Neither the Sacramento Kings nor the Golden State Warriors have had a stellar start to their 2012 campaign. Both currently sit at the bottom of the Pacific Conference, with a set of road games for each on the upcoming schedule.
The Kings (4-9) lost their last two in the Lone Star state against the Houston Rockets and Dallas Mavericks, then head to Minnesota to take on the Timberwolves on Monday. They'll head back to Arco to take on the Pacers Wednesday, then hit the road against for meetings with the Spurs, Grizzlies, and Blazers.
As for the Warriors (3-8) they fell to the Bobcats Saturday evening to begin their four game roadie, then take on the Pistons, Cavaliers, and Nets. They'll head back to Oracle next Friday to take on the Pacers.
These aren't exactly the cream of the crop of the NBA; these are teams both the Kings and the W's need to be beating if they want to get into the playoff race this season.
