JTA: Warriors can run the table on Kings after Game 3 win


One down, three to go. The Warriors have plenty of work to do, but the first-round NBA playoff series with the Sacramento Kings is far from over. 

After falling behind 2-0 in the best-of-seven series, Golden State bounced back to secure a pivotal 114-97 win over Sacramento on Thursday night at Chase Center.

With a win under their belt, the Warriors must win three of the remaining four games to advance to the Western Conference semifinal round. 

Former Warriors forward Juan Toscano-Anderson, who played an important role in Golden State's championship run last summer, joined NBC Sports Bay Area's Bonta Hill, Chris Mullin and Festus Ezeli on "Warriors Postgame Live," where he explained why he believes the Warriors are capable of running the table and rattling off three wins in a row. 

"I think we'll find out Game 4," Toscano-Anderson said. "I think tonight was very pivotal because I think had the Warriors won, now that they run, I think they're capable of running all four in a row. But obviously, Sacramento is a really good team, coached by [Mike Brown], Coach of the Year, great coach. So I'm not going to say the Warriors are going to do it, but they're capable. 

"But that comes with experience, just one game at a time. I remember we lost Game 1 last year in the Finals and Draymond [Green] came into the locker room and said 'don't worry,' Steph [Curry] said 'don't worry.' That was something I'll never forget because it's the Finals against a really good Boston team and you lose Game 1 at home. That's tough. So just that experience I feel goes a long way."

The Warriors and Kings will face off again in Game 4 on Sunday at Chase Center before the series heads back to Golden 1 Center for Game 5 and then alternates between San Francisco and Sacramento for Games 6 and 7. 

If Golden State is to run the table and win out in the series as Toscano-Anderson believes they are capable of doing, it will take at least one win on the road, which has not been kind to the Warriors this 2022-23 NBA season.
