The Charlotte Hornets play host to the Sacramento Kings at the Spectrum Center on Friday night.

The Sacramento Kings have been building nicely lately as they’ve won five of their past seven games and they will be aiming for a fourth straight victory after blowing past the Magic in a 142-130 home win on Wednesday. De’Aaron Fox led the team with 33 points on 12 of 18 shooting, Davion Mitchell and Tyrese Haliburton each scored 18 points while Harrison Barnes and Terence Davis scored 16 points apiece. As a team, the Kings shot 49 percent from the field and 16 of 34 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 70 points in the first half to take a narrow lead into halftime, before outscoring the Magic by 34-25 in the third quarter to push the lead out to 18 points. A total of seven players finished in double figures in scoring, but Buddy Hield had himself a night to forget as he scored just five points on two of 13 shooting off the bench.

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets have been in a real slump as they’ve lost five of their past six games and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after falling just short to the 76ers in a 110-106 home loss on Wednesday. Gordon Hayward led the team with 31 points and seven assists on 10 of 18 shooting, Kelly Oubre Jr. added 22 points with 10 rebounds and three assists while Miles Bridges chipped in with 20 points and five assists. As a team, the Hornets shot 48 percent from the field and 10 of 29 from the 3-point line as they got off to a solid start and led for most of the first half, before falling just short in the second half as they committed a total of 18 turnovers, and they just had no way of stopping the 76ers Joel Embiid who shot 15 of 19 from the free throw line.
