This one is a must win. If the team loses this one the Clips could regain the lead and then they'd have to rely on them losing again, if not twice more. Kings have nothing to play for so the team should come out hungry to beat them.

It's also a must win if the Ws have any hope of tying the Clips in their division record. Ws have to get this last win, and then hope that the Clips lose to LA, Phoenix, and Sac in their 3 remaining division games.

Of course, if the Ws win out, it's likely that they won't need the tiebreaker!

Interestingly, by the time the Ws play Friday, the Clips will have played 2 games (Hornets and Lakers), so the Ws COULD be well in the 8th spot by themselves by Friday! But the Ws need to keep their focus on winning their games and not get too caught up in what the Clips are doing.

Sacramento has gone 2-8 in their last 10, but they did beat Utah and Phoenix, and had several close losses, so they're not going to be easy.

The Warriors know how important this is. Losing this final division game means the Clips will most likely go to the playoffs unless they continue their recent slide. Like Bob and Jim said, the home court has been kind to the Kings in the past years. And what nothing more than a divisional rival to break the playoff dream from the Warriors.....


WELL NOT TODAY SON!!! Northern California has a new playoff bound team in the West. F*ck the purple and gray! Oakland's marching in Sacramento with a playoff dream, and they're marching out keeping that dream alive!!! GOooooo Warriors!... and go Hornets.

always tough in Sacto, a truly schizo team that has beaten Utah and Phoenix recently. However, the ws are clearly a better team this year, and understand full well it is a must win. Ws by 8.

I'm thinking about going to this game as well but I'm not familiar with Arco Arena. Where would you recommend to sit section and row wise if you have been there and are familiar with them. Thanks for the help in advance guys. Go Warriors!

Sac will put up a fight. Martin will get a bunch of BS foul calls and one of their big men (I'm guessing Thomas) will have a big night.

I'm just hoping nobody gets injured. This is the home stretch. [-o<

Warriors by 10. Or less.

You should be able to find tickets on the kings website, I just bought mine last night and I can't wait to go in there with my W's jersey....we need to turn the tables on the Sac fans and infiltrate that crackerjack box of a gym they call Arco like they try to do Oracle!!!

We already have to have the Clips lose twice more even if we win out. If we lose this one, then the Clips would have to lose 3 times.

As far as I am concerned, we can not afford to lose ANY more games.

The Kings beat Memphis tonight 112-100. Notably, Kevin Martin (virus) and Corliss Williamson (heel) did not play. Williamson played the other night for 20 minutes against Utah, but that was his only action in the last 5 games. Martin should be healthy by Friday, but you never know how much stamina he'll have after being sick.
