Why the Warriors can cover

Guard Stephen Curry is a dominant presence on the court. Curry has limitless range and forces defenses to plan around him. The 10-time All-Star is able to thread the needle as a passer as well. Curry ranked ninth in the NBA in scoring (26.4) with 4.5 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game this season. In his last outing, he dropped 33 points and five assists.

Forward Jonathan Kuminga provides the Warriors with a downhill scoring threat. Kuminga can finish around the rim with ease and is an active force on the glass. The 21-year-old logs 16.1 points, 4.8 rebound  and 2.2 assists per contest. On April 11 against the Portland Trail Blazers, Kuminga totaled 19 points and six boards. See who to back at SportsLine.

Why the Kings can cover

Forward Keegan Murray is a good floor spacer who doesn’t need the ball in his hands to be effective. He fights on the glass and has a pure jumper on the perimeter. The Iowa product averages 15.2 points, 5.5 rebounds, and shoots 35% from downtown. He’s scored at least 19 points in three of his last five games, including on April 12 versus the Phoenix Suns when Murray had 23 points, seven rebounds, and made five 3-pointers.

Forward Harrison Barnes is another valuable player in the frontcourt. Barnes provides Sacramento with an active defender who has a fine offensive game. The UNC product is an efficient spot-up shooter, making 38% of his 3-point attempts. Barnes averages 12.2 points with three rebounds per game, and in his last contest against the Warriors, the 31-year-old had 39 points and went 7-of-12 from 3-point land. See who to back at SportsLine
