How Warriors can jump kings for No. 8 play-in seed in West

How Warriors Kings can vault for No. 8 play-in seed in West originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area

The Warriors are locked into the NBA Play-In Tournament, but their bid to climb the Western Conference standings continues with just two regular season games remaining.

Since the All-Star break, the Warriors have been No. 10 most of the time. But as they’ve managed to go from a stagnant start to the season to playing their best balls at just the right time, number 8 isn’t far out of reach.

The Sacramento Kings currently own the No. 8 seed, but Golden State has a chance to surpass its Northern California neighbors and claim it.

All the Warriors have to do is win and take another loss from the Kings. The Warriors host the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday evening at Chase Center, who dominated the Kings for the fifth time this season on Thursday evening. It will be the second half of a back-to-back for both teams.

Golden State then welcomes the Utah Jazz to Chase Center for Sunday’s regular-season finale.

Sacramento, which has lost four of its last five games, will also close the 2023-24 regular season at home. The Kings face the Phoenix Suns on Friday night and the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday.

The difference between the No. 9 or No. 10 seed versus the No. 8 seed is, of course, quite drastic. The No. 9 and No. 10 seeds will face off in a do-or-die game, while the winner of the No. 7 and No. 8 seed matchup will automatically advance to the playoffs and the loser will get one more has. chance to make it.

So it’s going to be a busy weekend around the Western Conference, and the stakes couldn’t be higher.
