Both the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings got the weekend off to a strong start with wins on Friday, but now both teams will look to keep it going over the rest of the weekend.

Sacramento and Golden State will each play the Boston Celtics this weekend, with Boston first traveling to Golden State for a game Saturday night. The Warriors improved to 9-4 at home on Friday with their 96-89 win against Philadelphia. On Saturday, Golden State will host a Boston team which has struggled on the road. The Celtics are just 5-9 on the road this season and have just one victory in their last seven road contests. Saturday's game will be televised on NBATV with tipoff scheduled for 10:30 p.m. ET.

After playing Golden State on Saturday, Boston will travel to face the Kings on Sunday. Sacramento blew a 27-point lead against New York on Friday but James Johnson hit a game-winning three-pointer to give the Kings the win. Against Boston, Sacramento will be looking for its first back-to-back wins since December 7 and 8. Sunday's game is schedule to tipoff at 9 p.m. ET and will be televised on Comcast Sportsnet-Sacramento.
