Kings vs. Warriors: A rematch against Golden State

New, comments

Sacramento takes on the Warriors again, this time in Sacramento with Sign Lady at center court.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The penultimate preseason game for the Kings (7 p.m. Pacific, Comcast Sports Bay Area) is important for a lot of reasons, but especially as it's an opportunity to raise some dough for breast cancer awareness and in particular one local charity helping victims of the disease, Albie Aware. Our favorite fan, Barbara Rust (aka Sign Lady), will be recognized as well.

There's also a game, one of only two left before tipoff of the regular season. The Kings faced the Warriors to open preseason two weeks ago, and while Michael Malone's new defensive bent was on display, DeMarcus Cousins struggled on offense in that one. He's since turned it around. If Andrew Bogut plays, it'll be a good test for the Kings' big man.

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute is also back, albeit perhaps not in excellent shape. We'll see. The point guard battle is also worth watching. Greivis Vasquez is, yes, recovering from offseason surgery. But he really hasn't been too impressive at all so far. Isaiah Thomas has been, including in terms of setting up teammates. I'm also looking forward to more Ben McLemore and more Jimmer Fredette.

PREDICTION

Kings 110-Warriors 102.

PREGAME HAIKU

Don't leave us behind,
Golden State. It's so lonely
down here with Lakers.
