The Philadelphia 76ers and Sacramento Kings meet Thursday in NBA action at the Golden 1 Center.

Joel Embiid is averaging 23.3 points and 11.8 rebounds while Tobias Harris is averaging 19.2 points and 6.7 rebounds. Ben Simmons is the third double-digit scorer and Josh Richardson is dishing 3.1 assists. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 74.8 percent from the free throw line. The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing 35.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.5 rebounds per game. The Philadelphia 76ers haven’t won a road game since January 20.
The Sacramento Kings look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 108.7 points on 45.8 percent shooting and allowing 110.6 points on 46.7 percent shooting. De’Aaron Fox is averaging 20.4 points and 6.7 assists while Buddy Hield is averaging 19.9 points and 4.9 rebounds.

Will update with trends once they're released.
The Philadelphia 76ers weren't a good road team with Embiid and Simmons, and now they have to continue playing without them. In their last five games, the 76ers are allowing 51 percent shooting from the field and 37.3 percent shooting from deep. The Philadelphia 76ers are 8-22-2 against the spread on the road this season. The Sacramento Kings are playing their best ball of the season and have all of a sudden found themselves in the thick of the playoff race. The Sacramento Kings are winning their last five games by an average of six points while shooting 47 percent from the field. I'm going to lay the reasonable number with the Kings at home.
