OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - There's no place like home for the Golden State Warriors to finish off what they started.
Despite recent road struggles, the Warriors are in prime position to make the playoffs for only the second time in 19 years. Golden State (34-27) has the sixth-best record in the Western Conference entering Wednesday's game against the Sacramento Kings and plays 15 of its final 21 games at Oracle Arena, where an ever-loyal fan base has always made things tough on visitors.
With Andrew Bogut battling back from ankle problems and the defense diminishing of late, the Warriors are still an unknown heading into the home stretch. As coach Mark Jackson said: ``Just because Dorothy clicks her heels and winds up at home doesn't mean that everything's going to be all right.''
