Sacramento Kings

The Sacramento Kings have been in fine form as they've won six of their last eight games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after blowing past the lowly Hornets in a 123-98 road win on Wednesday. Keegan Murray led the team with 25 points on 11 of 18 shooting, Domantas Sabonis added 24 points with 10 rebounds and seven assists, Malik Monk scored 20 points off the bench while De'Aaron Fox chipped in wiht 19 points. As a team, the Kings shot 51 percent from the field and 13 of 35 from the 3-point line as they took control of the game with a 38-point explosion in the second quarter and they just never took their foot off the gas to come away with the impressive blowout road win.

  • De'Aaron Fox ranks 6th amongst qualified players for points per game (27.9) this season.

Philadelphia 76ers

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers have been in a rut as they've lost four of their last five games overall and they will be hoping to arrest a three-game skid after getting beaten by the Hawks in a 139-132 overtime road loss on Wednesday. Tyrese Maxey led the team with 35 points, nine assists and four steals, Tobias Harris added 32 points, 10 rebounds and four assists while Marcus Morris chipped in with 17 points off the bench. As a team, the 76ers shot 45 percent from the field and 12 of 34 from the 3-point line as they survived in regulation thanks to a missed free throw from the Hawks' Trae Young with just 12 seconds left on the clock,only to get routed in overtime where they scored just seven points.

Kings vs 76ers Prediction

The Kings will likely be without Kevin Huerter for this one, while the 76ers are keeping an eye on Joel Embiid who is a game time decision. The Kings haven't been at their absolute best lately, but they've continued to win games and are coming into this fresh off a massive win over the Hornets, while the 76ers have struggled a little bit lately with Embiid missing time. The Kings would be favorites here if they were more consistent, but with Embiid likely to return, I'll side with the 76ers to get the job done at home.
