The Sacramento Kings need a win here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 113.6 points on 47.5 percent shooting and allowing 118.4 points on 47.9 percent shooting. De'Aaron Fox is averaging 23.4 points and 3.4 rebounds while Harrison Barnes is averaging 16.6 points and 3.5 assists.

The Nets are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games. The Kings are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall and 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 0 days rest. The over is 20-6 in Nets last 26 overall. The over is 7-2 in Kings last 9 home games. The Nets are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Sacramento and 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings.
The Brooklyn Nets have been a tough team to back due to their lack of defense and they're actually losing their last five games by an average of 1.2 points. With that said, the Sacramento Kings don't play much defense either and they're on the end of a back to back. Right when you're ready to start believing in the Kings, they drop three straight games, and they lose at home by an average of six points. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the rested Nets in this one.
