The Miami Heat and Sacramento Kings meet Thursday in NBA action at the Golden 1 Center.

The Miami Heat look to snap a three-game losing streak. The Miami Heat are averaging 106.6 points on 46.3 percent shooting and allowing 110.1 points on 44.9 percent shooting. Jimmy Butler is averaging 19.9 points and 7.4 assists while Bam Adebayo is averaging 19.8 points and 9.4 rebounds. Tyler Herro is the third double-digit scorer and Goran Dragic is grabbing 3.1 rebounds. The Miami Heat are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 78.5 percent from the free throw line. The Miami Heat are allowing 37.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42 rebounds per game.

The Sacramento Kings need a win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 113.9 points on 47.8 percent shooting and allowing 119.3 points on 48.4 percent shooting. De'Aaron Fox is averaging 23.2 points and 3.3 rebounds while Buddy Hield is averaging 16.1 points and three assists. Harrison Barnes is the third double-digit scorer and Marvin Bagley III is grabbing 7.4 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 36.8 percent from beyond the arc and 72.1 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 39.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.1 rebounds per game.


The Heat are 12-4-1 ATS in their last 17 Thursday games and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Kings are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 Thursday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 5-2 in Heat last 7 overall. The over is 5-2 in Kings last 7 overall. The Heat are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Sacramento and 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings.

The Miami Heat keep experiencing bad loss after bad loss, and now they're on the end of a back to back that included a blown overtime game against the Warriors. The Sacramento Kings have issues they're dealing with on their own, but backing the Heat or even laying chalk with them isn't an option at this point. The Heat can't score, they can't defend the three and at this point they look like they don't even like playing together. Give me the free bucket with the Kings.
