The Golden State Warriors didn't look good at all in their season opener, mainly on the offensive side, and while it's just one game, it is something to keep an eye on moving forward. The Sacramento Kings look to have picked up where they left off, and we know they'll be up for this game as well at home. The Warriors sent the Kings home in the playoffs last season, so this is a revenge spot for the Kings. The Kings are a young team with a lot of momentum, and they're quickly making the case as the best team in California. We're not being asked to lay anything crazy. Give me the Kings and the small chalk.
