Golden State V Sacramento Preview
I love a Northern California showdown especially after a bad loss from a dubs perspective. Tonight unlike the last meeting there is actually a bit of spice to this matchup. For the Warriors it's Chris Webber facing a team he spent a large chunk of his career with but to be honest I'd expect Webber to start his time here slowly. Apart from Thursday he hasn't played competively since game 6 of the 2007 ECF. It's likely going to take him more than a few games to get back his rhythm, timing, and whatever speed he has left in his tank.
The Kings tonight won't be anything but easy. Knowing the Warriors nothing is a guranteed win but don't let Sacramento's losing record say anything else Kevin Martin, Mike Bibby or Ron Artest are three immediate standoutish players and they are also coming in with xonfidence having won 5 of their past 6 games including a big win against our nemisis the Utah Jazz last night.
The Warriors on the other hand have come off a depressing national TV loss against the Bulls even without Heinrich, Deng and Gordon. If this team can actually start the game strong something that has been lacked this season then it should be a joy to watch at the Roaracle. Either way this should and hopefully will be a confidence booster to get back on track.
Webber gets 10 points 5 rebounds
Davis bounces back from a off shooting night with 20 points
Reggie Theus continues with his Hang Time coaching strategy (it's worked)
Warriors by 10
