The Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings are in a battle during the first round of the playoffs.
After Sacramento won the first two games at home, the Warriors matched by winning the next two at home.
With the series tied 2-2, it is a best of 3 to decide who moves on in the playoffs.
Both teams have been playing at very high levels throughout this series.
They are two of the highest-scoring teams in the NBA and have shown that during this series.
Colin Cowherd believes he is watching the Western Conference Finals in the first round.
That is how high the level of play is for both sides.
"It's a heavyweight fight. It makes all the other teams feel a little slow and all the other series' look a little unskilled."

Three of the four games so far have been highly competitive.
The only blowout came in Game 3 in favor of the Warriors.
One issue for Golden State is that they struggle to win games on the road.
But if they want to move on they must find a way to win one.
The Warriors have an incredible streak of 27 consecutive playoff series with at least one road win.
They have all the experience stealing games on the road, and they hope to do that in Game 5.
It will be interesting to see how the Kings handle the pressure of a long series.
This is the first time in the playoffs for most of their players, and the pressure will continue to elevate.
We are guaranteed at least two more games in this series, but it seems headed for a Game 7.NEXT: Klay Thompson Gives His Thoughts On Draymond Green Coming Off Bench
