Andre Drummond, Tyreke Evans

Defense wins championships. The best offense is a good defense. Every basketball player and fan has heard those words at one point or another. Those phrases have stood the test of time because they remain true.

While the Warriors are a legitimate threat in the playoffs, the Kings will often rise to the challenge of a superior team.
