Kings vs Warriors Prediction & Pick
After opening the series with a 2-0 lead, it's been all downhill for the Kings. They've been playing some slopping basketball during their three-game skid, allowing 121.0 PPG while only shooting 30.2% from three-point range and turning the ball over 14.7 times per contest. Underwhelming play like that makes it tough to keep pace with the talent-rich Warriors.
Speaking of which, the Warriors have an even bigger edge with Game 6 taking place at Chase Center. Steve Kerr's team is a whopping 35-8 straight up at home this season. Furthermore, the Warriors have won eight straight home games against the Kings by an average margin of 11 points.

As impressive as the Kings have been this year, it's time for their postseason run to end. The Warriors are near-impossible to stop when they get rolling, which is the case with a three-game winning streak on their side. Sacramento will push, but Golden State has the skill and experience to send the road team packing.
Final Score Prediction: Warriors: 121 | Kings: 115
Kings vs Warriors Best Bet
Klay Thompson has been money from three-point range over the last month or so. The veteran sharpshooter is averaging 4.8 threes on 43.2% shooting over his last 14 games and is already 22-of-54 (40.7%) from beyond the arc this series.
In other words, I don't see Thompson having issues surpassing a three-point total of 4.5 in Game 6. He's finished with five-plus threes in 11 of his previous 14 games — including thrice this series.
Having hit the over in five of his previous seven home games, expect another stellar shooting performance from the 33-year-old.
Bet: Klay Thompson — Threes Made: Over 4.5 (+104)
