The New York Knicks and Sacramento Kings meet Thursday in NBA action at the Golden 1 Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The New York Knicks are averaging 115.5 points on 46.7 percent shooting and allowing 112.4 points on 45.4 percent shooting. Julius Randle is averaging 25.4 points and 10.4 rebounds, while Jalen Brunson is averaging 23.9 points and 3.6 rebounds. RJ Barrett is the third double-digit scorer and Josh Hart is grabbing 5.7 rebounds. The New York Knicks are shooting 35.3 percent from beyond the arc and 76.6 percent from the free throw line. The New York Knicks are allowing 34.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.9 rebounds per game.

The Sacramento Kings are averaging 121.1 points on 49.9 percent shooting and allowing 118.5 points on 49.5 percent shooting. De’Aaron Fox is averaging 25.5 points and 4.3 rebounds, while Domantas Sabonis is averaging 18.9 points and 12.4 rebounds. Harrison Barnes is the third double-digit scorer and Kevin Huerter is grabbing 3.3 rebounds. The Sacramento Kings are shooting 36.9 percent from beyond the arc and 80.1 percent from the free throw line. The Sacramento Kings are allowing 37.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.2 rebounds per game.

The New York Knicks are playing great ball at the moment, and them in the underdog role is appealing. However, the Sacramento Kings have been more consistent over the course of the season, and they win in the favorite role by an average of 6.5 points while shooting 51.3 percent from the field. Also, a rare national TV game for the Kings, so that's cool and could be a part in a squad that has a little more pep in its step. Either way, I'm kind of on the Kings bandwagon. I'll lay the reasonable number.
