Bay Area Buzz 4/30: Big Victory for Sacramento, Warriors on Verge of Advancing

Sacramento Wins Big Victory in Fight for Kings

In a town normally obsessed with political power plays and legislative minutiae, the only thing people wanted to talk about Monday was the Kings.

Why the Golden State Warriors are on the Verge of Eliminating the Denver Nuggets

Jack and Green go vs. Andre Miller, Landry vs. Kenneth Faried, and Ezeli vs. JaVale McGee in a tag-team with Andrew Bogut … and Jackson’s secondary guys have had every edge from Game 2 on.

And what other coach would give Curry the freedom that Jackson has? Maybe Nelson, maybe Mike D’Antoni … but that’s it. Yeah, it’s working.

Basic summary: Jackson’s team looks fresh and confident, while Karl’s team looks befuddled and stale. That’s not all because of the coaches, but they are the ones who set the tone.

After examining the overall results, it’s a challenge to find any holes in their selections.
