Warriors vs Kings prediction

The Kings have a great home crowd, and we know they're going to be out in full force in hopes of getting their team over the top. The Kings have won the last two games against the Warriors, in games that were decided by a combined two points. With that said, the Kings have been on the struggle bus since the injuries to Monk and Huerter, and that includes losses in 6 of their last 10 games. The Kings are down two of their best rotation scorers, and the production has dropped since. The Warriors are a roster full of multiple time champions who don't blink in must win games, and they'll always be a tough out. Curry and Draymond are questionable at the time of this writing, but I'm assuming they'll suit up with the Warriors season on the line. I'll lay the bucket with the Warriors.
