The Golden State Warriors vs. Sacramento Kings series will go back to Sacramento for one last matchup. Playing away from home, the Kings put up a tough fight and forced Game 7. Malik Monk was the top scorer for the visitors coming off the bench with 28 points. De’Aaron Fox went on with his business as usual with 26 points. For the defending champions, Stephen Curry was yet again the leader from the front with 29 points. Against all odds, Sacramento beat the Warriors in their home fortress and will head back home with a chance to close the series out. The final score was 118-99.

Although the Warriors have been an impressive team under pressure, their record on the road isn’t the best. Ahead of their Game 5 victory, Golden State had an 11-30 record away from home this season. However, with their chances for the Conference Semi-Finals on the line, they will look to remind everyone why they’re a force to reckon with.

As the Warriors head to Game 7, here’s a look at how they do in the penultimate series decider game. The Warriors as a franchise have played 10 Game 7s in their entire NBA history. They have a 50% win percentage as a franchise, with five wins and five losses. Their first Game 7 win was way back in 1948 against the St. Louis Bombers. However, in recent times, with the current trio of Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green, they have a 2-2 record in four Game 7s. The first Game 7 played by this trio was back during their younger days in 2014. The Warriors faced off against the Los Angeles Clippers as their hopes for a title run were squashed.

However, in 2016, Golden State Warriors played two Game 7s as the defending champions. The first was against the Oklahoma City Thunder, in which they made a phenomenal comeback after being down 3-1. In the finals, they played the Cleveland Cavaliers and were on the receiving end of a 3-1 comeback as they lost Game 7, resulting in an NBA finals loss. Their most recent Game 7 was a victory against the Houston Rockets in 2018 when they went ahead to win the championship for the third time.

Heading into the Warriors-Kings series, all eyes were set on two particular players. While one of them was the former MVP: Stephen Curry, the other was the young talent; De’Aaron Fox. Fox has shone this season as he is the NBA clutch player of the season. Curry, on the other hand, has now become an NBA veteran with a truckload of experience. Needless to say, his skills with and without the ball makes a huge impact on the game. So how do both of them look in comparison to each other this postseason?

Both Curry and Fox stand at three wins each after Game 6. The 2022 Finals MVP has been leading the Warriors from the front. He currently averages 31 points per game with 4.7 assists and 4.3 rebounds in six games. On the flip side, Fox is averaging 29.3 points per game with 8.0 assists and 5.8 rebounds. The two-time MVP has scored a total of 186 points in the series, whereas the clutch player of the year has scored 176.

There is no doubt that these two players will be of key importance to their teams in Game 7. Fox has been the pillar of the Kings’ impressive offensive force this season. However, Curry has a history of putting up the most impressive performances under pressure. Certainly, he will look to come to the party and make some noise in Sacramento. As the entire NBA fraternity fastens their seat belts for an exciting Game 7, both the guards look promising to have a revolutionary Game 7.
