Home » Warriors win first game in series

After losing the first two games of the series against the Sacramento Kings, the Golden State Warriors managed to win their first game playing at home. And specifically in this matchup, it seems that the home factor will play a huge role. So far, the team playing before their own fans have won the game.

In yesterday’s game, the Sacramento Kings were not in their prime. The Warriors took advantage of it and beat the opponents with a 114-97 final score. The visitors didn’t win a single quarter in the game as their best performance was in the third period with a 31-31 tie.

Now both teams are resting for two days before coming back to Game 4 on Sunday. Sacramento leads the series 2-1 and is still trying to win their first playoff road game since 2004. Meanwhile, the Warriors want to take advantage again of the home factor to tie the series after starting it trailing by 2-0.

Since one of the Warriors’ defensive pillars, Draymond Green, was out of the game, we were expecting a great offensive performance from the Kings, which didn’t happen. Because of that, we missed some lines with the visitors. Check out what happened with all of our predictions.
