  • LAST TIME OUT
    Playing in their second matchup of a two-game, two-night road trip, the Warriors fell behind early and never recovered in a 109-83 loss in Houston on Thursday. Richard Jefferson poured in 14 off the bench, but it wasnt enough as the Rockets controlled the glass 48-31 and outscored the Warriors 58-38 in the paint. David Lee chipped in 12 points and five rebounds and Klay Thompson added in 10 for his 11th-straight double-digit contribution. FULL GAME RECAP


  • WARRIORS VS. KINGS
    The final chapter of this seasons Northern California rivalry will be written on Saturday as the Golden State takes on Sacramento for the fourth and final time in the 2011-12 campaign. The Warriors have won two of the first three matchups, the most recent being a 115-89 triumph last Tuesday in the state capital. That marked this seasons largest margin of victory for the Warriors, who have not lost a season series to the Kings since the 2002-03 campaign.


  • KEEP AN EYE ON ...
    Brandon Rush. The first-year Warrior has played two of his finest games of the season against the Kings. He had a season-high 20 points at home on January 31 against the Northern California rival and he knocked down a season-high five 3-pointers in Sacramento last week. Rush has gone 10-for-16 from long distance in the three meetings with the Kings this season, and his 14.0 scoring average is the highest against any opponent that the team has played more than once this season.


  • INTRIGUING MATCHUP
    Neither Nate Robinson nor Isaiah Thomas entered the season as their teams starting point guards, but both players have certainly been productive since taking over starting roles. Robinson has assumed point guard duties in the wake of Stephen Currys ankle injury and posted an unheard-of 5.4:1 assist to turnover ratio over the last seven games, and Thomas is the reigning Western Conference Rookie of the Month. Both guards are fiery competitors who are diminutive in stature. In addition, they are both natives of the Seattle area who attended the University of Washington. Needless to say, their matchup is one to look out for.
