Sacramento Kings vs Golden State Warriors: Lineups, preview & prediction 11/27/17

Kings clamp down on defense late to stun Warriors missing Curry, Durant

Team Effort Drives Big Win Against Warriors

Curry is dealing with a right hand contusion while Durant is nursing a sprained left ankle.

"No one can make up for what those two do individually, so we have to do it with nine or 10 guys", fellow All-Star Klay Thompson said after Monday morning's shootaround.

Omri Casspi, a former King, has filled in admirably for Durant, contributing a total of 15 points, eight rebounds and six assists to the wins Friday and Saturday.

"We've got plenty of guys who can score if we play the right way".

Another theory that has been thrown around as to why Steph ignored the kid is because Curry knows why the kid wants his signature - the kid's parents are just trying to sell the jersey once they get it autographed.

Curry is averaging a team-leading 26 points, 6.3 assists and 5.2 rebounds and Durant, 24.7 points, 6.8 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2.06 blocked shots. According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Warriors are 13.5-point home favorites to beat the visiting Kings, who opened as 14.5-point road underdogs.

Fresh off an intense comeback win over DeMarcus Cousins and the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday, the reigning National Basketball Association champion Golden State Warriors will finish out their 3-game homestand with a contest against Boogie's former franchise, the Sacramento Kings.

The Warriors, with a deep rotation Kerr trusts, endured without Durant for 19 games late last season as he nursed a left knee injury.

"Honestly, I don't really change what I do", Thompson said of his approach without Curry and Durant. "The beauty of our team is everyone makes the most of it when their number is called".
