 16-36-1 ATS in their last 53 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games. The Kings are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. The over is 37-16-2 in Warriors last 55 road games. The under is 7-3 in Kings last 10 overall. The Warriors are 7-17 ATS in the last 24 meetings.

I'm about as shocked the Golden State Warriors lost game 6 on their home court as they are. The Sacramento Kings may be young, but they have confidence and aren't intimated by these Warriors, and Fox looks OK despite a messed up finger. At this point a Kings victory wouldn't surprise me as they're at home with a nasty home crowd that's thirsty for success. Still, I'm going to lean on the experience of the Warriors in a game 7. They've been here, done that and have won in hostile buildings over the last several years. That's where I lean, but game 6 does have me a bit spooked if we're being honest.
