The Sacramento Kings and the Philadelphia 76ers duke it out at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night.
The Sacramento Kings have been in decent shape as they’ve won four of their past six games, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after getting routed by the Knicks in a 112-99 road loss on Sunday. Domantas Sabonis led the way with 20 points, 12 rebounds and four assists, Keegan Murray added 18 points while Kevin Huerter chipped in with 17 points and six assists. As a team, the Kings shot just 39 percent from the field and 10 of 39 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start and were always fighting an uphill battle after getting outscored by 36-22 in the first quarter. Malik Monk had a night to forget as he finished with just 12 points on three of 15 shooting off the bench.
Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers have been in good form as they’ve won five of their last eight games and they will be aiming for a third straight victory after blowing past the Hornets in a 131-113 home win on Sunday. Joel Embiid led the way with 53 points on 20 of 32 shooting, James Harden added 19 points with nine rebounds and 16 assists while Tobias Harris chipped in with 17 points. As a team, the 76ers shot a healthy 55 percent from the field and 13 of 27 from the 3-point line as they took control of the contest with 41 points in the second quarter, before they poured in 70 points in the second half to make it a complete blowout.
Looking at the betting trends, the Kings are 15-7-1 ATS in their last 23 road games and 15-5 ATS in their last 20 games following a loss of more than 10 points. The 76ers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against a team with a winning record, 9-0 ATS in their last nine home games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games overall.
Head to head, the Kings are 8-20 ATS in the last 28 meetings overall and the Kings are 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Philadelphia.
The Kings could be shorthanded here as Alex Len is still out while De’Aaron Fox is currently listed as questionable. The 76ers are again missing Tyrese Maxey but the good news is that they should have Danuel House Jr back in the lineup. The Kings were playing well before they ran into the Knicks on Sunday and they could again be without their spark plug, Fox who is questionable again. The 76ers are getting healthy again and they just blew past the Hornets thanks to a monster game from Embiid who is clearly going for the MVP title. This should be a close one, but I’m sticking with the 76ers to get the job done at home in this spot.
